This dress is our version of European medieval ladies casual costume.
I want to say few words about this excellent fabric which is one of our favorite. Flax linen is 100% natural, looks very authentic and gives great heat protection; it's light and dense at the same time. The design looks simple, but it's very well thought-out and looks great on almost any figure. There is long lacing along back and sleeves.
Please note, the dress of size 6, 8, 10, 12 has the side bust darts for better shaping. Also, if the difference between your bust and waist circumferences exceeds 9 13/16 in (25 cm), the dress won't fit tightly.
You can order this dress complete with skirt and chaperone.
Please note, the belt is not included.

Can this be made with short sleeves
Hello, this dress cannot be made with short sleeves, unfortunately.
Can this dress and lacing be made with the same cloth as the Wanderer dress (unbleached canvas-like linen)?
Hello Celia, it is not possible, unfortunately.
I need this one but with custom measurements and the option does not appear
Hello Rene, please select custom size option over the dress title.
Ordered this in basic black for a choir event. I'd like to order it in violet with trim along the neck and hem line. Are there options for doing so?
Hello, we would like to offer you Secret Garden instead. It comes with trim and it can be made in violet linen.
I love the color and cut. As always such beautiful garb! I'm over the moon.
hi! i´ve ordered you a dress 1 month ago and i´m very happy with it. Now i want to order a new dress for mi daughter, but i don´t know where i have to lokk at because the size charts aren´t for dresses, only for costumes. she´s 172 cm but she ´s thin and at least i want to know how many days does it take to arrive to spain because we need it before 11th of november. thanks xxx
Dear Ostaixka, please check our size chart for dresses here: https://armstreet.com/size-chart.html We can help you choose the rigth size if you send us your bust and waist circumference, please.
Incredibly pleased with this purchase. If you are used to American sizes, make sure to use their sizing guide. It fits just right and I am so excited to wear it.
Thank you for your feedback! We use our own Size Chart for our clothes.
How adjustable is the waist on this dress? Most of my measurements would fit a size 6 but my waist is a bit smaller (31-32in) - should I get a custom size or would a 6 fit?
Dear Katherine, please send us your bust and waist circumference so we could advise on the size.
So concerned this dress is going to be really scratchy to wear
Dear Nancy, linen is not scratchy.
Hi! I find this dress wonderful so I wanted to ask if for my height it would be ok. I’m 5’3. Moreover I’m curious about the main differences between this dress and the Bridesmaid “Secret Garden” one. Thank you in advance.
Dear Alice, our pre-made dresses fit the height of 5' 5" so it might be a little too long for you. You are welcome to select custom size for the dress and it will be hemmed. Red Elise dress and Secret Garden dresses have different patterns.
Hello! I’m wondering if this dress would traditionally be worn over a chamise and if so, which one from your line would work best with it. Thank you!
Hi Evie, this dress should be worn without any chemise. However, if you would like to wear it with the underdress chemise, then Medieval Flax Linen Chemise should work.
Hello! Would it be possible to get different coloured cords for the lacing? The black one would go best with my currently owned wear, though I fear the black cords may not show too much!
Hi Bri, yes it is possible. Please let us know which color do you prefer.
Am I able to ride a horse in this dress ? I have several Mounted Archery Demos coming up this summer and would like a beautiful dress to wear while galloping and shooting:)
Dear Annie, the width of the skirt of this dress is not enough for horse riding, but we can offer you Princess in Exile dress instead (with a very wide skirt).
Hi, I am 5”11 and just wondering if that would be too tall for this dress in the standard sizes. I am in Australia and need it by early July.
Hi Helena, yes the pre-made dress will be about 5 inches short. The sleeves will be short as well. We recommend to order custom size dress in this case. Please simply leave a comment to your order with the date when the dress is needed.
I want to order this dress in custom size. If I order it with express shipping will it arrive before April 14? I want to be able to wear it for the Renaissance fair coming up.
Dear Paola, yes it is possible if the order is placed before April 1st. Rush order costs 10% extra. Please leave a comment to your order with the deadline and I will send you the invoice for the extra cost.
Hi, I really love this dress but I'm not sure about sizing. I'm a 32" bust and 27.5" waist. The max. waist for the size 0 is 27.5", so would I be better going for a size 2?
