I absolutely love this dress !! Shipping was quick and the dress fit wonderfully. It really made my fist festival a memory I will cherish forever.

I am absolutely in love with this dress... especially the skirt! So much skirt, it moves so wonderfully as I walk around. And it is so comfortable to wear too- if I had the choice, I'd wear it constantly as my daywear! I purchased the Armstreet stock size 4, and it's pretty much perfect for me who is roughly a US 8-10, with a small chest. Thank you so much!

Love this dress. It’s perfect length and flows lovely. I like that it’s linen and breathable. The only negative is the fabric that holds the D rings for the lacing in the front is starting to fray. It hasn’t broke yet and hopefully won’t but I might have to fix it. It is snug in the chest so that’s why it might be fraying from a little extra pressure. Regardless I love it!

We received this dress for my daughter and have been so impressed with the quality and fit of the Dress. It is really well made out of proper linen, I would definitely recommend Armstreet if you are after authentic well made dresses.

I cannot recommend Armstreet enough. Ordering this dress was one of the best online purchasing experiences of my life. After a catastrophic costume fail just over a week before an event I went in on the Alchemist's Daughter Dress and matching Medieval Chemise. I did not regret it at all. The customer service was first class. Their team reached out to me fast to answer my questions and I was really touched by the care they put in to make sure the garments would fit. The expedited shipping was incredible, shipping over a weekend and reached me within 4 days (I live in Australia so shipping is normally measured in weeks, occasionally months). I was gobsmacked. The dress arrived and it was wonderful. The material was of such a fantastic quality and the dress was beutifully finished. I wore it for the two days of the medieval fair and it was the most comfortable I have ever been in a costume. I felt like a princess for the first time in my life, and did not want to take it off. It also weathered beautiful, surviving rain, sun, mud, bits of burning dragon, being washed and then worn again. So my advice is this: Buy the dress you've been staring at for the past year. You won't be disappointed.

I received this dress as a birthday present, and I highly recommend it! I'm a performer in a Medieval Fair in Oklahoma, and wearing 2+ layers gets very hot during fair, so I am ecstatic about how light this dress is. It is very well made, looks great both with and without the sleeves, and the skirt fans out wonderfully when spinning, so it's perfect for dancing. It's going to be fantastic for performing, and I can't wait to put it to use! Kudos to you for making a wonderful dress!

i just showed this to my mum and she asked me what film is it from? i said its not from a film its a normal fantasy dress to wear when you want and wear to haloween party but i wouldn't affront these beautiful clothes by wearing them to a halloween party. i don't even celebrate haloween this dress and others like it are too fabulous to be worn just as a costume let alone a haloween party if i ever go to hobbiton or any adventure like it i would wear my clothes i got from here and some westwood. i would have this dress in burgundy red and green, brown and green, green with brown does the white one underneath it come seperately.ArmStreet team:
Super, many thanks for such a great review! The white chemise is not included, but available separately in our store - https://armstreet.com/store/medieval-clothing/medieval-exclusive-xiv-century-style-chemise-underdress.

I would like to thank you for the amazing work you've been doing out there.I received my dress a few months ago and I was speechless with the highest possible quality and simply how beautiful it was in reality. Actually it is even more stunning than in the pictures! Besides, it fits me absolutely perfect. I am a singer of a band and the dress served me as an outfit for two performances (both played at medieval castles). I've attached a few photos to see your great work in action:) Wish you all the best with present and future projects. Your contribution to preserving and keeping the memory of Medieval Ages alive is outstanding!Mike:
Thank you very much for your feedback. Enjoy your dress!

