    Reviewer: sherryrobin b (springfield, WV)

    My Corrrina dress arrived yesterday. So beautiful. I can not believe the quality of your fabric and sewing. Packaging and shipping are just the best. Everyone there is so helpful. This dress is just beautiful ....mine is in copper and black. Fits so we'll........and best of all it is American Made. Thanks to have a regular customer.

    Reviewer: Linda L (Omaha, NE)

    I ordered two Corrina outfits in copper and red. They are wonderful! I get so many complements on them, and they are very comfortable to wear. I especially love the style, so Victorian. I would love to have this outfit in every color!

    The Corrina is very well made and beautiful in the green taffeta. It is sure to be admired and even envied at the Dickens Festival.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fabulous dress!, 6.20.2014
    Reviewer: Lenore R (Yucaipa, CA)

    This dress is amazing! The fit is perfect and very flattering. Sometimes I have a problem with dresses that button down the front pulling at the bust. This dress does not do that at all. The taffeta is substantial, there is no show through or pulling of the seams. The dress is very well made and I can't wait to show it off. I bought it in plum and plan to wear it to a steampunk event in a couple of weeks. The only possible drawback is that because the dress is heavy, I just might cook in the California heat. Oh well, the price we pay for beauty... Right? I highly recommend this dress!

    Reviewer: Marcella (Reno, Nevada)

    I wore this for my Victorian themed wedding and received so many compliments! I had the hat, gloves, and parasol, too.

    Q: My caroling group in interested in the brocade ball gown with the train. Could they be made without the train-as we walk around a lot outside

    A: Yes we can leave the train off, the price remains the same and will make the item non-returnable. Keep in mind that the skirt does bustle in the back.

    Q: Is the Lilac also a shiny fabric or is it more matte?

    A: The lilac has a sheen to it as well, but seems a bit more subdued. We would be happy to send a fabric sample at no charge.

    Q: How long does it take to receive this dress?Silver medium.Thank you

    A: 4-6 weeks

    Q: Can it be customized? I had ordered XS before but it still turned out a bit large in the chest area.

    A: Yes, we can do a bodice adjustment for a $35.00 fee.

    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.
