Medieval Dress Tunic “Forest Princess”
Fantasy linen women's dress
Now and always in a big ancient forest, there lives a charming princess, who spends her days talking to the trees and streams. She’s walking silently beneath the leaves on her way into your runtime, accompanied by her loyal entourage. A young traveler must be aware of meeting this green-eyed girl in a flowy dress while making his path through the woods.
The “Forest Princess” dress was one of the first featured ArmStreet’s fairy tale fashion items which made us very proud at that time. Let’s see what it brings! The elegant silhouette rings a bell for the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance, though it certainly has a fantastic origin. Exquisite medieval accouterments include tight back lacing, long sleeves supplied with countless whimsical buttons and high ‘empire’ waistline, accentuated with elegant braid to emphasize the bust. The hem of a full skirt with two additional gores is embellished with the same braid.
The pictured dress is made of bright green flax, which perfectly blends with the lush summer greens. Made of 100% natural flax linen, which keeps the body cool and dry, it becomes a must-have addition to a summer wardrobe. Hot weather requires a relaxed and laid-back vibe, and light fabric of authentic breathable structure is essential when the temperatures start to rise. The available linen colors range from naturals to brights and darks, and the variety of matching gold and silver trims allows to capture every look whether it be medieval, fantasy or gothic. Forest fairies are unpredictable, if once you lose track of the time - you'll be bewitched by a touch of nature. Then the enchantress won't let you out of her magic forest!
Choose one of the standard sizes, and make light size adjustments with the lacing, or opt for custom size to get cut-to-measure dress. But please note, if the difference between your bust and waist circumferences exceeds 9 13/16 in (25 cm), the dress won't fit as tightly as shown in the pictures.
To further emphasize the dignity of the figure, the dress can be supplemented with a corset belt or with a sophisticated overcoat. The dress will make a fantastic gift for your significant other and for yourself, it's perfect to replenish any LARPer’s collection or to start off a new one fresh and inspired.

My husband bought me this dress and I wore it for our 10th wedding anniversay vow renewals. I've always considered myself a 'forest maiden' and this dress was the perfect item to finally ensure that! It is an incredibly beautiful and wonderfully well made dress and something I will wear often and even pass onto my daughters for them to wear. Thank you!
Stefanie 15 of May 2020:
This is the first thing I ever bought from Armstreet, and it's still one of my favorite dresses. Flattering, beautiful, easy to move around in, and even easy to wash. Highly recommended!
Raquel 12 of May 2020:
I bought this dress along with the corset belt that I cannot seem to find anywhere on the site now (which is a pity because it was a fine piece, but it also makes me feel like I have something unique). All I can say is the dress is gorgeous. I ordered a custom one in green and I must say it looks marvellous. The dress is well made and the details are lovely. I'm totally in love with the rose buttons. Even if it's more expensive, having Armstreet products custom tailored is well worth it, trust me ;)

I purchased this dress and I love it! What is the best way to clean this dress?ArmStreet team:
Thank you, Alison! Use 40°C (104°F) water for wash in gentle/delicate mode. To prevent tarnish an alkaline solution or color safe laundry detergent should be be used. Extraction (spinning) in gentle/delicate mode to simplify the ironing. Please don't use hot drying and do not pre-soak linen clothes.

