“Lady Rowena” Medieval Dress

Renaissance embroidered velvet dress

One of the most beautiful dresses we ever made. It's made of velvet and decorated with exclusive trim, specially designed by ArmStreet and manufactured for this dress. Trimming is embroidered with beads and tiny pearls along neck slit, sleeves and front accents. Also it's additionally decorated with fur.

Velvet is stretchy which makes this dress more slim-fitting. Also there is front lacing which gives us extra flexibility when making it remotely for custom size.

This gown has no historical prototype, however the silhouette and the style of finishing corresponds to the latter half of the XIVth century. As the inspiration of the pattern the fit of the Norman dress from the Greenlandic excavation was taken, which has been dated from that particular period.

It's recommened to be worn over chemise, we have exclusive one chemise which perfectly fits this dress, but you also can use any one you already have if you wish, so chemise is not included.

Available colors and color with trimming combinations are shown above. Original color of the dress presented at photos is “Pale Orchid”.

Color samples are shown below.

Please note, that original “Pale Orchid” color is not available.

Grey Velvet Burgundy Velvet Blue Velvet Pale Orchid Velvet

  • Asha 11 of March 2024:

    No more purple velvet to choose ?

    ArmStreet France:

    Sorry, no more purple velvet for this dress.

  • Oscar 30 of October 2023:

    Hello! Is it possible to get this in White Natural Velvet? Like the fabric that is seen in "The Accolade”.Or just any other white velvet

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, it should be possible, but we need to know your measurements first, because white velvet does not stretch like the velvet that we use for the Rowena dress. Kindly send us your measurements required in the listing description so we can confirm it is possible. 

  • Shawna Watson 18 of April 2021:

    Is it possible to get a comparison of the original pale orchid color vs. the lavender pink. They seem very similar. I want to make sure I love the pink lavender as much as the color in the photos. I am interested in having this as my wedding dress.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello Shawna, we do not have Pale Orchid velvet anymore, unfortunately, but we can tell that pink lavender velvet is a pink color fabric that almost has no grey shade in it. 

  • Iman 05 of August 2019:

    Hello, are payment plans possible for your pieces?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Iman, yes of course. Please contact our support team with the list of the products you would like to order so we could create a personal invoice for you. 

  • Luthien 18 of June 2019:

    Is underwear included in it?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi, Lady Rowena chemise can be purchased separately in our store.  

  • 王上文 18 of June 2019:

    Q1:Does the price include dress and underwear together?Q2:I'm in China,What language should I use to describe my address?Chinese or English? Thanks

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi, Lady Rowena chemise can be purchased separately in our store. Please enter your address in English and leave a comment to your order with the address in Chinese. 

  • ACM 13 of September 2018:

    Is it the current pale lavender that has that lovely green shift to it, or is that the original pale orchid?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi! Pale Orchid velvet is shown on the pics of the listing. Pink lavander color is more "pinkish". 

  • Lorraine seviere 08 of August 2018:

    Hi, could you make the flax underdress any darker colour than white? I would like to wear this for my daughters wedding but white would be inappropriate - very many thanks


    Hi, Lorraine! Yes, we can make it in natural color upon request. Please simply leave this comment to your order at the checkout.

  • Natalia 22 of October 2017:

    What colour is on the Photo Light Grey or Pink Lavendel?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Natalia, Pale Orchid is shown on the pictures of the listing, but it is not available anymore, unfortunately. 

  • T.Evans 14 of October 2017:

    Pleas can you tell me if it is possible to order the headdress worn with this dress? Thank you.


    No, sorry, the headpiece is not produced.

  • Samantha 21 of May 2017:

    Is it possible to get the Lady Rowena dress made without the trim?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Samantha, it is not possible, unfortunately. 

  • Annika 28 of February 2017:

    Hi! I see that this dress can be made out of natural velvet rather than stretch - how much would a custom sized dress in natural velvet, f.ex. blue, cost?

    ArmStreet team:

    The dress can be made of natural velvet for $115.00 extra. If that works for you, you can just place an order through the website and mention in the comments that you`d like the dress to be made of natural velvet. Once we receive the order, we`ll send you a PayPal invoice for the extra.
    Natural velvet is available in deep blue and burgundy, other colours need to be confirmed.

  • Ellen Tarr 31 of December 2016:

    Is it likely they light grey velvet will be available again?

    ArmStreet team:

    At the moment we cannot tell if the fabric will be available again at all, sorry. It is not supplied any more, unfortunately.

  • Lisa Plug 17 of November 2016:

    Do you still make the head piece this model is wearing?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Lisa, it was made once for the photo shoot only. 