Dear Roisín, size 0 should fit you nicely. It can be adjusted on the waist with the help of the side lacing.
Hi I’m interested in purchasing 2 pieces, can shipping be combined for multiple pieces?
Hi Kelly, yes shipping cost is combined/reduced automatically at the checkout when you add more than 1 product to your cart.
Hi there I was wondering how much it would be for two different dresses. 1. Greed red Elise in 0 or 2 with wide greensleeves trim on neck and narrow on sleeves and bottom or 2. Green red Elise size 0 or 2 with either wide blue Viking or Ingrid on neck and narrow on sleeves with either narrow or wide on the base hem. I’m wondering which you think would look better. I love your designs and am wearing the dress to a medieval festival in which I am playing outside in an Irish band, so Celtic is good and the dress could be worn for other occasions. Many thanks Georgette.
Hi Georgette, any of these dress will cost $189. They both will look nice. You may simply order custom size dress and we will send you the invoice for the price difference for the customization.
Hello, what chemise do you recommend wearing under this dress - does it need one? Thank you
Hi Lorena! This dress can be worn without any chemise.
Hi! Is the only difference between this dress and the Fairy Tale dress the embroidery?
Hi Ariel! Yes, it is.
Are the arm ties on the outside or inside of the arm?
Hi Janessa! The arm lacing is situated on the inside of the sleeve.
Is the arm length the same for all the sizes?
Hi Janessa! The sleeve length depends on the size of the dress.
Hello! I'm a size 10 in armstreet because of my arms (15" bicep), but all my other measurements match an 8. If I were to purchase this in an 8, is there enough room in the sleeves for some extra give with the lacing? Thank you!
Hi Elena! Yes, sleeve lacing on this dress gives at least 4 inches room, so it is better to order size 8 in this case.
Hello, before purchasing I would like the know more about the fabric and stitching. It is likely to rub and irritate skin when being worn all day? Thank you
Hi Emily! Linen is a very soft and light material. It does not rub or irritate skin. Natural linen is perfect for the summer season. After each washing it gets softer .
Just wondering what currency I am seeing the prices listed as? Is it in USD?
Hi Nicole, all prices on our website are listed in USD.
Hello, I would like to order a custom size wine red flax linen Red Elise, but I have a few questions. Do you need the arm length measurement? I measured and mine is 23 in. Also, my height is 5'4 and the the length of the dress seems to be quite long according to the standard information. I measured myself from the shoulder to my ankle and the length was 50 in. Is there a way to make it for my height without it trailing? And finally, does the flax linen material wrinkle? Would it need a lot of ironing? and if so, would it be possible to make the dress in cotton? Thanks you so very much and I hope to be able to order the dress this week! I have the other measurements ready. Thanks again!
We can make the dress in custom size for you and adjust the dress length. Please simply place the order for the custom dress and send us your measurements in the order form. Arm length is not needed. Linen material wrinkles a lot so cotton might be better for you. We do not have red cotton color but we do have burgundy color which is basically dark red. Please simply leave a comment to your order that burgundy cotton is required instead of red linen.
I live in Finland, is it possible to have a dress custom made and sent here in Finland? And how much does the dress and shipping cost in euros can you tell?
Sure we can make custom size clothes according to the measurements provided and send it to Finland. Sorry, our prices are listed in USD. Total amount (incl. shipping) is calculated automatically when you add all items to your cart at the checkout.
I love the simplicity of the design. So many color choices for the anniversary made it a must buy :) I'm very happy with my latest outfit that I've gotten from Armstreet.
Hi Jackie!Thanks so much for your feedback!
What is the color of the dress the girl is wearing that's carrying the peonies?
It is our burgundy linen color
Why do you not make larger sizes?
Please check our size chart carefully, our sizes are quite different from US, UK and EU systems. Also, the dress can be ordered in custom size - it will be made according to your measurements then.
Thanks again to Armstreet for accommodating me for the "Archeress" tunic. Would I be able to purchase the "Red Elise" tunic in midnight flax customized? Also, would I be able to get elbow length sleeves? Thanks for your consideration.
Hi Anne, thank you for your feedback!
The dress can be made for your measurements in Midnight blue, but unfortunately, we cannot change the length of the sleeves, sorry.
