“Lady of the Lake” Dress

Medieval style noble beaded dress

If you have always dreamt of pure perfectness of a blue medieval dress, but altogether longed for a hint of fantasy and spectacular motifs to enchant your personal style – thus, our Lady of the Lake dress will definitely meet all your expectations!

The first impression of this fantasy piece of clothing, inspired by noble medieval garments, will immediately revive images of fairy castles and treacherous wizards, high-hearted knights and, of course – beautiful ladies! Unearthly beauty wasn’t their only power, though! With inscrutable magic they would easily save King Arthur from certain death and even more – grant him with a legendary sword Excalibur.

Silhouette, dress elements & fabric details

Whenever you decide to become a mysterious enchantress or benefactor of the future King, a gorgeous blue medieval style dress, made of finest pure linen, will become a mighty secret weapon for your, even most daring, heroic feats and adventures. Distinctive and moderately low waistline of the costume creates a true image of a fairy lady, who has just stepped out from the brume of past heroic days. The side lacing allows the garment to fit tightly around the waist and makes it easy to adjust the size. Trim-finished long bell sleeves add the special appeal to the pureness of the classical form fitting silhouette – just imagine them flaring magnificently while dancing or putting spells on love potions!

What truly draws the eye in this garment is a wide scoop neckline, - alluring, but altogether elegant and graceful. An exclusive trim with pomegranate ornament decorates a neckline, upper part of sleeves (on biceps) and a hemline of the dress, while gold galloon on the top part of the sleeves and neckline makes this garb even more prominent. The front bodice is richly embroidered with splash of sparkling beaded rays, all hand-beaded, as it befits a true fairy’s outfit. Unbelievably wide floor-length skirt, with four additional godets, is 7-8 meters (from 7 to 9 yards) in length of the hemline, and grants you almost impossible – exquisitely stylish look and ability to move swiftly and lightly.

Important notes

Please, keep in mind, that although linen is an easy-care and lightweight material, it doesn’t stretch.

The Lady of The Lake dress is available in four color schemes: bright blue, navy blue and emerald green dresses have a blue trim with gold ornament, bugle beads, galloon and lace, as is shown on the photo; while violet one comes with a peach color trim with silver ornament and the other decorative elements – bugle beads, galloon and lace – are also in silver color.

The dress can be purchased from the stock in one of the standard sizes, or custom-made in different colors according to your height and measurements.

Materials:

  • 100% pure linen
  • bugle beads
  • exclusive pomegranate trim
  • galloon

Dress key features:

  • Medieval style noble dress
  • Long bell sleeves
  • Hand-beaded front bodice

Comments

Glen:

Would this dress be available in a cream/off-white colour with gold trim? What about in silk?

ArmStreet team:

The only option we can offer at the moment is milk white cotton with Accolade trim.
Though, the trim doesn`t have a narrow version, so we cannot use it on the sleeves, but the designer suggests making the sleeves of thin marquisette like on the White Swan dress. That should look really pretty. All the changes will cost $50.00 extra.

V.F.:

I ordered this dress after a lot of thought and I'm glad I did. It is incredible and whoever designed it did an excellent job with the sleeves. It adds even more volume to the silhouette and is slimming at the same time. I hesitated between the violet and the blue. It's no secret the blue one is vibrant, and eye-catching. But I went with the violet one with silver trim and I absolutely love it. The violet is darker than I expected ( in a good way ) and the silver accents and purple-peachy trim made this piece very regal and majestic without being too 'loud'. I always order custom size and without fail the Armstreet seamstresses made it a perfect fit. The customer service is also amazing. I've ordered from Armstreet before many years ago and have seen only great improvements since then.

ArmStreet team:

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Feedbacks like yours always inspire us and make us move forward and achieve new horizons! :)

Jo:

I am very much considering this dress for my wedding. I read in comments it can be made in white cotton with button sleeves and using the blue trim from the "White Swan" dress, which would be perfect. Would the bodice stitching be in silver with that combination? Also are the bell sleeves much larger than the White Swan" sleeves? They look similar size.

ArmStreet team:

Thanks for choosing our dress for such a day!
The Lady of the Lake dress can be made of white cotton and with the blue White Swan trim, the the stitching can be made of silver beads. Also, we can make the batiste sleeves with buttons like on the White Swan dress. All the modifications will cost $40.00 extra.

