Q: How long is the skirt from waist to hem and also would it look appropriate over. 6-ring hoop skirt?
A: The length from waist to hem will be approximately 41-42 inches as it can accommodate a four bone or 6 bone hoop.
Q: if I wanted a fichu or collar to accessorize this dress, which one would you recommend? I would like the dress made in cinnamon and I want to stay away from black.
A: If black is not an option for you, than ivory would best compliment the cinnamon color. Here are some item suggestions for you, 71241, 204 and 205.
Q: Can this dress be made in any other fabric?Thanks!
A: It would be helpful to know what fabric you are thinking of. We have similar styles in taffeta and cotton.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