Is it possible to do this dress in Bright White Linen?
Technically it is possible, but we strongly don`t recommend that as the White linen is quite transparent and the dress will look like an undertunic, basically. The look will be similar to this chemise.
Is it possible to get fabric swatches? I'm having a hard time picking between a few different colors
Hi Elyssa! Yes, we can send you up to 5 fabric swatches for free, you`ll only need to pay for the shipping. Please let me know which colors you`d like to get and which shipping method you prefer and I`ll help you to proceed.
The Elise dress looks similar to the bridesmaids dress. Could you please tell me how they differ?
Hi Jennifer! The dresses have the same cut, but the Bridesmaids dress has trim on the sleeves and hem and this one doesn`t.
Hello, a few questions: Is there much difference in the cut of Red Elise and the secret garden dresses? I am very tall with long arms, where would I put my arm measurement for the custom order? Also if I want to ship to Canada would I be looking at the expedited shipping or could I do standard? Thank you, I love your product!
Hi Ariel! There is no difference in the cut for these two models. The difference is that the Bridesmaids dress has trim on the sleeves and hem and this one doesn`t. You can mention your arm length in the comment to your order. You can choose any of the shipping methods, but please note that regular shipping to Canada might take a bit longer than 21 days and tracking number doesn't work properly (basing on our previous experience with Canadian post). Express shipping will be very fast and reliable, on the other hand. But it`s up to you. Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions!
What is the circumference of the sleeves? (Bicep) I'm a size 2 according to your chart but I always have problems with sleeves.
Hi JJ! The biceps of the dress in size 2 is 13 in (33cm).
Hi I love this dress but I was wondering if you had an estimate is shipping time to Australia?
Hi Sal! Regular shipping normally takes 3 weeks, but can take a bit longer sometimes. Express shipping takes up to 5 business days. Please note, if you order custom size items, there is also certain manufacturing time.
I own two Red Elise dresses. I'm just wondering when I wash my dresses can I leave the laces in or do I need to take them out?
Hello Carolyn! The laces should be removed before washing. You can find our care guide right here.
I would like the dress in orange that is called Elise. Also, I would like the apron and chaperone in white. I understand they are available in stock. I wear a medium/size 10 in USA sizes. Measurements provided seem different Why? I need these three pieces no later than Friday, June 16. I will be paying with an American Express credit card after I hear from you.
Hello Julie! Our size chart is indeed different from European, UK and US size systems. To determine the right size, please take measurements as shown here and choose your size using the appropriate size chart.
What length does 'Red Elise' come in for an in stock size? 6 in particular. Thanks.
Fixed size dresses are 58" (148 cm) long in sizes 0–8 and 59" (150 cm) in sizes 10–12.
hello, i was wondering if your dresses run large? im normally a size 8 but according to your size guide im between a two and a four, should i order my regular dress size or size down according to your guide? thank you, Margo.
Our sizes are different from US, EU and UK systems, so please order the size which should fit you according to our size chart, not the size you are wearing usually as they are very different.
Hi, I would like to order this dress, but I need it to arrive (U.S. address) by March 27th. I am fine with paying for expedited shipping. Is that possible? Thanks! -Jenna
You can order a fixed sized dress from stock, then it will be shipped right away, just choose the desired colour, size and mention your deadline in the comments to your order.
If you need a custom sized dress, please choose express shipping (can be chosen in your cart) and mention your deadline in the comments to your order. Then we`ll rush manufacturing a little if needed.
Can this dress be made to the shin instead of full-length?
This modification should be possible, just let us know the desired overall length (from the shoulder seam to the bottom hem) in the comments to your order.
Hi just read excellent comments here. I am a 12/14 Uk size. Would 4 be best? I would like to have it by christmas, it this possible? Sandra
Yes, size 4 should fit you best.Shipping normally takes 16-21 days, if you order now, the dress should be delivered by Christmas. Also, you can choose express shipping, it takes 5-8 days only.
