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. Additionally, you may add your measurements (bust and waist) at check out 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.
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.

If you are a Civil War re-enactor, or simply love the romance of the antebellum era, you simply must own this lovely Civil War inspired ensemble. The fitted jacket has a simple high neckline, and long sleeves - the dropped shoulder seam is correct for the period. Metal buttons close the bodice at the front and the fabulous crenellated peplum adds beautiful detail to the front. The very full skirt is gathered into a buttoned waistband and the hemline measures approximately 135 inches around. You get to select from our lovely collection of cotton prints. Proudly designed and made in America by Recollections! Please machine or hand wash gently, and then tumble dry on low setting, or hang to dry. 100% cotton calico. Liesa completes her ensemble by wearing an exra full crinoline underneath, gloves, and hat, and they
are all available priced separately. How romantic!