Is there a corset that would pair well with this?
Yes, you may check it here.
Can this be shipped to the u.s.?
Yes, of course :)
This dress is gorgeous! I'm looking for a dress to wear for a medieval themed wedding at the of October. Is it possible for this dress to be made with bell sleeves?
Hi Katie, yes, it is possible.
I am looking to order this dress to use as a lady in waiting at a medieval festival. I can not have gold or silver thread or trim. Can I order the dress with non-metallic trim? If so, what options are available? Also, I am plus sized. Is that extra?
Dear Lanell, please check all our trims here and let us know which one you like. No extra charge for the plus size.
Would it be possible to have this dress with trim on the neckline instead of under the bust? Thank you in advance
Hi Christine, yes, we can add the trim on the neckline, but we cannot remove it from under the bust, sorry.
Is it possible to get this dress without button-up sleeves?
The dress cannot be made with buttoned sleeves, sorry. Please check our Chess Queen dress, you may like it.
Is the silver celtic ribbon on a black or navy background? Thanks.
The dress from stock is made of green linen with gold Forest trim. If you order a custom made dress, it can be made with silver Celtic trim on any of the colours, just choose the colour and the trim and enter your measurements.
What is the background color of the silver Celtic trim and the silver forest trim (black or dark blue?)
The background on those trims is black.
I am looking at several of your dresses and trying to decide which one I like best, they are all so lovely. Do you charge extra to make the Forest Princess dress in wine red and if so, how much please?
Custom size “Forest Princess” dress can be made in wine red, no extra for this.
To place your order, switch to the "Custom size" tab in the description of the item, click "Add to cart", then "Go to cart". Please tick the preferred color of the dress and trim, then fill in your measurements in the order form and click "Checkout".
If I got this dress in the green to go with the coat in the picture... What colors besides black would look good on the coat with this green dress?
Green dress with gold trim looks good with brown overcoat, green dress with silver trim - the overcoat should look good in midnight blue color.
Hello, is it possible to custom order this with short sleeves? I would wish to pair this with a chemise. Thank you in advance.
Optionally can be made with short sleeves, simply add a comment to your order. Price will be the same as listed.
Do you all have rush delivery on the Forest Princess Dress in stock sizes?? And do the dresses run true to size - or a bit larger or smaller than regular sizes listed??
Dear Christine, you are welcome to select express shipping at the checkout. Our size chart is different from the standard one, kindly contact our support team for assistance with the size.
Does this item cost extra to be trimmed in silver? Also, do you provide discounts for orders for multiple of the same dress?

We provide combined shipping - delivery of each subsequent item in your cart costs less. Simply add your items to cart, and shipping will be combined automatically.
Hi! Is it possible to order this dress with silver/gold trimmings on the neck area aswell? This dress is so beautiful!
Can be made with trim on the neckline for $10 extra, simply add a comment to your order.
I love my dress, but am unsure how to wash it. Should this dress be dry cleaned or hand washed?
It's machine washable, here is our clothing care guide.
Hi, One last question. I decided on the "Forest Princess" dress, but I don't see where I can order the dress in small. All is see are the fields where I input my measurements. How do I order the "Forest Princess" dress in a small size with the navy blue linen? I have tried on my friend's dress and it fit perfectly.
Fixed size dresses are available in green colour only. To get it in blue, you can order it in custom size.
- If I were to order this dress with silver trimmings, would the buttons be silver as well, or still gold? - Is it allowed to send in measurements of the arm length as well? Sleeves are always too long for me. The dress looks lovely!
This dress with silver trim comes with silver buttons.
Sure, you can email us any additional measurements after purchasing.
I would like also know is it bossible to buy both overcoat and forest princess corset belt with this dress? I mean that are they all three matching together as well as only dress and overcoat..
Dear Essi, the dress and overcoat can be purchased together here. The belt should be purchased separately.
I have a question regarding the fixed sizes. My measurements are: bust-37, waist-32, hips-44, full height-63 inches. Will the lacing accomodate me and if so, what size?
Please note, that all fixed size items (women's) are made for full height 5' 6" (168 cm), should fit fine to the growth 5' 5" – 5' 7" (165–170 cm).
We recommend to order the dress in custom size.
it is possible to order custom size , and use cm instead of inches.
Sure, click "custom size" tab and choose your preferred measurement units (inches or centimeters) in the order form.
Can you get this dress in red?
Yes, can be made in "wine red" color.
I was curious why you ask only for the bicep and wrist circumference, but not for the arm length. I am 5'9", and I don't know if my arm length would be any different than that of a 5'5" person. How do you gauge this when manufacturing the gown?
Our experienced seamstresses are able to calculate the length of your arms using your full height and other measurements. Or you can specify your arm length (measured from external point of the shoulder to wrist measured along external side) in a comment to your order.
Hi! I was wondering if the "natural" color of this dress is more grey or white or beige? //Sabina
It's the color of unbleached linen. Here is a tunic made in natural color, and bigger sample:
Could you wear these dresses as an everyday item? If so I may order one.
Of course, many of our customers buy our clothes for everyday wear. You're welcome!
Hello! This forest princess dress is my dream dec 21 wedding dress. I am trying to loose ten ponds by then. What size to you recomend i order? Right now I am 5'7 and a half and weigh 150. As a redhead I have overdone green in my life. Do you have any photos of the blue or red? India silverthorne
We recommend ordering the dress after the weight loss/gain. Pay attention to the dresses with side lacing and sleeves with lacing - they allow to make size adjustments easily.
Usually we make photo shoots of our items in one basic color only, so there are no pictures of this dress in different colors, sorry.
