Hi Shannon, yes we can make it in green linen with narrow Princess in Exile trim.
Is there anyway I could have this dress made and shipped to Seattle, Washington USA before August 10th? I've been looking for this dress for my wedding since I saw it on Pinterest and only found it today.
Dear Michelle, pre-made dress (from stock) can be delivered on time. Unfortunately, there is too little time left for custom size dress, sorry.

Hello. Does the red linen look exactly like the red in the upper Images? Or does it appear slightly pink?
Dear Enya, the burgundy linen shown on the pictures of the listing is not available anymore, unfortunately. You may check all linen colors that we have here: https://armstreet.com/fabrics.html
Can this dress (Medieval Linen Dress “Archeress”) be made without the white sleeves? Meaning, made with only the short sleeves?
Hi Christine, this dress comes with short sleeves. The long sleeves that you see on the pictures are the sleeves of the Archeress chemise.

Hi Anjali! Yes, it is possible. We can offer you narrow silver Celtic trim and Forest Princss silver trim. Please simply leave a comment to your order with the request for the trim you like.
Which color has the dress that the model at the picture is wearing?
Hi Tilda! It is the old vesion of burgundy linen. Currently the burgundy linen that we have is brighter.
Hi, I am between sizes (86cm bust with a 70cm waist) so do I go for the size 0? which may be too tight for archery and a chemise? Or size 2? Which might be too big to give me the silhouette I'm looking for? Whats the returns policy for over seas, just in case? Thank you!
Hi Belinda, size 0 should fit fine. However, if you like loose fit, then it is better to go with size 2. Pre-made items can be exchanged or returned, but shipping cost is covered by customer (unless shipping protection is paid).
Can I order an in stock dress in navy blue size 4 but get it 2" shorter than your standard 5'6" length? I am trying to get it to the USA before mid May.
Hi April! Pre-made dress cannot be altered, ufortunately. In this case you would need to order custom size dress and it will be made according to your personal measurements.
Hi, I was wondering if this dress is suitable for breastfeeding access? Also, do you do any baby items at all? I have a 6 month old daughter. Thanks Amy
Dear Amy, the dress can be unlaced in front so basically it should work for breastfeeding. We do not make children clothes, sorry.
I am wondering if you have a timeline for when the size 0 & 2 dress will back in stock?
Dear Kori, you may order any size you need even if it is out of stock. It will be made for you personally for the stock price.
Hi...I larp & I am an archer. This outfit is beautiful & detailed. Why does it only go to a size 12?
Dear Erin, our size chart ends with size 12. However, our size chart is different from the standard one. Please check it before placing the order.
You say that fixed size dresses are (148 cm) long in sizes 0–8. Is that measurement taken from the neck, the chest, the shoulders or elsewhere?
Hi Nina, it is a full length of the dress itself from the top to the hem.
I saw in the comment section that some people were ordering this dress in green? Is this dress still available to order in green linen? If so is there an image of the color of the green linen? If not could I possibly see clearer image of the three color options available online right now?
The dress is available in green in custom size. Just switch to a "Custom size" tab and choose the desired colour.
Does it work to wear the dress without the chemise? I love it but my funds are limited!
Well, yes it can be worn without chemise, but please note that the dress itself has short sleeves. Also, it has front lacing, so we`d recommend wearing something like T-shirt underneath anyway.

I purchased the archeress dress and wanted to know what the wash/care instructions were. Thank you
Linen clothes is machine washable, you can use machine wash in the delicate mode at a temperature no higher than 30 degrees (30°С=85°F). Presoaking is not recommended. To prevent color fading, use detergent for colored laundry. Do not use bleach. Do not use hot tumble drying. To avoid shrinkage use the shortest spin cycle and dry items flat, away from sunlight. Clothes made of linen is easier to iron when fabric is slightly damp. Linen requires the iron to be on the medium to high heat setting. Turn the garment inside out to protect it from the heat of the iron.

