Romantic Era Cotton Dress  and Cape

    Romantic Era Cotton Dress and Cape

    Code: 81033-4

    A charming cotton dress and pelerine collar from the Romantic Era. The bodice has a slight point at the center front waist and front button metal closure, to which is gathered a full cotton skirt - equal fullness at the waist and the hem. The sleeves have a short cap, followed by shirring and gathering of a wide sleeve. The width of the sleeve continues below the elbow, and finally tapering to the wrist. The detachable pelerine collar falls elegantly from the shoulders, tying in front. Alicia is wearing an extra full crinoline, jewelry and gloves and they are priced separately. Designed and made proudly by Recollections in America.

    Reviewer: Claire W (Pinole, CA)

    I ordered this dress in the Paris fabric for the Dickens' Fair after researching on line for 1840's fashion. It is an almost match to one in a museum from that time period. It took a while to get it but it fits perfectly. I received so many comments and compliments about the authentic look I had. I am extremely happy with this dress!


    Q: Will you ever be selling the pelerine collar as a separate item like how you sell the trinity cape separate from the ensemble? It'd be lovely to buy it in coordinating colors to go with other cotton dresses available.

    A: We can sell it separately, the price would be $43.95. You would have to call in your order.

    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.