Do you have a photo of a garment showing what the burgundy color in linen looks like? The swatch makes it appear like a dark reddish color, but in photos of clothing made in the burgundy cotton it looks more like a pink color.
Dear Orsola, this dress is made of burgundy linen (not cotton), which is a dark red linen color.
Does the dress come with the chemise ??
Hi Jez, the chemise is available for purchase separately here.
Hi there I was wondering how much this dress would be in size 0 or 2 in red burgundy but with greensleeves narrow trim. Thank you
Dear Georgette, such customization costs $25 extra. Please simply select custom size option for the dress and leave this request in the comment to your order.
I’m planning to purchase the fixed size/ready to ship dress now. However, I also love the longer “lady of the lake” style sleeves. If I ordered a fixed size “alchemist’s daughter” with the standard detachable sleeves (so that I could have it shipped express right away), would it be possible to also order a set of custom sleeves with the lady of the lake sleeves that would lace onto the existing short sleeves part of the alchemist’s daughter dress? If so, I could order both the ready to ship dress today and the additional set of sleeves
Hi Alexandra, unfortunately, it is not possible to make Lady of the Lake sleeves separately from the dress. It might be possible to make this dress with such sleeves, but they won't be detachable.
Does the Dress “The Alchemist's Daughter” fit the same as the Forget Me Not dress?
Hi Willow, yes they fit similar.
Hello, I really like the option of the detachable sleeves and the design of the sleeves with this dress in comparison to the Archeress dress. However, would this dress work with the Archeress chemise? I'm not sure from the pictures if or how far up you could undo the bottom half of the sleeves. I'm torn because I love the sleeves and look of that Chemise.
Hi Lauren, this dress can be worn with Archeress chemise but without the sleeves then.
How tall is the woman modelling this dress? I notice that it sweeps the ground -- I'm just under 5'10" (and size 4 according to your size charts) and while I love the look of the dress, I'm used to very few clothing items "sweeping the ground" on me. (Your 58" chemise hits my ankles, which is perfect.) I would not be too disappointed if my hem wound up being just an inch or two higher on me than on the model (but if it wound up being mid calf or something, I'd have to look for solutions. :D I know you do custom, but if we're talking just an inch or two, I think there would be no need. Many thanks!
Dear Camille, the dress was made in custom size for the model. Our pre-made dresses are 148 cm long so we recommend to order custom size dress in your case. The dress can be made ankle length upon request.
I understand this dress (Alchemist's Daughter) can be made with regular sleeves...is that correct? Can you please tell me how the dress fastens. I don't see lacing or such. Thank you.
Dear Caroline, the dress is fastened in front with a hidden lacing. We do not make this dress with long sleeves, unfortunately.
Hi there! Is it possible to order the sleeves separately? I would like to mix and match with the sleeves to have some variation. I'm interested in the wine red most of all, but also possibly the green and blue. Thanks!
Hi Mindy, yes, it is possible.
Can The Alchemists Daughter Dress Be Made To Measure Thank you.
Yes, sure, just switch to the "Custom size" tab, choose the colors and
enter all the measurements required.
I am planning on custom ordering my dress, Can I order this dress/bodice with the longer Lady of the Lake type sleeves on it?
Yes, it can be made with the long bell sleeves trimmed with the bias binding of the contrast color or with the narrow trim for $45.00 extra.
Hi there I appreciate this might not be possible (!) but is there any chance at all that if I were to purchase the Alchemist's Daughter dress (in one of the set sizes, i.e. not made to measure!), the chemise and probably the matching belt, necklace and headdress, there is any chance at all that it might get to the UK by Friday 26th August?! I realise this is a huge ask so please don't feel bad if you think it is impossible (I imagine it may very well be so) but thought I'd ask just in case! Many thanks Jackie Harrington
If you order the dress and the chemise from stock, it can be delivered by August 26 using UPS express shipping which takes up to 5 business days to deliver.
The accessories need to be manufactured and it will take at least 3 weeks, so it`s not possible to manufacture and deliver the belt, necklace and headpiece by your deadline unfortunately.
Hello Which colour chemise is the model wearing?
Model's wearing Natural color chemise. Welcome!
Would it be possible to order a custom of this dress and receive it by the end of September?
Yes, it`s absolutely possible. :) Manufacturing of this dress takes 25-29 days, shipping time is 16-21 days, so it should arrive by the middle of September or earlier.
Hey, I was wondering if you might be able to show me a sample of the violet linen, like a picture or something. I am trying to figure out how purple your purple is. Much appreciated, Randi
Hi Randi, yes, of course, you may check all linen colors here.