Absolutely love all of your dresses with the lacing like this. I saw in an answer you gave above that you can make the dress in cotton instead of linen. For the event I am attending, cotton is much more desirable, but I was wondering if there is any cost difference and if it can still be made in that gorgeous midnight blue. Thanks so much for your time! Keep up the incredible work :)
Yes, the dress can be made of cotton, simply add a comment to your order. Price will be the same as listed. Please note, it will have two additional seams along the dress - in front and on the back.The Dark blue cotton is similar in colour to the Midnight blue linen.
I am a UK size 10 what size would I need to order?
Please check our size chart. You can also email us your chest and waist measurements and we will help you to determine the right size.
I was wondering what the belt is that the model is wearing. Do you sell it? Thanks!
The belt from pictures is not available for order, sorry. We can offer you Exclusive Etched Women's Brass Belt or Medieval German Women's Belt with Brass Casting Accents.
The tunic "Red Elise" is it customary to be worn by itself? And can it have another tunic underneath it? For instance could you put the tunic "Sunshine Janet" Underneath it?
The tunic Red Elise is meant to be worn by itself. Both tunics have lacings on the back and on the sleeves and they both actually go as full-fledged dresses.
I am looking for a dress for a photoshoot and the theme is Elaine of Ascolat Lady of Shalott all based on the book "Song of the Sparrow" by Lisa Ann Sandell. The dress described is wool vermilion gown. Any suggestions? Hope this will not be a too difficult question. Thank you again.
There are two woolen dresses which would be great for this topic: Medieval Fantasy Woolen Dress “Red Sleeves” or its analog which goes without the belt and has less beading embroidery - Medieval Woolen Dress “Green Sleeves”.
How long would shipping to Michigan take?
Normally shipping takes 16-21 days. We can also offer UPS express shipping which takes 5 business days for some extra.
Hi I just like to ask which stock size may suit me better 8 or 6 as Im a bit bustier 104cm and broad shouldered but waist 89cm. Thanks
According to our size chart, size 6 will fit you just well! Still, if you are afraid that your shoulders are broad and fixed size can be small, we can offer you custom size dress, which will be made specially for you according to all your measurements.
Good morning. I love the simplicity of this dress but I am wondering if you are able to add a beautiful trim to it at all? Possibly around the neck and sleeves? Maybe the bottom too. I do not know if this is possible or how much it would cost. I look forward to hearing from you. With very best wishes Tonia
Hello Tonia! Optionally this dress can be made with trim for some extra, the trim can be placed on the neckline, wrists and along the bottom of the dress. Please specify which trim you like, and we'll estimate the price.
Hi, This dress is beautiful. Does it come in burgundy? I can't tell from the swatches on the site. Also, are there any photos of the back? Thank you.
Yes, this dress is available in burgundy in stock in sizes 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12. Also it can be made in burgundy color in custom size.
All existing photos of the Red Elise dress are available on the website. You can also see the photos of the Sunshine Janet dress, it has the same cut.
Hi, can the belt in the photo be purchased in this website too?
The belt from pictures is not available for order, sorry. We can offer the Lost Princess belt or the Archeress belt instead.
Hello! I am shopping in advance for my daughter's Halloween costume this year, & I happened upon your web site. My daughter is only 3 and a half years old, but I am hoping to find a unique costume for her this year. I would like for her to be a Medieval Princess version of Cinderella, perhaps before she went to the ball, so possibly still in a peasant outfit. I thought this dress might be lovely for that? Her little sister, who will only be 10 months come October, is going to be a little pumpkin...so I thought it would be fitting, as she could be the pumpkin that turns into Cinderella's carriage! My question for you is: would it be possible to make these in a child's size, & if so, how much would it cost? As I said, my little girl is only 3 and a half. Also, would it arrive in plenty of time for Halloween, so that she could wear it out for fall festivities? Thank you so much!
Please could you specify how tall is your daughter? We accept orders for clothes for children taller than 3' 7"/110 cm (full height). To make the dress for younger girls, we would have to remake the pattern of the dress from scratch, sorry.
Hi there! Can this dress be made without lacing on the sleeves, and with the sleeves slightly more fitted? I love the dress, but I would get caught on things if there was lacing on my sleeves.
The sleeves cannot be made without the lacing, sorry.
Hi, I would like to order this dress in color natural flax. Is that possible?
Yes, this dress can be made to order in natural color flax.