Dear all, I would be interested in buying the Archeress dress in nature flax or midnight blue flax with the blue trim. Is that possible? Is the nature flax the same color as the "Wanderer Dress" that I have already bought? Do you have an example what the Archeress dress would look like in blue? Many thanks for your feedback Best regards Anna
It's available in natural and in midnight blue flax with the blue trim in custom size. Concerning the natural flax, it is different from the Wanderer dress, you can see how it actually looks here. Hope our answer helped you. :)
Hi. Is is possible to have this made in a long sleeve? And what would it cost? I already have 2 of it in the regular short sleeve style. It would make me VERY happy! Thanks, Rowena
The only way to get it with the long sleeves is to add a pair of long fitted detachable sleeves, same as on “The Alchemist's Daughter” dress, for $35 extra. Please be sure to provide your elbow, forearm and wrist circumferences and mention preferable color for the sleeves in a comment to your order.

Hi, I'm planning on ordering the "archeress" dress (for a wedding) in green, but are unsure of which trim! I wonder if it is possible to get the "silver celtic" trim? (And the extra cost?) But since I haven't seen the colors together in real life, I was hoping that you could tell me if it's a good choice? I was planning on wearing the "Archeress belt" with stainless steel as well. Thanks!
Usually we recommend this dress in Green with Brown or Blue Archeress trim; if you're looking for the silver trim - we can use silver Celtic trim or silver Forest Princess trim. Both of them can be applied for $10 extra.
I am thinking about ordering this dress in red wine or burgundy, but having a little trouble choosing. I read a previous comment which says the dress on the model is burgundy, but that colour does not really match the colour swatch. Could you say which image is more true to colour - the model's dress or the colour swatch? Thank you for all your help.
The dress in the pictures and the swatch of Red burgundy linen are the same, but color shade can slightly differ because of screen color rendition distortion.Wine red linen is brighter, while Red burgundy linen has cooler and more muted shade.
I can understand from the comments, that only narrow trim is possible for this dress. So I am wondering if there is anywhere where I can see your collection of narrow trims?
Yes, you can check all the available trims here. Some of them cost a little extra, so please let us know which one you might be interested in.
Really love this dress and the Autumn Princess.. I would like to know if you can make this one Archeress I the same green and Autumn Princess? We hope to purchase and few items and this is our choice for our upcoming wedding Thank you in advance Francesca
The "Autumn Princess" trim is too wide for this dress, sorry. We can put it along the neckline, sleeves and along the bottom of the dress, but it's too wide for the front slit on the bodice.
Hi! the dress in Midnight flax (in stock) come with Blue Archeress trim? Thanks!
Yes, Midnight dress (in stock) come with Blue Archeress trim.
I want to order the custom Acheress Dress in Burgundy. I would like to add the detachable sleeves, but don't see how to add that to my order. Is the fabric for the detachable sleeves the same as the dress? How do I order them? Thanks, Sharyn
Can be made with detachable sleeves for $35 extra, same color flax or any other color from available. Simply mention this upgrade and provide your elbow, forearm and wrist circumferences in a comment to your order, we'll invoice you the extra charge.
Hello, Armstreet! I would like to order the 'Archeress' dress in a size 6, with the trim from 'Greensleeves,' and detachable sleeves (also in green) like "The Alchemist's Daughter.' It seems from the comments I have read that it would be an additional $60 for the sleeves and change in trim... is that correct? Can I order the dress in a 6 (I have one in 6 already and it's perfect.) What other measurements would you need, and how should I pay for it? Should I just order it and you invoice me the extra? Many thanks, Alix
This dress can be made with narrow Green Sleeves trim for $25 extra, and with long fitted detachable sleeves, $35 extra. Can be made in standard size 6, but please note that the dress with the above mentioned upgrades can be made to order only.
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, leave the note with your request about the upgrades and click "Checkout". We'll invoice you for the extra charges.
another one of my favourite dresses or should i say another 2 of my favourite dresses very elvish and narnian at the same time i must order when the time is correct for me i like it in green.
Thanks for your kind words! This dress look gorgeous in green, you're welcome!
If I am ordering the dress and the chemise but not the bodice... are there still the separate shipping charges?
Yes, these are two separate listings, but you'll have combined shipping price - delivery of each subsequent item in your cart costs less.
How do you tie up the sleeves as in the picture?
The sleeves of the chemise can be adjusted to any length up to biceps with the help of drawstring casing.
I just received the beautiful Archeress dress. What is the recommended fabric care? Can I wash it or must it be dry cleaned?
The dress is machine washable, use 40°C (104°F) water for wash in gentle mode. Use color safe laundry detergent. Extraction (spinning) in delicate mode to simplify the ironing. Please don't use hot drying and do not pre-soak. To avoid shrinkage use the shortest spin cycle and dry the dress flat, away from sunlight. Clothes made of linen is easier to iron when fabric is slightly damp.
