    The Civil War Era inspired fashion that any woman desired to have in her wardrobe. Now, for all you Civil War enthusiasts, your wish can come true by owning this elegant ball gown. It is an ideal style reminiscent of the time period. The gown is both beautiful and easy to care for, a fine combination to find in your attire.

The overskirt is cut in an asymmetrical fashion and trimmed in a trio of the same handmade roses and satin ribbon. The separate underskirt is created with a triple flounce that easily accommodates a 4-bone hoop or extra full crinoline. The underskirt has an elastic waist. Proudly made in the US by Recollections. Machine or hand wash on gentle cycle in cold water; Tumble dry on low setting or hang to dry.

    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

    What size should I order?

    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 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.
