    Gown and Fichu

    Code: 81100-1

    A classic taffeta gown styled after the mid 19th century with a special touch. This gorgeous gown comes with a taffeta fichu, fashioned after the circa mid 1800's, which was used to fill in the low neckline of a bodice. This gown has a fitted and boned bodice, attractive scooped low neckline, and slight V-shape to the front and back waist. Short shirred sleeves are off-the shoulder. The full skirt can accommodate a hoop skirt underneath or an extra full crinoline. Topping of this beautiful gown is the taffeta fichu. This separate piece goes over the shoulders and meets at the center front and back connecting to a black velvet belt. Long, flowing sashes in the front are trimmed in the ruffled lace and black reembroidered lace appliques. Black beaded fringe trims the draped taffeta off the shoulder. Dry clean. Acetate taffeta. Liesa is wearing jewelry, boots, gloves, extra full crinoline, and carrying a fan, all of which are priced separately. Designed and made proudly by Recollections in America!

    Q: None of the bodices have zippers? What do you use as closure for the back of the bodices. Not just ball gowns, but all of your dresses.

    A: This dress is offered in zipper or hook and eye closures. As our some of our other gowns.

    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.