Hello! I am ready to order the linen "Archeress" dress. I already have the chemise. I have a few questions. 1) For the bust measurement, I am assuming it is without a bra on...want to be sure. 2) Is there another dress on your site in the red flax linen and the violet, so I can decide which. 3) Can I substitute a different trim? Thank you :)
1) Please take measurements over your usual underwear, which you're going to wear with the dress.
2) Wine red dresses are the kirtle and the Alchemist's Daughter; there are no violet dresses on the site, sorry.
3) Yes, we can use different trims for some extra (exact price depends on the trim), simply email us which trims do you like. Please note, this dress can me made with narrow trim only.
Hi, I am aware that it is possible to order this dress with detachable sleeves as for the Alchemists daughter, but I was just wondering whether these detachable sleeves could be made without the cut-outs? I.e. a full/whole detachable sleeve?
Detachable sleeves - doable, $35 extra. We'll need your elbow, forearm and wrist circumferences. However, even with those measurements, it's a risky thing to produce whole sleeves remotely without any fastening - we can do this but no claims on this matter would be accepted, sorry. Thanks for understanding.
Hello! I noticed in a previous comment that you can do detachable sleeves. Is it possible to order the dress with the sleeves so the tunic would not be necessary? Faire comes during the warm season and I'm afraid that two layers would be too much. Thank you!
This dress can be made with long fitted detachable sleeves on request, same as on “The Alchemist's Daughter” dress, for $35 extra. Please be sure to provide your elbow, forearm and wrist circumferences in a comment to your order.
Will you be bringing any stock of this dress to Pennsic?
Yes, we're going to bring some "Archeress" dresses with us to Pennsic. Welcome to our tent!
Can the Archeress dress be made with long sleeves? I am thinking of ordering it in green wool, with an extra long back hem. Please let me know if you can do this & how much it would cost. Thanks, Rowena
Sorry, this dress cannot be made from wool.
If we order the archress dress from stock, will it have trim?
Yes, dresses from stock come with the Archeress trim.
Hello. I have previously bought the underdress in linen to the Achress dress. I was planning to make the dress proper myself since it must be in grey. However I am pressed for time. Can you make it in grey linen (I know it is not on you list)? Or could it be made with your grey woolen fabric - or is it too thick? I really love your clothes and I am sorry for the inconvenience. Regards, Emma
Unfortunately we don't have any grey linen, sorry. This dress cannot be made of wool, as you said, it's too thick for the dress.
Is possible this dress in cotton? thanks
This dress cannot be made of cotton, sorry.
hello again can you please show me more big samples like befor but of the red burgundy flax, orange flax, midnight blue flax and yellow flax so i get an idea of this dress in these colours please thank you sarah
Could the trim for the "autumn princess" dress be used on this design (archeress)? Or the trim used on the "green sleeves" dress?
Can be made with narrow "Green Sleeves" trim for $25 extra. "Autumn Princess" trim is too wide for this design, sorry.
Could this dress be made in violet flax using the special option purple-peachy trim from the "Lady of the Lake" dress?
Yes, can be made in violet with narrow purple-peachy "Lady of the Lake" trim for $15 extra, or we can put wide trim along the hem (sleeves and neckline can be made with narrow trim only) - for $35 extra.

I love this dress, but would be wearing it in the fall. What cloak would you recommend that would match? Thanks!
Since this dress has short sleeves, we recommend to combine it with a coat. Also pay attention to the cloaks with ethnic flair, such as “Lost Princess” Cloak
Hello! I am considering this gown and chemise set for my wedding attire, and I had a question for you: is it possible to use the Celtic Green/Gold trim on the gown instead of the options shown?
This is possible, narrow (1" width) Celtic Green/Gold trim - no extra; narrow trim on the sleeves and bodice + wide trim (2" width) on the hem - $10 extra.
Can this dressed be custom ordered in the brown flax but with the original (designed by Armstreet) Viking style trim as used in the Flax linen Viking Tunic "Eric the Scout" I would like to have similar matching outfits.
Yes, the dress can be made with narrow Vikings trim. No extra, simply add a comment to your order.
Any idea when the green linen option might be available again on this dress?
Green flax should be available again within two weeks.