Hello! Could this dress be ordered in stock size but with the accents of the same color as the dress, or should be done by ordering a custom size? Thanks! :)
In-stock dresses come with green accents by default. To get this dress with the accents of different color, please order it in custom size.
Is it possible to have this dress made with the same trim as "Ingrid the Hearthkeeper"?
“The Alchemist's Daughter” dress cannot be made with the Ingrid trim, sorry.
Im looking at the alchemist's daughter gown in the pre-made styles. There are two colorways, one more red, the other burgundy. Do they both have the green sleeves? Can you let me know which sleeve and contrast colors are on the red and the burgundy gown?
Both Wine red and Red burgundy pre-made dresses have Green sleeves and accents.
Hi I've been searching for dress to wear under my wedding coat and I finally found it "the Alchemist's Daughter. Is it possible to have it costume made and shipped by mid October? I would so very much appreciate your help :)
Yes, this is possible. We can use EMS express delivery for guaranteed arrival in time, it takes 10 business days and costs $69 for this dress. If this works for you, please order via the site and add a comment to your order.
Could you wear the Archeress chemise with this dress with out the sleeves?
Yes, technically the Archeress chemise can be worn underneath The Alchemist's Daughter dress without sleeves. Welcome!
hello what specific chemise is the model wearing under the dress so i know what to get if i order the dress. do you have a picture of the dress being worn without the belt and necklace please? thank you sarah
Model wears Medieval Exclusive XIV Century Style Chemise Underdress.
Unfortunately we don't have such pictures, sorry.
Hi - I have just purchased this dress and the chemise and was wondering what are your recommended washing/cleaning instructions?
It's machine washable, use 40°C (104°F) water for wash in gentle mode. Use color safe laundry detergent. Extraction (spinning) in delicate mode to simplify the ironing. Please don't use hot drying and do not pre-soak linen clothes.
Hello again, I was originally thinking of ordering the Archress dress but then seen this one today after getting all of my measurements... alchemist daughter dress seems like it may be more versatile having the sleeves as options. Are the sleeves and the trim options the only difference between the two dresses? Would this be a better option as a first dress? I apologize for all the questions, the dresses just look so similar besides those two points.
Patterns of these dresses are similar, the main differences are the finishing (trim or linen contrasting accents) and the length of the sleeves. “The Alchemist's Daughter” dress is more versatile due to the detachable sleeves.
Hi! Is the chemise necessary or will the dress look strange with out it? Thanks!
We recommend wearing this dress with the chemise, as it has slits on the sleeves and lace along the torso.
hello i have the alchemist daughter dress in wine red with green sleeves, i will be purchasing another in diffrent color very shortly what color would you recommend that will blend well as iam not sure what colors to pick from.
Here are some good color combinations for this dress from our designer:
Dear Sir or Madam, How long is the fixed size gown from shoulder to hemline? I am 5'10", so I am trying to determine if it would be best for me order custom or fixed size. Thank you, Laura
Hi Laura, Our dresses are 148 long so it might be better for you to select custom size option for the dress.
I have a question. Can you send it to Japan?
Hello, yes we ship to Japan.
I just received my dress from you. I love it!!How do I wash and dry it? Thank-you!
It's machine washable, use 40°C (104°F) water for wash in gentle mode. To prevent tarnish an alkaline solution or color safe laundry detergent should be be used. Extraction (spinning) in delicate mode to simplify the ironing. Please don't use hot drying and do not pre-soak linen clothes.
Hello. Can you please tell me if these dresses are custom made to size, or if they are simply standard sizes? Measurements are asked for, but I am not sure if they are used to determine which stock size you will best fit into, or if they are actually used to make the garment. I am not a standard size, so I typically do not properly fit into non custom garments like this. I look forward to hearing back from you. Thanks!
We have both options: "In stock" dresses which comes in regular sizes in accordance to our size chart and "custom size" option for those who need a true tailor sizing. There is price difference but it's not too large
Is it possible to have this beautiful dress with normal long sleeves in the colour of the dress instead of the sleeves you can put off. and how much will that cost?
Yes, this is doable. Price will be the same as listed, simply email us at email@example.com after purchasing.
Hi there, Can I make my order in cm instead of inches? Thanks Andrea
Sure, simply choose the preferred system just above the fields for the measurements.
Your dresses are fabulous. What kind of red is this? Is it a cold red or a warm red? On my screen it looks cold, but this can be incorrect as I found out on numerous occasions. Thanks in advance.
Hi Andrea, it is our wine red linen.
