This is very classic medieval style set. Dress is a classic version of medieval underdress. It can be used as a single dress or as a part of more complicated garb with surcoat. Lacing on the back allows making size adjustments easily.
Medieval style surcoat can be used with number of ArmStreet's dresses, more matching underdresses available in store. It's great piece to make your look even more medieval.
Both dress and surcoat come in natural flax linen, which is really one of the best fabrics ever existed. It's light, breathable, durable and has unique sunlight protection properties.
Please note, the tunic 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.
Choose one of those trims depending on choosen dress and surcoat colors combination:

Hello, I am considering ordering the Sunshine Janet costume - it asks for measurements, but in the 'text' description it refers to 'sizes' that will have darts. Is this a 'custom' outfit, or just sized in regular sizes. I have no idea what dress size I am but can give measurements :)
The set goes in custom size, it will be made according to your measurements, but if your chest circumference is bigger than 39 in (100 cm) we`ll add the darts to achieve better fitting.
Hello, I am interested in this with a burgundy surcoat, which trim would you suggest for that? And would I be able to get the tunic with blue trim still, if the burgundy surcoat has a different trim? I wanted to wear it with another dress, too.
Burgundy surcoat will look great both with red and brown trim, the samples are attached below.
Sure, the tunic and surcoat can be made with trim of different colors, simply mention preferable trims in a comment to your order.
Hello, I'm very interested in your beautiful "Sunshine Janet" set. I'm officiating a wedding in the spring, and I think this might be just the thing to wear. Would it be possible for you to send me photos of some of the other tunic/surcoat color combinations? I'd especially like to see combinations of orange, midnight, green, brown, and natural. I'm having trouble picturing them in my head. Also, how is the wine color different from the burgundy? Thank you, -Freya
Usually we make photo shoots of our items only in one basic color, so unfortunately there are no such pictures, sorry.
Wine red color is brighter and warmer. Burgundy color is more dull and cool shade, it is closer to purple and brown. Here is an example of wine red dress and burgundy dress for comparison.
Does the Medieval Flax Linen Tunic and Surcoat Costume Set "Sunshine Janet" come in a standard size?
The tunic is available in fixed sizes, surcoat and full set can be made to order only.
Hello, I was wondering what dresses you would suggest for a pregnant woman? Thank you, Lanie
We recommend dresses with high waist, such as Franks dress and German kirtle, or dresses with side lacing: "White Swan", "Chess Queen", or "Lady Hunter". Please add a few inches to your current waist size and chest size when ordering, since the seamstresses can't predict your future size after a few months of pregnancy :)
Can I ask a Costuming Question? why no hoops/farthingale? They ARE period correct and I've seen a myriad of SCAdians not wearing hoops. It totally deters from the required silhouette of a Tudor Lady. As a Historical Costumefreak, I cringe every time I see the lack of hoops. Please don't take this as anything but a curiousity. The garb itself is gorgeous but I wonder why people don't finish' them by adding a farthingale?
We're not against the hoops))This garb belongs to the earlier period than the Tudors dress.
