This is a Floral PRINT
This says it is royal blue, but it is actually a floral print design. Other than that it is a nice outfit. It doesn't match the shiny vest I bought my husband to wear. I am not sure if I got the wrong dress or if this is supposed to be floral print. I was thinking it was blue satin but it is not.

Very pleased with this product!
Ordered this dress because I would not have had time to make it myself. Was very pleased with the quality & workmanship! The fabric has a really nice feel to it, is a good weight, & the structure of the dress is very detailed & finished off very well. The color & print is beautiful & there is a lot of fabric in the skirt! I will wear it with a hoop slip underneath! Can't wait to wear it for our upcoming party!

I love this dress. It's perfect for the Victorian events I want to wear it to. It's in 2 pieces; so as I lose weight I can simply fold and sew the waist line and it's hidden under the top. I can also add a few chains and swap out my hat, shoes and bag and I have a Victorian Steampunk outfit. It's absolutely perfect for all the events I have planned for the next year.

The dress fits like a glove
I had my eye on this dress for sometime as I attend the Dickens Fair in San Francisco every year. Being in between sizes in the hips I was hesitant to get a size medium for fear of it being too tight or for that matter a large size and it would be too big. The representatives assured me that the larger size would work, and taking into consideration the hoop skit to be worn underneath they were right and as a result , the entire dress fit like a glove. The material is gorgeous and everything from the buttons, the sleeves, the lace and pleats below are extremely well made. Tis true as one other reviewer wrote that if the skirt portion is too long, then simple roll up the waist a bit and voilà! It takes some practice to get used to walking in a hoop skirt but overall the effect is stunning and one feels as if they have gone back in time.

Pretty but sizing off
I ordered this suit for a murder mystery dinner fundraiser that was set in Old West days. I won the best dressed award! It is a pretty suit. However, the sizing is really off so bear that in mind when ordering. I had read another review that the skirts run small so I ordered a size larger than I normally wear so the skirt would fit (it did) but then the top was way too big! So, skirt ran small, top ran way big. It would be nice if you could order the pieces indidually so that both would fit correctly.

Great Dress
Very nice material and beautiful pattern. I'm 5'4" and 148 lbs and it fit beautifully. The length of the skirt will adjusted but is simply a matter of rolling up the waistband without need for any tailoring. This looks wonderful and will be fun to accessorize for our Old West parties and reenactments.

Great Outfit
This outfit is the hit of our play. It is beautifully constructed. The material is high quality. It is just beautiful. Because it is all cotton, I would recommend ordering the next size larger if planning to wash and dry yourself.

Was a hit!
I was invited to a party with an 'Old West" Theme. The site of the party was in a historic home with its own saloon. My dress was era perfect and a hit with all the guests. I loved the fit and quality of the dress. Found it to be very comfortable and flattering. Thanks for helping to me to 'fit' in and stand out!

Well even though I measured it is too big, I had hoped to move the buttons but a sewing friend says no. I had to leave town the day after recieivng it so haven't returned it yet since the event it is needed for isn't till August should be okay only need the next size down. Having said that the dress is well made, all you tall people don't worry I am 5' 7" and it is way too long but since it has an elastic waist can pull it up so no problem. Very gererous in the bust which is where my problem is that I need another smaller size. Alsa since haven't been able to actually wear it can't say more

Great Quality
Great quality and they got here to PA really quickly. My wife is pretty discerning when it comes to her costumes and she was really pleased. She is 5'1" and the two piece design worked well, no need for alterations.

Lucille Walking Suit, Royal
It fits perfectly! A little long but by turning the waist band once, I didn't even need to shorten it. Better quality than I was expecting.

Lucille Walking Suit
I am very happy with the Lucille Walking Suit. I am only 5ft, 3" and it is a little too long for my height, but I am able to hem it and it will be perfect for my purpose. I model vintage era clothing with a group of ladies and we donate all the proceeds to charity. The color is beautiful!

Fitting issue
This suit is well-made and lightweight. However, the fitting leaves a lot to be desirec. I measured my frame as per guidance. However, the suit does not fit my frame, which is unfortunate. I am 6 ft tall and have long slim but muscular arms and legs. I have broad shoulders and chest. The waistcoat has had to be adjusted to its slimmest fitting, and looks fine now. The jacket itself, the underarms are too low, and the sleeves too long - reaching my knuckles. The waist has a very high rise favoured by elderly men and the thigh area of the legs is generous to the extreme - too generous for me. The suit would be ideal for a person with a larger frame, thicker thighs and upper arms, and a paunch. I must emphasise that this is a fitting issue that is personal to me.

Hot weather suit
This is a nice extremely light weight natural linen suit. It feels like it will be perfect for hot summer weather. The plastic buttons are kind of a bummer but they weren't a surprise!

Summer linen suit
Next year, all being well, a very good friend is 'tying the knot' for the second time. It will happen in the summer, out in the country, in Sweden. The days are very long and bright and hot about then - to make up for the long freezing blackness of the Swedish winter. A light summer suit is exactly what is required, with a crisp Edwardian shirt and a silk cravat - with a Panama hat, of course.

Beautiful Dress, worth the investment!
I was impressed with the quality of the dress. I had a Wild West themed event to attend and this dress was perfect. I am sure I will make good use of it. I bought the white lace up boots to finish off the look.

Wonderully made
My husband particpates in an Annual Gentlemen's Motorcycle ride and I wanted an outfit that would match his look. This suit is beautifully made. Since we live in Colorado and have lot's of red dirt and dust, I expect the white ruffles will quickly get dirty and will probably add some black ruffles to the bottom hem. I have to admit I only own one white tank top and that is it for that color here! Did I say my husband loves me in this??

high quality, great value
I'm a man, years ago for Galveston's Dickens on the Strand, my late wife got one of these in brown, and I got a merchant outfit - the frock coat, vest, top hat, etc. This year, a new lady friend of mine and I decided to be a little wacky for the Houston Museum of Natural Science Halloween party. My late wife's outfit was a pinch too tight, so I got this for me. I was an 1880's lady sheriff, handcuffs, etc, I tell everyone how well made, authentic and comfortable the clothes are and hope to get more friends to buy from you as we all go to Dickens this year. People are used to stuff from Party City or those temporary Halloween stores and are really impressed with high class stuff and are of an age that we can spend a little more on fun. (but I'm done with any gender bender til next Halloween)

The dress feels natural
I do not and have not worn a dress in many, many years, but I really enjoyed putting this dress on along with the Hoop Underskirt. I am a short person and both the Skirt and the Hoop Underskirt will need to have some adjustment done to the length but otherwise, I am very happy with them. I ordered a size larger than I normally wear but it may be I actually do wear the size I ordered. I am excited to actually put it on for the Christmas parade this weekend. Thank you very much for having the Vintage Clothing available for purchase. I will continue to shop and buy as the need arises.

Well made
This is made well with sturdy material. Being 5' 1" I was afraid of it being too long, but a turn of the waist brings it up enough. Be aware, dry clean only.

Looks good
The suit looks good but the pants are made of very thin fabric. Very difficult to work with and get the measured length. Not great for the money. A bit disappointed.

O no spots!!!
I received my tux earlier than expected (AWESOME) Fit is perfect as usual. I put on the vest and low and behold marks pencil I believe. Looks as if a pencil was dragged across parts of the vest to makk button placement. On the white vest . This is my only complaint. Hopefully cleaners can remove whilehaving trousers taken up .
