The costume is gorgeous and shipped quickly. My only complaint is that the armband is too small. I emailed to see if they had a bigger size, but it is one size. If you have larger arms, the armband may not fit.

The dress was very pretty and well fitted to my body type. I was worried it might be baggy on me since I'm 5'7” and 118 pounds, but it fit me nicely. It looks even prettier with a petty coat underneath. It's long enough that my feet don't show which I really like because picking shoes to wear is a nightmare for me. It came in the mail quickly.

This Victorian-era Civil War nurse's dress is a perfect tribute to renowned figures such as Clara Barton and Florence Nightingale. Meticulously designed in the quintessential long Victorian style, it is constructed from resilient polyester gabardine fabric. The dress has a zipper at the back for convenience and features long, full sleeves with elegant button cuffs, enhancing its period-accurate appearance.

Accompanying this dress is a white tie-back apron emblazoned with the notable red cross, a matching nurse's hat, and an armband, all collectively evoking the authentic look of a historical nurse's uniform. This ensemble not only offers historical accuracy but also exudes the respect and nobility associated with medical professionals of that era.

Furthermore, this Civil War-era dress allows for personalization to align with your style or specific character portrayal. Available in a selection of colors - Black, Slate Blue, Brown, or Grey - it allows you to customize your outfit, ensuring both historical fidelity and a unique personal touch. Whether channeling the spirit of Victorian nursing pioneers or creating a distinctive historical representation, this dress offers the perfect blend of authenticity, elegance, and versatility.

 What size should I order?

"Selecting the right size is crucial when ordering our garments. Please refer to the size chart provided for each individual item, as it is tailored to the specific measurements of that item. You can find the size chart as a photo in the product listing or on a separate informational page. Please follow the measurement instructions provided on the size chart.

Our garments do not follow standard modern-day sizing because they are created based on patterns from specific historical periods. The measurements we provide on the size chart represent the dimensions of the garment itself, not body measurements.