Jenny Sabato:

I don't know how old these comments are. Can you still create your Lady of the Lake dress in the wine red fabric? I would love it for my wedding in March 2017!

ArmStreet team:

The dress can be made of Wine red flax linen, please note that the original Pomegranate trim is available in blue and purple-peachy colors only.
We can make the dress with one of our other trims which have wide and narrow variations, for example Gold Celtic trim.

Carrie Anne:

Hello! I'm looking at ordering your Lady of the Lake gown in a fixed size and paying for the expedited shipping. I live in Atlanta and will be flying out very early on November 4th to Maryland for Faerie Con. 8 days from tomorrow (Wednesday) is November 2nd, so if it took the full 8 days, I'd still get it before I left. Too risky? I hope not! I've been coveting this dress for about two years. I wanted to do a custom size because I'm 5'4, but I don't have the time to, so I figured I could just possibly wear heels or just hold it up when I walk. Thanks!

ArmStreet team:

If you order today or tomorrow, there will be enough time to deliver the dress by November 2. Please mention your deadline in the comments to your order and we`ll send your dress immediately after we receive your order.

Jasmine:

Hello I've been an admirer of your dresses for years. Now I'm needing one for an event next year and was wondering if you'd be able to make the "Lady of the Lake" dress in the Wine Red Faux Linen along with a different gold trim without blue. Thank you for your time.

ArmStreet team:

It is nice to hear from you, always a pleasure to hear that there are people who really enjoy our products! :)
The Lady of the Lake dress can be made in Wine Red with our Celtic Gold trim, Forest Gold trim or Accolade Gold trim.

Courtney:

I know that the ribbon needs to be a certain width, but is there a different ribbon that I could pair with the gold stitching? I like the color of the green fabric but am not particularly fond of the blue ribbon paired with it.

ArmStreet team:

The green dress with gold stitches should look great with our Celtic green&gold trim.
If you like this option, just mention it in the comments to your order, the change of the trim will be no extra.

Dawn Hall:

Wow. First of all, it has only been 23 days since I ordered this dress and I already got it! I didn't expect to get it so early! I just now tried it on - and I am so, so glad I decided to order this custom made from you guys. :) It. Is. Amazing. The measurements are absolutely perfect, especially considering I'm so petite, and on the shorter side. This dress is especially lovely to dance around in, the way everything flows about, and the way the sleeves lay against the gown when simply standing is beautiful. Amazing work - thank you so much! I'll send photos in a couple of months when my local Renn Faire starts. :)

ArmStreet team:

Thank you for an amazing feedback, Dawn! We are so glad the dress fits and you like it!

We`ll be looking forward to seeing your photos! :)

Melissa:

I hate to ask this because I love the sleeves so much but would consider and would you be able to make this dress sleeveless? Or possibly with sleeves that tie and detach at the shoulder? I'd like the thin trim around the bicep or at the hem on the tying end of the sleeve if able to.

ArmStreet team:

It cannot be made w/o the sleeves or with detachable sleeves, but we can make it with short sleeves - the lower edge of the sleeve will be just on the wide trim on biceps. If this works for you, please order via the site and mention the short sleeves in a comment to your order.

Allana:

With the lady of the Lake dress, If I choose the green fabric will the trim be green with gold?

ArmStreet team:

Green dress comes with standard trim, it's blue with gold threads, as shown in the photo in one of the previous comments.

Meg:

Is the violet with silver trim still available?

ArmStreet team:

To date the “Lady of the Lake” dress can be made in violet color with silver accents and special purple-peachy trim, but the lacing will be violet color (not silver). If this works for you, please order via the site and mention your color preferences in a comment to your order.

Jess Farler:

Hello, I was curious if you had the Lady of the Lake pre-made, if so what sizes are available? Thank you so much, best wishes.

ArmStreet team:

To date we have this dress in blue color (as pictured) in size 10 and size 12 only. Please check our size chart here.