Simply switch to the Custom size tab in the description of the dress, click Add to cart, then Go to cart. Please tick the preferred color, then fill in your measurements in the order form and click Checkout.
I forgot to ask you about the measurements . Are you needing the measurements in centimeters or in inches ?
Please provide the measurements in inches or in metric system for your choice.
How much ease does this dress have? The reason I ask is i would like to be able to practice archery in the dress. I previously made my own dress, and the sleeves literally ripped off when I raised my arms to shoot (imagine Merida in Brave at the archery competition, that was me, haha)
We add enough space for active movement, but for shooting still recommend dresses with short sleeves, such as "Archeres" dress, "Forget Me Not" and Franks dress.
My Maid of Homour just showed me this dress. It's almost exactly what I want for my bridesmaids (and the name is uncanny lol,). I only ask can the sleeve be flared rather than tied? If yes then I need three of these in wine colour.
The shape of the sleeves cannot be changed, sorry. Here is a list of the dresses with flared sleeves:
Can we order samples of fabric before order dresses?
Yes, we can make fabric samples for free, but kindly ask you to pay the minimal shipping rate, (or free with any other purchase). Please 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. Please note that shipping usually takes 16-21 days.
Do you make shipping discounts or other incentives for orders of more than one dress? I am looking at getting at least two possible three dresses from you. Love your beautiful dresses!
There are no discounts for multiple orders, but you'll get combined shipping.Also we provide 10% discount on related products!
How rough is the flax material? My daughter has sensitive skin and I don't want to get her a dress she can't wear (she's almost 11 and we are wanting to get mommy daughter dresses).
Tactile perception is very individual, but natural fabrics are always rougher than synthetic. Linen we use is soft and flowing, its density is 1.30 - 1.35 g/cm³. You can use any conditioner for natural fabrics for fabric softening.
Can this dress be made with the ribbon trim around the bottom and sleeves?
Can be made w/ trim for some extra. Please specify which trim you prefer.
Is it possible to make the dress in the black flax but with the gores in white?
The dress has no additional gores, but we can add them for $30 extra per 1 gore. Two-tone dress - doable, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Is this type of dress supposed to be worn with an undergarment? If so, which one? Thank you.
May be worn with or w/o chemise. For more historically accurate look, wear it with the Medieval Flax Linen Underdress Chemise or Medieval Exclusive XIV century style Chemise Underdress.
How much will the dress fade when washed?
Hello Zhanna! Please follow our clothing care guide to avoid shrinking and fading of the fabric.
It's difficult to tell in the photos but in the dresses with this style neck line is it possible to wear a regular bra and not have the straps show? If not can you make the neck line smaller so that a regular bra can be worn?
Hi Donna! It depends on the individual body constitution, shoulder width etc. Usually the straps would not be shown, but if it is important for you - you can leave your request (to make the neck line smaller) in a comment to your order.
Could this come in velvet? Light blue velvet? Thank you for offering these dresses.
This dress can be made out of linen or cotton fabric.
Is this dress the same style/pattern as Sunshine Janet, except for the trim?
Is there any way I may purchase the belt too? If so how much will it be?
Hi Rebecca! Here you can order the Embossed leather belt "Secret Garden".
Is it possible for this dress to be made with bust in mind or slightly more bust friendly?
Hi Arielle! Please simply take measurements with the bra on and order a custom size item.
Hello. when making the outfit do you allow extra room for ease of momement or would I need to add extra to the measurements I take. Thank you
All we need is your actual body measurements, please do not add any extra inches. We allow extra room for ease of movement ourselves.
Can this gown be made in plus sizes?
Sure, it can be made in any size, as we make our items according to the customer's measurements - simply provide the requirement measurements while ordering. No extra charges for extra big or small, tall or petite sizes!
I just got my beautiful dress and I am wondering how you suggest I care for the dress ( washing, etc) to keep it in the best condition.
It's machine washable, here is our clothing care guide.
I've been looking all over for something like this, lovely! Would it be possible to request a slightly lowered neckline on a custom size? Thank you
Hi Lily! Sure you can, just leave the comment with your request to the order.
hello. can this dress be done in purple as well, thank you.
Hi Vee! Please consider our violet linen, it is very close to the purple.
Is there a way to check an order's status?
