Worn during formal evening events, gowns were the finest garments owned by Victorian maidens. Made of luxurious fabrics like brocade and damask, gowns were expensive. While a wealthy woman might have several evening gowns to choose from, most women only had one gown. Evening gowns were worn for a variety of evening events, including balls, dinner parties, theatre performances, and operas.

Depending on the event at hand, different styles of evening gowns were worn. For a smaller party or event, a modest light or dark colored gown was worn depending on season. For a larger festivity, an off the shoulder fashionable gown was worn. The choice of gown could be quite stressful, as many were uncertain of what to wear where. Many articles were published at the time, voicing different opinions on the matter.

Here at Recollections, we have historically accurate gowns for every occasion! Our extravagant gowns are unique and show stopping. Be the belle of the ball in a satin ball gown or the perfect hostess in a fancy bustle dress. All of our gowns are available in sizes XS to XXXXL and made in the USA. We can't wait to make your next (or first) Victorian evening gown!
