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.

I love this outfit! The materials and laces used are quality and the dress is well made. The outfit is perfect for the Dickens Christmas event in our town. I'll have a lot of fun wearing this for our bell choir event!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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!

Risk Worth Taking!
I don't know how I missed the existence of this suit for so long. I will chock it up to not really wearing skirts and therefore paying more attention to the men's section. However, when I went looking for something to pair with my Gibson girl blouse, I did a serious double take, given that I'd bought a pattern for basically this exact outfit years ago, back when I had dilusions of learning to sew well. I'd even planned on using these exact colours! Needless to say, I had to have it. Enter my wacky build. According to my chest measurement, I'm a S. According to my waist measurement, I'm a L. L was out of stock, so Mum and I looked at each other and, after some debate, decided that since I frequently wear M jeans, it would be worth it to order the M. Fingers crossed, I placed the order and... ...PERFECT FIT! I about did a little dance when I tried it on, but there wasn't room in Mum's bathroom! And it's well made and the weight is lovely and the skirt twirls! This will undoubtedly become my 'most worn outfit with an actual skirt' in short order. I want to go to the park in it and just walk around looking amazing.

This is a beautiful suit, well made. Sizing is always an issue with me so I have to be very careful in selecting a size. The chart was a big help. The skirt is long but can be adjusted to my height.

Top notch costumes
I recently ordered costumes to try on for a part I have in an Historical Drama later this year. I chose the Ladies Edwardian Suit together with a blouse in natural and the cameo on the black velvet ribbon. The costumes are very well made, they are a good price for the quality you get, and if you order by measuring they fit perfectly. All skirts are adjustable at the waist and are designed so they can be hemmed to your height. I was able to easily send back the costumes I did not choose easily and recommend this costume source.

This beautiful navy suit is extremely well made. Fabric is good weight and not only looks good, but will hold up. the buttons in the back and the way, the back is made, made it easy to move the buttons to take in the waist a little. Perfect. I'm very pleased with the look, and the quality.

This was purchased initially for a Titanic-themed evening, with future 1910s outings in the future. Anyone who saw it was incredibly impressed and asked where I bought the outfit! It looked very impressive and beautifully detailed. And the sizing was very very generous. The fabric has a nice weight and is well put together. My only gripe would be that it would be nice to mix and match sizes, as while the skirt was a touch large, the jacket was absolutely swimming on me and it will be a shame to have to alter it. All in all, if you're careful about the sizes, then I'd happily recommend it. And the processing and delivery was exceptionally fast.

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 .