Hi I was wondering if this (linen dress "ARCHERESS") is such that it can allow a woman to ride a horse with her legs on both sides of the saddle like a cowboy? Thank you, Sid
This dress has a fairly wide skirt with 4 additional gores (6-7 meters round at the bottom, depending on the size), so that horse riding is quite possible.
Also there are many ways to modify the usual dress in a dress for horse riding:
Hi. Is it possible to make the skirt even fuller? If so, how much would it cost? I'm seriously considering buying one this spring!
Yes, we can add an extra gore/gores ($30 extra per one extra gore), simply add a comment to your order.
Hi, again. I just wondered if it was possible to make this dress in wool instead of linen? I live in Norway and it can be quite cold up here, especially in the winter.
This dress cannot be made of wool, it's too thick.
Hi! Which trim would you suggest to use with a green dress?
Brown Archeress trim looks amazing with this dress in green! Welcome!
Hi, Could you give me the length measurement for the archeress dress in size 2? Thank you Krista
Fixed size dresses are 58" (148 cm) long in sizes 0–8 and 59" (150 cm) in sizes 10–12.
Hello, is the hem of this dress wide enough to ride in (I'm going to do mounted archery)? If not, can it be made wider?
This dress has a fairly wide skirt with 4 additional gores (6-7 meters round at the bottom). Also, we can lengthen the skirt on the back and add one more gore, such upgrade costs $35 extra. You can add a comment to your order, we'll send you an invoice for the extra charge by email.
Hi! I would like to order this dress but with detachable sleeves and back lacing. Is this doable? Thank you a lot!
Detachable sleeves - doable, $35 extra. We'll need your elbow, forearm and wrist circumferences.
Back lacing is not available for this dress, sorry.
Hi. I'm thinking about ordering the dress for a friend of mine. Is it possible to Five you the measurements in cm? It would be very unaccurate to convert them into inches because we live in Switzerland. Thank you!
No problems, you can provide the measurements in centimeters. You're welcome!
On the chemise : It looks relatively fitted. How does one get in and out of it without ripping the garment ? I I did not see and zipper or Laces.. Very good pictures. Thanks Gabrielle Bakker
The chemise has semilying silhouette, it's slim-lined due to its pattern/cutting only.
IS there any way to see more detail of the trim options?
Here are some bigger samples of the trims:
Hello! I am thinking of ordering this garment, but I am uncertain which colour to choose. I would like the same colour as shown on the lovely model. Can you tell me which colour she is wearing?
I'm just wondering, do you make your dresses, tunics and pants sized for children?
We do not produce children's clothes, sorry.
is the belt shes wearing included?
The belt is not included, it can be purchased separately here.
I already said but I absolutely love this dress and the whole collection. It's amazing that you can chose which color you want but I can't chose, they're all so beautiful. :) I'm definitely going to buy one.... Thank you for your amazing collection. ♥
Absolutely gorgeous!... and magnificent work!
Is there a discount if the Dress is ordered with the Chemise? like the Medieval Dream outfit?
Sorry, they can be purchased separately only.
Hello! The Archeress ensemble is absolutely amazing. Beautiful. I would love to own it. Can you tell me what color dress the model is wearing? Is it the wine red flax, or red burgundy?

Hi there, do you sell the belt/sheath set shown in these photos? Btw, all the photos in this collection are fabulous!
Thank you! Please see the previous comment :)
The belt/knife bit, that the model is wearing in the first picture, doesn't seem to be on the site. Am I overlooking it or is it not available here?
The belt with frog is available for order in the store, the knife is not for sale, sorry.
Oh my God. This collection is absolutely gorgeous! I want it:)

I just got mine today in the stunning midnight blue with the blue trim. I was blown away when I first unpacked it and I have to say as a woman who's blessed in the bust area I really appreciate the front lacing as this item may not have fit without it. It's more fitted then the tunics I've purchased in the past. Mine is paired with the Medieval XIV Century Chemise in natural. And since I never see any feedback on this: Your clothing is wonderful as day to day clothing. I've never done an event or been to a faire. I just love the middle ages and armstreet has everything I've always wanted in a medieval wardrobe. The quality is amazing and I've become a huge fan of linen. Thank you for everything so far and I look forward to what I get in the future.