  • Christine 13 of November 2016:

    Hi! I've just seen you have added the "pink lavender" as custom choice of velvet... It's possible to see somewhere the fabric with natural and artificial light? I was in love with the pale orchid - It's this choice a little close to it? I would like also know if it's possible to order the dress without trims and fur. Thank you!

    ArmStreet team:

    The Pink Lavender velvet is similar to the Pale Orchid, but it doesn`t have the grey shade.
    The dress can be made w/o fur, but it is not possible to make it w/o trim due to some technical reasons.


  • Shelby 08 of October 2016:

    Is it possible to be made in a less heavy fabric? I live in a very hot area.

    ArmStreet team:

    The dress is available in velvet only, sorry.
    Please check our linen dresses, you`ll find there a lot of interesting items!

  • Denise Boewe 26 of September 2016:

    Hello, Can this dress be made in wool? Thank you! Denise

    ArmStreet team:

    The dress cannot be made of wool, sorry.

  • Vikki Merritt 15 of July 2016:

    I am looking at your Lady Rowena dress in the pale orchid color. It states that it is not available in that color any longer. I would love to have that color or something close to it. What options would I have other then what I see on this page? I need it for my daughters wedding on March 11 2017.

    ArmStreet team:

    Unfortunately now we can offer you only those colors which you can see on our webpage. Grey velvet looks as delicate as Pale Orchid one and Burgundy velvet looks very noble too!

  • Solaria 10 of June 2016:

    Is it possible to make this dress in a shorter length (knee length)?

    ArmStreet team:

    Sorry, unfortunately this dress cannot be made of knee length.

  • Deidre arzy 21 of January 2016:

    I love this dress but don't care for off the shoulder. Can this be made to sit on the shoulder enough to cover bra straps?

    ArmStreet team:

    Yes, to prevent falling off the shoulders, we recommend to measure the length of your shoulder (shoulder length from neck to external point of the shoulder, #3 in our chart) and shoulders breadth from the back, and add these measurements in a comment to your order.

  • jen 09 of November 2015:

    Hi there could this be done in blue, with blue trim and blue on chemise but without the fur ?

    ArmStreet team:

    This dress can be made in blue with blue trim and without fur. The chemise cannot be made in blue, white is the only option, sorry.

  • jen 09 of November 2015:

    Also could it be done in time for wedding on feb 1st ?

    ArmStreet team:

    Of course, we have enought time for manufacturing and shipping. Please be sure to mention your deadline in a comment to your order.

  • Whitney 21 of May 2015:

    Hi there! I was wondering if the Rowena gown can be made from flax linen instead of velvet. Thank you!

    ArmStreet team:

    Sorry, this dress cannot be made of flax linen.

  • Jessica Beck 12 of February 2015:

    Hello. I am interested in your pieces. My fiance and I would love to order from you for our Renaissance Faire wedding. I have 2 questions: 1) For the “Knight of the West” men's tunic, I see that you are currently out of stock on the black with gold trim. When will you have more in stock? 2) For the Lady Rowena dress, the pale orchid velvet is not available, but will you have it available in the future? If not, is there a color similar to that which I can order? I certainly wouldn't mind paying extra for the custom order, as long as it is reasonable. Thank you, and I look forward to your response. Kind Regards, Jessica Beck

    ArmStreet team:

    Unfortunately there is no information whether the gold brocade will be available ever again. Production of the "pale orchid" color velvet is stopped, sorry. To date the dress is available in three colors only: grey, burgundy and blue.

  • Kirsten Thomsen 08 of October 2014:

    I am totally crazy about your dresses, and will be ordering soon. :) Just wanted to ask: is it possible to order this dress in white velvet, so that I can get married in it? It is so beautiful, and I am so happy that I found your webste!! Thank you!

    ArmStreet team:

    Thanks! Yes, this dress can be made out of natural velvet in white color for some extra. Please contact us at contact@armstreet.com for more details.

  • Torunn Meyer 07 of August 2014:

    Will you get the dress avaliable in pale orchid later. IT would be perfekt for a my wedding .

    ArmStreet team:

    Pale Orchid velvet is no longer produced, sorry. We keep making this model, but in other colors which are available at the moment.

  • Katarzyna 30 of May 2014:

    Is it possible, to have it in white or ecru colour ?

    ArmStreet team:

    Can be made out of natural velvet in white color for some extra. Please contact us at contact@armstreet.com for more details.

  • Lindsey 26 of January 2014:

    Hello, I'm contemplating this dress for my wedding. Could it be made in white silk with a red silk underdress? Thank you.

    ArmStreet team:

    Can be made out of high quality Italian satin for $200 extra per one item ($400 extra per dress and chemise). Natural silk is too thin, it's rather shrinkable and doesn't keep the shape. Thus, it's not the best choice for a wedding.

