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.

Here is the perfect ensemble to wear to that Dickens Festival - or any special event!
The dress is made up in your choice of one of our dupioni fabrics, and
has a black velvet collared neckline, long sleeves with a sweet black lace flounce below the elbow,
and a black velvet front button closure. A black taffeta gimp trummed cuff extends below the lace ruffle on the sleeve. The attached long skirt is full enough to accommodate
a hoop if you like. Please hand wash gently in cold water, and then
tumble dry on low setting, or hang to dry. Proudly made in America by
Recollections. Liesa is also wearing jewelry, gloves, an extra full
crinoline, and boots - all are available priced separately.
