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.

How sweet and feminine is this beautiful three-piece Victorian styled ensemble? The gently fitted jacket has a wide neckline, and very full poufed sleeves that gather into a cuff just above the elbow with a deep lace ruffle. The lace-and-ribbon trimmed over-sleeve adds even more fullness. The bodice front has a button closure and the hemline has flattering points on either side of the center front. The long, full underskirt may be worn bustled as shown, or left down to give a slight train. The underskirt has a comfortable elastic waist, and a deep flounce at the hemline topped with a lovely lace accent. The separate calico overskirt has secret twill tapes sewn to the inside, so you can bustle it up at the back, or leave them down for a smooth look. The overskirt has a drawstring waist. The entire ensemble is made up in crisp cotton in your choice of patterns, so pick out your favorite and get your order in right away! 100% cotton - please hand wash in cold water, and then hang to dry, and iron. Acetate lace and ribbon trim. Emily is also wearing a crinoline underneath, gloves, boots, hat, earrings and holding a parasol, all of which are priced separately.
