Q: I am looking for a civil war era ballgown - my problem I am 6' tall and my inseam is 36" - can you make your dresses longer to accommodate the proper attire with hoop skirt?
A: Yes we can alter the length for a 20.00 fee, and this will make the dress non-returnable.
Q: Which part of the dress would be purple and what color would the underskirt be? I love the white, but I walk in several parades a year and white would be very difficult to keep clean.
A: Both parts will be purple, and you would choose the lace color.
Q: What fabric is this made from?
A: 100% cotton

Most people find that our sizing runs generously. If you are undecided with which size to order, it is best to order the smaller size, or give us a call to assist you (1-800-452-5925). You may also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your measurements (bust and waist) and we can help you choose the nearest size.
An exception to the generous sizing is the type of ball gown that requires boning in the bodice and that supports a heavy skirt. Many times this style is also "off-the-shoulder" and requires a firm fit to stay up. These styles tend to not run as generously as most of our other garments because of this. But please, give us a call if you are uncertain.
In most cases you should take your bust and waist measurement to determine your size. Please wear the undergarments that you intend to wear when you do your measuring. For example, take your measurement over the type of brassiere or corset that you may be wearing.
Measure the fullest part of your bust around and the smallest part of your waist.
