The polonaise style gown is so pretty and easy to wear, you will find yourself reaching for this ensemble often. The fitted jacket has a high, lace-trimmed neckline, and a deep V-shaped yoke front and back trimmed out with a rich, deep lace ruffle. Sleeves are fitted closely to the arm until just above the elbow, and then fall gracefully into two deep ruffles- one of lace and one of calico. The extended panels of the jacket are pleated and bustled to give the elegant cascading ruffled look- the hallmark of the polonaise style. The matching skirt has a comfortable elastic waist, and a slight train which can be bustled in the back or left down to form a train. A deep ruffled flounce trims out the hem. Wide lace is ruffled at the center front of the skirt and all along the flounce. You get to choose the print calico fabric to make this dress uniquely yours. 100% cotton with polyester lace trim. Please hand wash in cold water, and then hang to dry, and iron. Emily is wearing a crinoline underneath the dress, gloves, boots, hat, and carrying a fan, all of which are available priced separately. Designed and made proudly by Recollections in America. Just stunning!