I told myself for quite some time that I “didn’t need to get this dress — I can’t just get every Armstreet piece I love...” And then ended up purchasing this dress in navy anyway. It’s totally worth it, as is everything from Armstreet. The quality unmatched, as always. I love the hidden front closure, the dress shape, and trim placement. I haven’t yet gotten to wear it for an all-day event, but even short-term it’s very comfortable — not to mention sturdy and low-maintenance both to wear and care for. Really love it!
Linen Dress “Archeress” I purchased this dress in 2019's Halloween Trim (Limited Halloween Bloody Thorn Trim) and Black along with the Archeress Chemise . I've worn it to a few LARP events and plan on wearing it to more events this year. The trim is beautiful, as always the garment is constructed with great attention to detail and lifetime wear, and area of lacing is strong. I cannot wait to wear this dress again. Thank you for always making beautiful garments.
I've worn this dress to Renfest so many times I've lost count. Once, it was in mud up to my ankles. The flax linen weathers beautifully, and looks even more authentic as it ages. Plus it stays cool in steamy weather. The skirt is so full you'll want to twirl in it. :)
This was my first LARP purchase, and is still a mainstay in my kit to this day! I’ve worn it for many different looks and it’s so versatile. It’s great for cold nights when layered up, but has also helped me survive boiling hot days at LARP fest events that I’d otherwise have just about melted at. Would highly recommend!
I got this one in red burgundy and can I just say I love it! It goes well with and without the matching underdress. I'm especially a fan of the hidden front lacing!
This dress is so versatile and comfortable. I got it with the chemise, but it can be worn without one and still look fabulous. A perfect option for a Renaissance fair, elven cosplay and so much more.
The linen is beautiful - the quality is beautiful. The lacing in the front is "slippery" so be sure to tie it tightly. The skirt is long for short people but love all the fabric. I use skirt rings to tack up the fabric. I have this in burgundy and it's stunning. It has stood up to multiple wears. I usually wear my own corset with this and gets compliments every time. I also love love love this with the chemise.
I fell in love with the Huntress costume a few years ago when I ran across it on either Instagram or Pinterest. I love the Ren. Fest. & thought my oldest should have her own costume. This was perfect. We got the Red burgundy with the red trim. Size 4 I believe. It fit her wonderfully!
I purchased the Archeress dress a while back for a Larping event as part of my character's new kit and hoo boy did I make an excellent choice. I've been in love with armstreet's selection for a while, adding this dress to my collection was honestly the best thing I could do. Sizing was amazing. I'm about 3X in women's clothing and I bought it in a size 12. It fit comfortably even with a chemise under. It's perfect for both cold and hot weather. And the coloring is absolutely beautiful.
This was my introduction to Armstreet and the initial push down the rabbit hole. My friend gave me this in green with brown trim, with the matching chemise and bodice back in 2015 (might have been 2014, can't quite remember) This is a work horse of a dress that holds up very well to wear and tear over all, from the invasion of muddy beaches, (I hiked up the skirt a bit, I'm not actually crazy XD) to tree climbing, to the day to day chafing of all sorts of random things worn hung from straps and belts for days at a time. The cut of the under arm seams means that that particular area is a little fragile, but I was lucky enough to get a bag in the same colour linen as the dress and have used pieces of that to reinforce, and repair those spots over the years. I did change out the standard trim to the "lady hunter" one later on, and I really recommend choosing it as a custom option if you want a slightly more luxurious feel to it. I put broad lady hunter trim along the hem, sleeves, and rounded part of the neckline and narrow "Lady Hunter" trim along the lacing. DISCLAIMER! No Armstreet does NOT sell trim separately, the "lady hunter" trim was taken from one of my other Armstreet robes that I'd changed the trim on to one I'd woven myself.
This was my first Armstreet purchase in navy, and I have since bought a green one too. Perfect for combat with a basic chemise, can be dressed up with layers, and remains comfortable with plenty of movement. I adore the huge skirt, the shape is so flattering, and as always the linen is beautiful.
I ordered this in midnight blue to wear as part of my wedding ensemble for this coming fall. It looks awesome, fits well, and above all... comfortable! Can't wait to wear it for my wedding and then every chance after!
I ordered this dress in navy blue and it immediately became my favorite dress! The craftsmanship was amazing, I spent quite some time just looking admiring the stitching and lacing details in this dress. I was able to wear it in the summer heat at a renaissance fair I went to as well. The fabric is light and breathable. 10/10
I have the blue flax archeress dress in blue flax. I absolutely love it! The fit is great and the linen is soft. It is very breathable which is a must in Florida!
