    Amazing! I have been looking at this dress for awhile but never sure about any of the fabrics because I was looking for a light blue print. At Christmas they had a special fabric called "Vintage Rose" which was EXACTLY what I was looking for! I ordered right away. I wasn't sure which size because I seemed to fall between a S and XS so I ordered a S and sent in all of my measurements. I was surprised to receive an email from customer service saying that I'd be better suited to an XS. Now THAT'S customer service! The dress itself is very well made - I was surprised that this style was actually figure flattering on me. The fabric is really nice too; it's definitely not your usual run of the mill thin calico fabric. Order this - you won't be sorry! The historical society I'm a member of has a Jane Austen tea every year so now I have something to wear when I volunteer to help out. Definitely will return to Recollections for more items in the future.


    Q: I am interested in the Regency calico dress however I have a couple of questions. How long is it? Can you hem it to a certain length? Also, I am smaller busted and normally take a 4 or 6 so I am conflicted between the XS and a S. Are the waist/hips fairly "free" in this style of dress? Thanks!!!!

    A: The dress finishes at 40 inches from waist to hem. We can alter the length for a 20.00 fee. This is a higher waist dress, so yes the waist and hips are a bit "free". We strongly suggest ordering the size normally worn and posting your bust measurement to ensure a proper fit.

    Q: I have lymphedema in my right arm after my mastectomy and my arm measurements are out of the normal range for my size. My right arm at the bicep is 15

    A: We can put in a larger sleeve for no extra charge. Or we can make the sleeve a bit longer for a 15.00 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.
