Our little Civil War reticule is a faithful reproduction of an example from 1860 that is part of the collection of the Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado. This little purse measures about 6 inches tall, and about 9 inches in diameter. Made up in a silky soft blend of wool and bamboo in cream, this is sure to become your favorite accessory for all your Civil War inspired outfits. A pair of drawstrings closes the top. This purse is lined, as was the original. Just put your favorite handkerchief inside, and you will be ready to go! Proudly hand made in America exclusively for Recollections by Madame s Mercantile.

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.