I purchased the burgundy dress, and my goodness it is stunning. The pleats in the skirt make it fit the waist but still have a skirt that you’ll never want to stop twirling!
This was my very first purchase from ArmStreet and it was perfect! I got the dress in dark blue with blue trim and it’s a very simple yet elegant piece of garb! It looks lovely paired with a chemise and a bodice too! The skirt is super billowy and it breathes quite well! An absolute gem added to my faire garb collection.
This was my first purchase (of many I hope!) from Armstreet, along with the matching chemise, and I adore this dress. The quality is great and I'm pleased to say that, even as someone perhaps a little bustier than average, the size 6 fits me well! I love that it can be used for multiple types of characters depending on the accessories worn with it. I look forward to wearing it for years to come!
I purchased 2 custom Archeress dresses from Armstreet. I bought one for myself and one for my daughter and I was a complete email nuisance in the process. I kept emailing about colors, trims, sizing, shipping and more all while receiving prompt and courtiously helpful replies from Armstreet. When my dresses arrived they fit like a dream and we were so pleased we also bought the Archeress chemises to go with them. I experienced such a positive experience on such beautiful high quality products that I would highly recommend Armstreet to anyone, and often do.
I absolutely love love LOVE this dress! Beautifully simple and very breathable! Perfect for the spring and summer months!
The quality of Armstreet clothing is just amazing! Everything I have ordered so far has been so well made! I'm not in the habit of leaving comments about items I buy online, but I am just so blown away by this dress I had to let you know how much I love it!
I ordered this dress "Archeress" in green with brown trim for my daughter for Christmas and it is truly beautiful! The fit is perfect and the dress looks lovely in the green linen - she has worn it every day this week. I also ordered the “Sunshine Janet” tunic for underneath in natural with the same brown tim and it goes quite nicely with the Archeress Dress. We also added the bracer and the dagger belt - both a big hit. I could not be more pleased with my purchase!! As Christmas crept closer we stayed in contact by email with the Armstreet and they were quite helpful at keeping us posted as to the status of the dress - and ensured that it arrived in time for Christmas. Armstreet posted it to us on a Tuesday and it arrived in Toronto, Canada by UPS three days later on the Friday. I will definitely order from Armstreet again - Thank You so much Armstreet Team - You have made my daughter feel like a princess!
Just got the dress today. It is gorgeous! My first purchase from Armstreet. It's as wonderful in person as the pictures. I will be a returning customer! Although will probably buy custom size next time because the fixed size was a little too long, but still beautiful.
hello armstreet i thought you would like to know i wore my archeress dresses at a convention on Saturday and met merry/ Dominic Monaghan from lord of the rings in a photo shoot and he saw and liked them and said great outfit. other people at the convention also liked it truly is perfect fit and very fabulous on me. well done armstreet your elvish work got appreciated by a fellow elf/hobbit, brilliant!

Thank you, Mags! We're happy that you liked the dress, thanks for your kind words!
I ordered this in burgundy with the matching chemise, and it's beautiful! The burgundy is a deeper, richer red than pictured, and looks stunning with the trim. The skirt is nice and full, and the dress easily laces up at the front. All-in-all, a stunning and comfortable outfit that's great quality.
Thank you very much for the detailed review, Amy! Always welcome back to ArmStreet!
Thankyou. For second dress but in brown. I love it .. I have basicly almost the whole Archeress and Alchemist Daughter collections. Thank you for perfect sets!

Hello i must next get this dress In brown color i have the full set In i think in red burgundy i love to have it in all colors. Brown is next. Thankyou to the whole team makin Such amazing clothing i get soo many compliments. Thankyou
You're welcome! And many thanks for the review!
I just received my dress yesterday and I am very, very happy. I also purchased the under tunic and belt along with it. I ordered the red burgundy color with red trim. It is very red, not a wine color as pictured, but I still love my dress all the same. The measurements are perfect and they are a hearty, quality material. The front bodice laces like a corset, so you can adjust the fit tighter or more relaxed. Beautiful garment, I look forward to purchasing more!
Thanks for your feedback! We're very pleased that you liked the dress! Always welcome back to ArmStreet!
I purchased this dress and I'm extremely happy. The quality of the material and sewing are very good. The colors are extremely vibrant. Thank you for making the coming Faire season super exciting.
Thank you, Sara!
