Cordelia Pioneer Dress - Black

Very authentic

Item: 005005



Obligations and avocations, our Cordelia Dress in black will befit all of a woman’s daily duties. In the 19th century, those misses living in rural areas needed a practical frock that could both perform and look pretty.

Buttoning from the bottom of the full skirt to the top of the rounded neckline, this vintage-look women’s 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 ladies’ 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.

Gorgeous workmanship
The dark color in the picture online does not show how very well designed and well sewn this is. Unlike costumes, this is made to last.

Mostly agood dress
Over all very pleases with this dress. It did loose a button the very first time I washed it, which was more than a little annoying. Other than that is is everything I had hoped for.

Great fit... except for the sleeves
The dress fits my torso like a glove, but the sleeves are incredibly baggy and long. Will be getting them tailored, but other than that the dress is great. Great material and historically accurate.

Excellent quality
LOVE this dress. Personally this is something that I will be able to wear all the time. The quality is excellent. This is not like a costume at all, but is a great dress. For me this fit true to what my size normally is. I originally sized up using the measurements but then needed to exchange for my usual size. Exchanging was quick and easy.

Lovely dress
I purchased the print pioneer dress. It is so beautiful and I love the five button ribbon on the cuffs. I have received many compliments on this outfit.

Very authentic
Loved this dress,, of good quality and great workmanship for a reasonable price. I put together a costume as a Presbyterian Church Lady for our Florida town's rededication of its Presbyterian Church founded in 1895 (and still standing.) I had only to add a dickey with a standup collar, add a cameo, black hat with egret feathers and granny boots for an authentic look. The dress fabric is a dull black sturdy cotton with decorative pleats and embroidery down the front. Very authentic -