Terri Pour-Rastegar:

This is probably one of the most lovely things I've ever worn. I was very nervous about ordering it, even with the custom sizing, as I am 5'10", nearly 240 lbs, with a pretty big belly, breasts, and hips (I'm basically apple shaped and a little short-waisted). I am happy to say that this fit me like a glove, with just enough extra room to be comfortable and allow freedom of movement. What's more, it made me look 2 sizes smaller than I am! It has such a lovely shape, that it forgave all of my lumps and bumps and just slimmed me down. I received my dress in just one month from ordering, even though the site indicates manufacturing time is up to 33 days and shipping takes up to 21 days. Thanks!!! My only complaint is the fabric is not super soft--it's serious linen, which is always a tiny bit scratchy for me. Then again, I'm super-sensitive to anything even slightly scratchy (I cannot even wear cashmere). Perhaps a gentle wash with liquid fabric softener will help. I'm also a little concerned that the side lacing may not hold up--it seems a little lightweight/flimsy. I'll be packing an extra set of laces just in case. Bottom line: I absolutely love this and am so very glad I took a leap of faith and bought it. I cannot wait to wear it to my events. PS: Because I love this so much, I'm also ordering the "Wanderer" Fantasy Dress/Robe.

ArmStreet team:

Many thanks for such a detailed and honest review, Terri! Surely it will help our customers to make their choice!
Linen does have the advantage of getting softer with use and washing. Also, you may use a conditioner for natural fabrics for fabric softening.
Always welcome back to ArmStreet!

Alexandra:

Would I be able to order swatches of several fabrics in which you offer the Lady of the Lake and Green Sleeves dresses? It would really help me if I could see how they look in person. Thank you!

ArmStreet team:

Yes, we make physical fabric samples for free, but we kindly ask you to pay the minimal shipping rate, it's $12.00 (or free with any other purchase). Let us know which colors you'd like to get (up to five colors), and we'll send an invoice for the shipping to your PayPal email.

Susan King:

I ordered this dress in a size 6 but was wondering since I also ordered the Lady Hunter in size 4 if I should change my order for Lady of the Lake to size 4 too. Looking at the sizes I think it might work for me as I continue to loose weight. :)

ArmStreet team:

Ok, no problems. To exchange the “Lady of the Lake” dress size 6 with size 4 - confirmed and corrected.

kaye knoll:

does the lady of the lake dress come in different colors? Or is it being discontinued?

ArmStreet team:

This dress is available for order, it can be made in blue, midnight blue, green, violet color.

Gabby:

Hello. are these dresses pre-made? if so is it possible to ship and have it by next Saturday? is there a possible rush fee?

ArmStreet team:

We have this dress in stock in regular size 4, size 6 and size 8, please check the size chart here - https://armstreet.com/size-chart.html. Please note, they are made for full height 5' 6" (168 cm), should fit fine to the growth 5' 5" - 5' 7" (165-170 cm).

We'll send an invoice for the extra charge for express delivery to your PayPal email. For sending via express mail please provide your cell number (phone # is required for UPS express mail).

Julie:

I love this dress and unfortunately missed the in stock size I need. I am looking at this for my son's wedding on October 10th, 2015. Would it be possible to get this in time?

ArmStreet team:

Yes, you can order the dress in custom size. Please add a comment with the deadline to your order.

Emma Miller:

Is this dress historically accurate?

ArmStreet team:

This dress combines late XIV silhouette and heavy sleeves with decorated folds typical for the end of XV century.

Savannah Marlow:

I love the Lady of the Lake dress. Would it be possible to have it made in white for an extra fee?

ArmStreet team:

We recommend to use white Italian cotton instead of white linen for this dress, as on the "Chess Queen" dress, it looks more elegantly. To order this dress in white cotton, please add a comment to your order, no extra for this.

Annelies:

Thanx you so much for the quick delivery to The Netherlands. And it fits very well! I am so happy with my Lady of the lake dress. I will wear it to a thematic wedding next weekend.

ArmStreet team:

Happy to hear this, thanks for your feedback, Annelies! It would be great if you share some photos!

NURIA:

Hello: Os possible the Lady of the Lake dress in orange colour?

ArmStreet team:

Technically it's possible, simply add a comment to your order. But please note that matching trim is available in blue and purple-peachy colors only.

Jessica Gilbert:

Is the Violet/Silver option still available? I'm thinking of getting this dress this fall.

ArmStreet team:

Yes, violet color version with silver accents is still available, you're welcome!

