Cordelia Pioneer Dress - Wine

Cordelia Pioneer Dress

Item: 002741



Youíll feel nostalgic for a little house on the prairie when you slip into our Cordelia Pioneer Dress in wine. A step back into time when the early 19th century woman needed to stay cool and comfortable for all her obligations in the home, at the hearth and, occasionally, heading into town.

Buttoning from the bottom of the full skirt to the top of the rounded neckline, this vintage-look womenís dress features pin-tucking on the front and highly-gathered sleeves with 5-button cuffs that are indicative of the era. Two pockets are inset into the side seams of the skirt to hold a hankie, the cellar door key or other little necessities.

Made from 100% cotton; pre-washed and dried to keep shape. Machine wash cold and hang dry or professionally dry clean. Imported. Available in ladiesí sizes S - 3X. Dress is approximately 48 inches from the back of the neck to the hem. Offered in several colors.

Note: Button count on sleeve may vary.

I have been buying clothes from Historical Emporium for a few years now, because of the high quality of workmanship!! Although I'm not always spot on with sizing, the fabrics used, cloth covered buttons and the attention to detail never disappoint. This dress is very comfortable to wear and looks great!!! For me, living in a hot climate, I would have maybe liked this dress to have a collar of some sort to protect my neck from the sun as I ride in my sulky!! Historical Emporium are a delight to order through with deliveries quite fast considering I live half way around the world from them!!!!!!! Thanks

This dress is for my granddaughter and I hope she likes it. The material is a little heavier than I expected which is a good thing, will update when my granddaughter tries it on.

I have been looking at this dress for awhile. Had to get it. Wonderful color, quality and style. I'm sorry I waited so long.

Well-made and comfortable
I was not expecting this dress to be quite so beautiful as it is. The fabric hangs so perfectly and blows just great in the breeze, while still being very durable. One of the button holes needed reinforcing, since it kept coming open, but otherwise this dress is far better than I expected in all ways. And that is not to say I had low expectations, I just thought for the price, it was not going to be QUITE this nice.

I really like this dress. It looks like a dress from the 1830's. Next month I'll be wearing it along with the Muslin Bonnet in front of the Alamo in San Antonio. I'm part of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, and we are doing a presentation to celebrate the independence of Texas from Mexico. The dress is made well and looks very authentic.

Cordelia pioneer dress
This dress fit perfectly right. I am a size 10-12. I am a guest speaker for women's groups and it was just right for late 1800's topic.

Very happy with the pioneer dress, the fit was perfect, except I had to take up the shoulders, thankyou and I know I am going to enjoy wearing it to our annual Blockhouse opening of the locks in Merrickville, Ontario, Canada!

I had to buy a large when I usually wear medium. However, with alterations at the shoulder seams and shortening the sleeves, the dress fit me fine. The dress came down to my ankles since I am short. I wore it for the function for which I needed the dress - 1840s time period and receved several compliments both on the style and fit.
