This is a wonderfully light fabric with a lot of drape-perfect for summer! Unfortunately, it makes the sleeves more flop than poof, and on a large bust the center of the bodice droops a great deal between the top ruffle and elastic waist. The workmanship is meticulous, matching the pattern in the sleeves to the bottom of the dress with great care to detail. The 30" skirt is a perfect casual length, excellent for church or even casual wear.
A lovely romantic dress for any occasion! The puff sleeves and neckline are very beautiful! A crinoline makes the skirt perfest! Small waist line effect!!!! I always wear blommers or lace teimmed pantalones under the dresses very practical and beautiful when you have to lift the skirt a little the sames lace as the skirt trimmings peak out! I so love the dress! Chapeau dear Ladies!
The sleeves,the fit of the blouse it is perfect! Just what I needed.Elegant, practical, the skirt has pockets! I so love the big pouff sleeves!! This is one of those ensembles, if you have one you want to have an other!. Thank you ladies I love it.
I love it! It combines very well with the adelaide vest. The skirt is so lovely and also with a polonaise jacket .A perfect ensemble to combine with lots of other Recollections garments! It is easy to wear and so romantic! Thank you dear Ladies.
This is a fabulous outfit! I ordered it in grass green, and ordered the Fern jacket in the same twill so I'd have a matching three-piece suit. First of all, the grass green is a wonderful spearmint color -- to die for on a redhead. The shade sets off the white accents beautifully. The skirt is full and has lots of "sashay" about it. The Jacket has beautiful dressmaker details, and fits true to size. The cape as an outer wrap makes an amazing ensemble!
I ordered two prints in this style last year when they were first featured and I love them! They are comfortable and very durable. I love the feminine fabric ruffles around the neckline and the lovely ruching near the skirt hem gives a grace to the gait.
My husband and I dress as an old Western couple for Halloween each year, and I just couldn't make it work with piecing things together on my own. I came across your website, and I ordered the Print Cotton Prairie Dress back in May as a birthday gift to myself. Had concerns on the sizing, but the customer support was fantastic and was able to assist me promptly. I received my dress last week and I was floored at how beautiful it was and how comfortably it fit! Even he mentioned how great it looked and couldn't wait for the next Cheyenne Frontier Days, or Halloween for us to dress up! Thank you again for the beautiful workmanship and awesome customer experience! You all are just fantastic!
I love this dress! It's ultra feminine and gorgeous! Comfortable and beautiful to wear to work, or dress up for an evening out. I wore my dress to work today and received so many admiring compliments. I look forward to filling my wardrobe with more beautiful clothing from Recollections!
It took a rather long time to get to me, which I'll excuse since I live in Australia, but this blouse is absolutely stunning! I am so happy with this blouse. It's simple, the sleeves are lovely, and I definitely recommend it to anyone interested.
When I received this dress, I IMMEDIATELY fell in love with it. The fit was perfect for me (thanks to their expert customer service). With my petticoat and corset underneath, the cut of the dress gave the ideal illusion of a thin waist and curved hips. My favorite part of the dress is the lace around the neckline - it's so soft and delicate. It's definitely a must-buy!!
I own a number of Recollections skirts now, and this has to be one of my favorites! The lace trim at the bottom is a great touch, and the skirt is very full. It's about 25 inches long (in medium), not counting the lace, so it lands just below the knees. On its own, it has a nice A-line look, but with a short petticoat, it fluffs out very nicely (note: it is full enough to handle the 1950s' style tutu sold from Recollections, but the tutu is a little too long?
I love the dress, the sleeves are perfect, but be carefull with the sizing the tafetta dresses is true to size. The fabric is very beautiful, I ordered copper. It makes you feel like a victorian lady! And the lace collar and cuffes are very beautiful made and look also very good on a simple top or jacket!