Please email us at email@example.com.
Just bought this dress, can't wait to get it!!
1) Can this same dress be made with a notched neckline (for those of us that nurse)? 2) I hope I'm not imagining things, but once upon a time I'm sure I saw these dresses in children's sizes. Is it possible to get a child's version of any of these? TIA!
Hi Stella, sorry, we cannot make this dress with the notched neckline. As for the children's sizes - yes, we can make the custom sized item if a child is higher than 44" (110 cm).
Can you ship this dress in orange size M overnight or 2-3 day delivery? Thanks, Danae
Hi Danae! The fastest possible delivery is 1 week with UPS.
Hi! Is it possible to get "Elise Dress" in the same red colour like this -> armstreet.com/catalogue/full/medieval-franks-dress-and-underdress-garb.jpg (Franks) thankx!
Hi Alex! Yes, simple select the Burgundy linen option.
Hi, can you tell me if the lacing on the sleeves is adjustable, or just for looks? Thanks!
The lacing absolutely functional, the sleeves are adjustable.
Does this dress come with the belt? If so, do you have a silver one? Would it be possible to get the lacing in a different color? Thank you :)
Hi Mara! The dress comes without the belt, but you can always buy it here. As for the lacing - simply specify the color you want in the comment to your order.
is it possible to get this dress with a trim? and would it be possible to post more pictures of it?
Hi Nellie! Yes it is possible to order the dress with the trim. Please contact our support so they can calculate how much extra it will cost.
Does this dress come with the belt?
Hi Gwen! The dress comes without the belt, but you can always buy it here.
Hi there, i noticed in the promo shots of this dress and others they include a belt - i also noticed these are not included. Can you please point me in the direction of a website where i can purchase something similar?
Hi Kara! The "Secret garden" belt shown on pictures you can always buy here.
How durable is the linen and is it shear enought that it's see through?
Hi Gwen! The linen we use in our dresses is pretty dense and durable, especially when you follow our clothing care guide. Only natural and white are a little "seen through".
wear can i find a belt like the one in the picture?
Hi Nadja! The "Secret garden" belt shown on pictures you can always buy here.
Beautiful dress. Do you know where I can get the belt?
Hi Nastasja! The "Secret garden" belt shown on pictures you can always buy here.
Is there anyway to make this dress with split skirts for riding? Thanks!
Hi Brittany! We cannot make this dress with the split skirts for riding unfortunately. However we can add a gore, please contact our support for the estimated cost.
Would it be possible to make this dress without the sleves? I love the dress I have already had from you (the lady hunter), but it is too formal for everyday wear. I am looking for something that is as wonderfuly comfortable that does not stand out so much in a modern setting. Thanks
No problems, please firstname.lastname@example.org
Is this dress available in the orange color shown in the picture??
Thanks for your reply
Yep, you are welcome. Thank you for your question!
*Your feedback will require to be approved. Log in to our website to be able to post seamlessly
I LOVE it! It’s made of a very light linen, adjustable, and well made! It came so much faster than I thought it would, and I plan on reviewing it on my YouTube channel. The size chart is very true to size but I would size up if you have wider shoulders!
I ordered this dress in burgundy two years ago and I love it! It’s simple, but beautiful and quite comfortable. Mine is cotton, so it’s easily washable if you take the lacing off. It was custom made and it fits perfectly. Will be ordering again in another color soon! Thank you Armstreet!!
I love the simplicity of this dress. The lacing adds details and interest while still leaving the dress simple and versatile. It's quite comfortable and I've worn it all day! I have it in midnight and the colour is just as shown, deep and beautiful. I've worn it with Armstreet's "secret garden" belt which is a perfect combination, but I also love wearing it with a hand woven belt I picked up elsewhere... I can't say it enough, it's a perfect versatile dress!
This is one of the most comfortable and practical dresses, I've ever had. Good quality linen, light and simple but very good looking style. I adore wearing it!
Hi! This is my favorite dress and since it was a simple design I was able to embroider it as I pleased and make it my own. Thank you
I love this dress! I got it to flesh out a character of mine and it's so comfy that I even wear it to work. 10/10
I looooove this linen dress! It's effortlessly flowey and cool. I have only worn it once to a medieval fair in autumn and due to the adjustable lacing it was still comfortable with layers underneath it. I look forward to wearing it in summer.
