Victorian Lace and Taffeta Dress

    Victorian Lace and Taffeta Dress

    Code: 80966-636

    Taffeta is combined with point d'esprit lace to fashion a Victorian fancy 2 piece dress. The top features an open square neckline and lace filled yoke with a point d'esprit lace peplum. Vertical rows of braid emphasize the curvy cut of the jacket. Sheer point d'esprit lace sleeves are elbow length, finished with the same lace ruffle, and trimmed in narrow lace. A long row of taffeta covered buttons close the front. The columnar taffeta skirt is effusively decorated, in the Victorian manner, with rows and rows of ruffled lace, tulle rosette, braid, and beaded fringe. Very detailed 19th century style. Acetate taffeta; polyester lace. Dry clean. The model is wearing a crinoline under her skirt, gloves, choker, earrings and boots and they are priced separately. Recollections clothing is made in America.

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stunning!, 12.4.2014
    Reviewer: Cindy F. (Avella, PA)

    I purchased this outfit in the dark green for a Christmas event where I play the piano in a fabulous 1860's mansion ballroom. It was perfect. The workmanship was exquisite and attention to detail perfect. If you watch the sales you can get a wonderful outfit reasonably priced. Customer service was wonderful as well. Calculate your measurements as this is fitted at the hips.

    Reviewer: Bianca (L, Limburg)

    I have the dark blue taffeta, it is so beautiful made all those lace trimmings, it feels so light and airy. This is the type of set you would love to own in every colour!!! (When you order it don't forget a crinoline).


    Q: Is there enough room in the skirt for a bustle pad with this dress? So lovely.

    A: Possibly, depending on the bustle.

    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.