  • Frida 24 of November 2013:

    This is absolutely stunning, but I have a question about the small fur details. Is it real, and if so, from what type of animal? Thanks in advance.

    ArmStreet team:

    Sleeves are trimmed with dyed polar fox fur.

  • Tèa Clark 18 of July 2013:

    When will it become availible in the original colour?

    ArmStreet team:

    Unfortunately there is no information if we'll get stretchy velvet in "pale orchid" color again.

  • Ceci 17 of March 2012:

    Hi there, is it possible that you could make it in green velvet?

    ArmStreet team:

    Can be made out of natural velvet in green color for some extra. Please contact us at contact@armstreet.com for more details.

    Hello, is this dress able to be made using white velvet for the main body?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello Virginia, yes, we have white velvet for this dress. You are welcome to place the order for any color available and leave a comment to your order that white color is required. 

  • Jessica Matyas 30 of March 2019:

    My dress is absolutely beautiful and it fits perfectly. When I ordered it, I requested custom sleeves. They came up with the perfect sleeve design to compliment the dress. The detailing on the dress is amazing. I am so pleased with my purchase.

  • Diana McCaffrey 12 of January 2019:

    I have purchased several items from Armstreet, including gowns, chemises, bodices, jewelry, belts, men’s shirts and tunics. Every single item was artfully made with wonderful quality materials, including linen, velvets, brass and leather. The photos of Armstreet attire are works of art. How delightful to be able to say that the clothing appears just as beautiful in reality. Olga at Armstreet was extraordinarily helpful with any questions, and answered my queries within a day. As a member of a Medieval troubadour group, I know we will look amazing, and hope our ballads sound as good as we look! I will be ordering from Armstreet in the future. Thank you to everyone there. Your devotion to real clothing that evokes another time shines bright.

  • uebelheather 25 of August 2017:

    In short- PERFECT. It's difficult to write a concise review when I'm so pleased with everything. First off, incredible customer service. I was able to get all the information I needed quickly, and all my questions (there were many) were answered in clear and helpful terms. The actual process went exactly as long as they told me it would (which was awesome because I had a very short timeframe I could work with!) and honestly came a few days early. The dress itself is gorgeous, I don't know enough industry terms to explain how great the quality is. The fit was perfect as well. My friend and I were nervous to spend the money but the dress and the process were worth every penny! It should be noted that we also purchased the matching chemise/underdress. Thank you so much, ArmStreet! <3

  • Alpine Price 05 of January 2017:

    Custom made to PERFECTION!!!!! Extremely high quality work. Arrived sooner than expected. Customer Service delightful to work with. Look forward to whatever my next custom order may be.

  • Ana Silva 29 of May 2014:

    The dress is gorgeous, and well worth the price -- I bought mine on impulse but forgo any regret when I got my hands on it. The detail is incredible, the sewing amazing, and the design beautiful. It arrived incredibly fast, and I will definitely buy from this shop again.

  • Victoria 24 of February 2014:

    Absolute quality in the finish of Lady Rowena dress, so well made! I know about finish and tailoring and their work is well done. Stunning sheen on the velvet, and perfect fit. Quality of materials in both the Lady Rowena dress and the matching chemise is outstanding. Don't waste time or money on the other amateur retailers, it's worth the extra to definitely deal with the Armstreet professionals if you want satisfaction! Postage here to Australia was in good time, and customer service has been friendly and helpful.

    ArmStreet team:

    Wow, thank you for such a great feedback! Will be glad to hear from you again!

  • mintominto82 07 of December 2013:

    Ordered in red velvet. I was very surprised when I opened the package - it is made from proper velvet thus has some weight. Everything is very well sewn, including trims and furs. I cannot wait till I wear to Christmas costume party! Just amazing

  • Christine en Erwin Gijzen 01 of October 2013:

    The blue was darker than expected, but that made it look even more regal. The dress was stunning, the craftsmanship superb and the customer support beyond awesome. Thanks to all people at Armstreet!

  • Elizabeth Ross 07 of January 2013:

    I ordered the Lady Rowena dress in red to use as my wedding dress. I was very impressed by the quality, and the accuracy, so I also encouraged the rest of my guests for our (very small) wedding to order from ArmStreet. The wedding took place 31 October, 2012 at Borthwick Castle in Scotland, and these fantastic costumes helped to make the day just incredible, lending a beautiful touch of authenticity to our medieval handfasting.

    ArmStreet team:

    Thank you! We are very pleased that our costumes helped you to create medieval mood at such an important event!

  • Belinda Park 11 of May 2012:

    it's so gorgeous! You have a fantastic team of designers! Great work!

  • Gina Carson 13 of January 2012:

    Love that side lacing!! And those beautiful SLEEVES!
