“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.

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.
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.
Hello, are payment plans possible for your pieces?
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.
Is underwear included in it?
Hi, Lady Rowena chemise can be purchased separately in our store.
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
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.
Is it the current pale lavender that has that lovely green shift to it, or is that the original pale orchid?
Hi! Pale Orchid velvet is shown on the pics of the listing. Pink lavander color is more "pinkish".
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.
What colour is on the Photo Light Grey or Pink Lavendel?
Hi Natalia, Pale Orchid is shown on the pictures of the listing, but it is not available anymore, unfortunately.
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.
Is it possible to get the Lady Rowena dress made without the trim?
Hi Samantha, it is not possible, unfortunately.
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?
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.
Is it likely they light grey velvet will be available again?
At the moment we cannot tell if the fabric will be available again at all, sorry. It is not supplied any more, unfortunately.
Do you still make the head piece this model is wearing?
Hi Lisa, it was made once for the photo shoot only.
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!
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.
Is it possible to be made in a less heavy fabric? I live in a very hot area.
The dress is available in velvet only, sorry.
Please check our linen dresses, you`ll find there a lot of interesting items!
Hello, Can this dress be made in wool? Thank you! Denise
The dress cannot be made of wool, sorry.
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.
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!
Is it possible to make this dress in a shorter length (knee length)?
Sorry, unfortunately this dress cannot be made of knee length.
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?
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.
Hi there could this be done in blue, with blue trim and blue on chemise but without the fur ?
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.
Also could it be done in time for wedding on feb 1st ?
Of course, we have enought time for manufacturing and shipping. Please be sure to mention your deadline in a comment to your order.
Is it possible to do a custom trim rather than blue or red?
Optionally can be made with silver, gold or green-gold Celtic trim, “Green Sleeves” trim, “Lady Hunter” trim, blue or purple-peachy “Lady of the Lake” trim for some extra.
Hi there! I was wondering if the Rowena gown can be made from flax linen instead of velvet. Thank you!
Sorry, this dress cannot be made of flax linen.
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
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.
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!
Thanks! Yes, this dress can be made out of natural velvet in white color for some extra. Please contact us at email@example.com for more details.
Will you get the dress avaliable in pale orchid later. IT would be perfekt for a my wedding .
Pale Orchid velvet is no longer produced, sorry. We keep making this model, but in other colors which are available at the moment.
Is it possible, to have it in white or ecru colour ?
Can be made out of natural velvet in white color for some extra. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Hello, I'm contemplating this dress for my wedding. Could it be made in white silk with a red silk underdress? Thank you.
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.
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.
Sleeves are trimmed with dyed polar fox fur.
When will it become availible in the original colour?
Unfortunately there is no information if we'll get stretchy velvet in "pale orchid" color again.
Hi there, is it possible that you could make it in green velvet?
Can be made out of natural velvet in green color for some extra. Please contact us at email@example.com for more details.