Melissa:

Would any of the following changes be doable for this dress: Thin trim around the biceps? Button down sleeves? Possibly short sleeves? Blue or Violet dress with white sleeves?

ArmStreet team:

Can be made with narrow trim on the biceps upon request, with short sleeves - the sleeve will end in the trim on the biceps. Color of the flared sleeves (below the biceps) may differ from the main color of the dress; these options are free of charge. With buttoned sleeves (as on the “Forest Princess” dress) - $20 extra.

Natalie cleton:

I was wondering if i could order this dress with forest trim and silver stitching to go with a Brown corset in same style (see previous email on corset). Thank you, Natalie

ArmStreet team:

Cannot be made with the Forest trim, it's too narrow, sorry. We can offer silver Celtic trim instead.

Allison Hall:

Would it be possible to get this dress in white with silver stitching?

ArmStreet team:

We recommend white Italian cotton instead of white linen for this dress, as on Chess Queen dress. To order this dress in white cotton, please add a comment to your order, no extra.

Silver rope and stitching come with purple trim only. Original blue trim has golden threads, thus it cannot be combined with silver rope and stitches. Optionally silver stitching can be combined with some other trims: silver Celtic trim (as here), Lady Rowena red trim, White Swan blue trim.

Ida:

Hi. Can I get the trim and stiches in silver insted of gold?

ArmStreet team:

Silver rope and stitches come with purple trim only.
Blue trim has golden threads, thus it cannot be combined with silver rope and stitches.

Savra:

I really love my "Lady of the Lake" dress! Thank you!

ArmStreet team:

Thanks to beautiful model Savra www.facebook.com/savra.model and Steve Reynolds photography www.steverimages.com we obtained a possibility to illustrate this description with green version photo

Green Medieval Dress "Lady of the Lake"

Polina Kuptsova:
I've just got the dress and it's absolutely amazing. Fit perfectly too. Totally worth the money
ArmStreet team:

Great, thanks for letting us know! And many thanks for your feedback, Polina!

Ríona:
I got the dress today, and WOW, I'm still unable to get over how incredibly gorgeous it is!! <3 I love how well-made and how comfy and flattering it is. Easily the most beautiful dress I've ever owned. It's also so perfect for my Lúthien cosplay, from the blue shade to all the beautiful golden flower trims. 100% happy with this purchase, thank you so much, Armstreet!
ArmStreet team:

We're very pleased that you liked the dress, thanks for your feedback!

Karen Hatten:
How long is the dress? Is it available without the bodice stitching? Is it available without the trim? Thanks! Karen
ArmStreet team:

All our dresses are floor-length, exact length depends on your growth.

It's not available without the bodice stitching or without the trim.

Valar:
Hi! I would like to know if this dress could be done with detachable sleeves, like Sansa or Alchemist Daughter´s dress... Thank you!
ArmStreet team:

This dress cannot be made with detachable sleeves, sorry.

Sarah:
Just got this dress today and I am SO pleased with this purchase! Everything was extremely well-made and well-finished, and it fits like a glove! I'm wearing it for my brother's wedding and my only concern is that it will be prettier than the bride's dress!
ArmStreet team:

Happy to hear this, thanks for your feedback!

Lydia:
I received the dress this week. I is absolutely stunning - thank you very much for the excellent workmanship and competitive price. I will definitely be a repeat customer and will refer others.
ArmStreet team:

Many thanks for your feedback, Lydia! Always welcome to ArmStreet back!

Sandy:

My daughter has a Lady of the Lake but we were unable to find washing instructions for it. What do you recommend for cleaning this dress?

ArmStreet team:

The dresses embroidered with beads and tiny pearls can be washed only manually in a very delicate way and without any extraction. After laundry let the water drain off, then lay out the dress and let it dry in horizontal position.

Jessica Hatch:

I'm interested in the dragonfly necklace shown with the Lady of the Lake dress.

ArmStreet team:

The necklace is not available for order, sorry.

Erika Graham:

I was wondering if you would recommend for/against wearing this dress with a chemise - I like the look of having tighter sleeves underneath, but don't know how the two layers would interact. Thanks!

ArmStreet team:

This dress has enough oversizes for the chemise. You can wear any shirt underneath, as all medieval women did (model's hands are bare in the photos just for appearance).
