Medieval Kirtle Dress

Traditional XVI dress with corset bodice

We've added touch of elegance to the classic kirtle dress. This is a late version of the kirtle with severing wide cross-cut skirt that provides beautiful bell-shaped silhouette and suits any type of women stature. Dress also has corset bodice that shapes dainty waistline and high bust. The low square neckline emphasizes wearer's charms.

In our version fastener is relocated to the back to avoid its occurrence through the fabric of the surcoat but at the same time allowing draw tight the waistline (which is impossible with the help of double side lacing).

We also made a bit more delicate sleeves comparing to the original dress at the painting. And finished them with the decorative yet functional fastening with the help of tiny metal buttons. The contrast fabric of the chemise seen in splits between the buttons provides dress with more detailed and festive look. Balloon sleeve top is attached to the arm-hole with three laces which allow adjustment of the level of sleeve top fixation.

This dress is a part of our Traditional Central Europe Costume.

Please note, that matching chemise is not included, but available in the store.

    Hello, I was planning on ordering the size 8 stock dress in the Kirtle dress and was curious about the length of the bodice from shoulder to waist and/or top of the back to the waist. Thanks

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The length from shoulder to waist for size 8 is:
    - Front length ~19 in (47.5-48 cm);
    - Back length ~ 16.5 in (42 cm).

  • Marjorie 26 of November 2016:

    Could a farthimgale be worn with this dress?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The dress is not intended to be worn with a farthingale. The dress was inspired by a painting by Anton Woensam von Worms and is related to 16 century while farthingales became popular later.
    Still, you are always welcome to experiment, it is not impossible that you will find your own excellent look. :)

  • Bella 27 of November 2015:

    I am wondering if this dress can be made with steel bones instead of plastic?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    We don't yet produce corsets with the steel bones, sorry.

  • Perseida 17 of November 2015:

    Hello! What a gorgeous dress! Which fixed size would you suggest for a 89-90cm chest and a 80cm waist? Will size 4 be too wide around the chest or could be snugged with the lacing at the back? Thanks!

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Thank you! Size 4 dress can be tightened with the lacing at the chest. To get the best fit, we recommend ordering this dress in custom size, it will be made in accordance to your measurements.

  • Charlotta 18 of October 2015:

    Hi Armstreet, Is it possible to wear this corset dress under your "lady of the lake" gown or would the shoulder straps peep out at the neck line?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    This dress is not intended to be worn under the "Lady of the Lake" dress, it can be worn under the Medieval Short-sleeved Dress XVI Century only.

  • Stefanie Cunningham 04 of October 2015:

    Would I be able to tighten the corset bodice lacing myself when I put the dress on, or would I need a friend's help? Thank you

    ArmStreet team answered :

    To tighten the corset mightily you may need outside help.

    Of course the dress may be supplemented by the “Lost Princess” mitts, but please note that the hand warmers are made in more simple, ethnic style.
