Sorry I couldn't post this sooner, but I haven't read my e-mail since Friday because of the holiday. Wild West Mercantile has a 20% off coupon that is good through midnight tonight (or if you order by mail, must be postmarked by midnight tonight). Use coupon code PC10 to get the discount on everything but ladies' hats. Most of their items are available in sizes S-3XL.

A few things they offer:


Left to right: Edwardian ensemble, $80 with discount, Prarie Coat, $56 with discount, Gibson Girl skirt, $36 with discount, Nicolette ensemble, $96 with discount.

They offer these promotional coupons a few times a year and I'll share them whenever I receive them.

Has anyone here tried out their blouses? Is there any difference (other than brand and price) between the Frontier Classics Victoria Blouse, the Scully Julianne Blouse, and the Wah Maker New Gibson Girl Blouse? I'm hoping that one of them will fit short and busty girls better than the others.

I own the Victoria blouse and I am 5'2" with a 40C and I love it! It is my go to blouse for Edwardian events and can even cross over to the reenactment events. Go with whatever size you normally wear. I got a XL and it was GREAT I am thinking of buying another one

I have the Frontier Classics Victoria blouse in a 2x, and it fits like a dream. I have a 46" bust and large upper arms and generally have trouble finding tops that fit. I have also worn Scully and Wahmaker vests, and found that their sizing generally runs a bit small in the bust.

The Victoria blouse in white is made from a substantial cotton and is an excellent buy for the price-it is very versatile, and I wear mine a lot. The neck is a little high and kind of tight for me, so I usually wear it folded down with a ribbon tie and it looks fine. hope this helps!

I'm tallish and not so busty. I find that they are pretty true to size, but be warned: DO NOT WASH IN HOT WATER! The shirts are not preshrunk, and they will shrink like nobody's business. I washed my shirt ONCE (in my icon pic) and the sleeves got 3 inches shorter, and the neck got much too tight.

I want to get a couple more of those shirts because I love them, but from now on I will only wash them on cold and hang them up to dry.

Whoa, according to their size charts I'm a 14. I'm normally a 6, maybe 8. Do their sizes really run that small?

That does seem rather strange - a size 10, according to their charts, has a 25" waist, but that seems rather small for a US size 10. I only know this because my mom has a 25" waist and she's a size 6. I did purchase a Gibson Girl skirt from WWMerc in size 16 and it ran true to size - I'm sure the waist was larger than 30" as indicated on their size chart.

BTW, the prairie coat runs a bit large. I like my things more fitted, so it inspired me to put all kinds of grommets and laces on mine. I really should get around to taking pictures and post them. It came out really cool looking, in a "Firefly" kind of way.
