Taffeta is combined with point d'esprit lace to fashion a Victorian fancy 2 piece dress. The top features an open square neckline and lace filled yoke with a point d'esprit lace peplum. Vertical rows of braid emphasize the curvy cut of the jacket. Sheer point d'esprit lace sleeves are elbow length, finished with the same lace ruffle, and trimmed in narrow lace. A long row of taffeta covered buttons close the front. The columnar taffeta skirt is effusively decorated, in the Victorian manner, with rows and rows of ruffled lace, tulle rosette, braid, and beaded fringe. Very detailed 19th century style. Acetate taffeta; polyester lace. Dry clean. The model is wearing a crinoline under her skirt, gloves, choker, earrings and boots and they are priced separately. Recollections clothing is made in America.
I purchased this outfit in the dark green for a Christmas event where I play the piano in a fabulous 1860's mansion ballroom. It was perfect. The workmanship was exquisite and attention to detail perfect. If you watch the sales you can get a wonderful outfit reasonably priced. Customer service was wonderful as well. Calculate your measurements as this is fitted at the hips.

it is a dream,so beautiful!
I have the dark blue taffeta, it is so beautiful made all those lace trimmings, it feels so light and airy. This is the type of set you would love to own in every colour!!! (When you order it don't forget a crinoline).