I bought this dress as a base layer for a LARP costume and it's perfect. The fabric is light. It's comfortable enough to wear all day. I ordered mine with a custom fit and it's perfect. I'm very tall and have trouble finding sleeves that are long enough, but this dress did not disappoint. I was also happy to see that the color was identical to the advertised color on the website.
I absolutely love this linen dress. I own three of them. I have the green with brown trim (secret garden), the yellow, and the blue (both Red Elise). I also own the chaperone and linen apron dress that go with Red Elise. I live in hot Texas, but I love to wear medieval dresses, so the fact that these are 100% linen is wonderful! I never sweat, and the sleeves protect me from the sun. I exclusively wear my medieval dresses regularly (including some from the renaissance faire). I love the way the linen is aging (going on about a year of wearing Red Elise), I get TONS of compliments (I wear these dresses to Walmart, to a romantic sushi dinner, and as my business casual outfit. They are modest, 100% linen, and so unique no one knows how to categorize my clothes haha). I even wear my dresses camping. (I use my skirt apron to protect my dresses around the campsite). I've figured out a way to wash this dress without having to take off all the lacing. I loosen the lacing enough so I can remove the dress, but I tie the ends of the laces so they don't pull out. Turn the entire dress inside out, and tuck the sleeves into the BACK LACES. This is the best way to wash it so that your laces don't tangle, tear, or pull. When done, I turn my dress right side out, check the lacing, and hang to dry. (I've also put these dresses in the dryer. They will shrink about 15%, but I wasn't affected much by shrinkage. When you order, if you give exact measurements, your dress may shrink beyond your fit in the dryer. I'd recommend getting it tailored locally after several washings if you don't like the fit.
I love the fit o the dress but it is a bit short. I plan to add some ribbon to the bottom. The color is lovely and the fit is good. I am happy
Very happy with my purchase I have ordered before and I will order again I want one in every colour! Good quality and perfect for when I am at my stall at Medieval Events. I am UK size 10/12 a size 4 fits me perfectly once the lacing has been pulled in at the back. I get lots of compliments. Only down side I have to shorten the dress length and sleeve length but I am only 5' 2" in height.
Bought this dress and absolutely love it. It looks exactly like in the photos and even more stunning to wear in person. It works perfectly for medieval or renaissance settings, though it was quite long for my 5'2 size, but hemming it was a breeze and not a big deal.
Attending the Robin Hood festival..."Red Elise" absolutely wonderful! Fits perfect with the lace allowing you to fit it to your body and the quality of the fabric fits the period. I will be purchasing from Armstreet for future events.
Truly gorgeous, high quality and wonderfully designed! The laces allow you to adapt it perfectly to your body! Recommended!
I love this dress. I love all my garb from Armstreet! Such beautiful items
I am in love with the Elise dress. The construction is beautiful and the materials are high quality. It was the perfect base for my photography project and only added to the story we were telling. I purchased the dress in green. I cannot wait to wear it in future project and festivals.
So happy with the Elise dress. Very well made. Perfect for Renaissance festivals. We ordered a pre-made dress and did shorten the sleeves an inch and the hem which is no problem for me. Love the red burgundy color.
I love this dress. Simple, elegant and versatile. I am not a small person and measure 5'9". I was still able to order one of the pre-made dresses. It comes to my ankles, rather than sweeping the floor, which makes it perfect for my LARP costume. And the fit allows you to move around without it tugging at the arms. It is perfect.
This dress was beautifully made and sizing exactly as shown on charts. I loved the extra touch of the linen bag for storage. It shipped quickly and arrived here in Australia very quickly. I can’t wait to wear it at the medieval fair next weekend.
I ordered this dress in the midnight blue and wore it to the Ren Faire this last weekend. Lovely color in person. The dress was so comfortable to walk around in all day. I will be wearing it for many more faires :)
Pleased to hear this, thanks for your message. It would be great if you share some photos! Always welcome back to ArmStreet!
Received my dress in May, have worn it to three re-enactment events with the EMP and get complimented every time I wear it. I love it, I got mine in violet. It's a bit darker than the swatch on the site, but just as lovely!
