“Archeress” Medieval Costume
Linen dress with undertunic and corset
1. Dress with short sleeves
Slim fit bodice of the tunic emphasizes breast and waist while wide skirt with 4 additional gussets drapes with soft pleats. All this combines into well-known medieval silhouette of the XIII-XIV centuries.
The skirt is hemmed with the trim as well as sleeves and neckline. Also the trim is used to decorate the lacing fastening at the fore part of a gown. Colour of the trim can be selected according to the desired colour of the dress.
Is made of thin unbleached natural linen. It can be put on with most medieval dresses or even worn on its own. Classic gothic silhouette (typical for the european feminine fashion of the XIII-XIV centuries) emphasizes breast and waist while softly draping hips.
Long and wide sleeves can be adjusted to any length up to biceps with the help of drawstring casing.
This natural suede bodice corset has been designed specially for this costume. It's design half based on patterns and decorations of European renaissance corset and half on later period German and French bodices. This corset has easily recognizable slope shoulder line and stand-up half-collar. Waist is tightly swifted while breast remains almost free. Front lacing gives necessary flexibility and fine fit. Decorative rolled edges laced along bottom and arm-slits complete the look.
This corset can't be custom-sized remotely, so it comes in fixed sizes: S, M, L, XL,XXL

I am in love with this costume, it was everything I hoped it would be and more. The bodice is very well made and flattering. The stitching and trim are flawless, and it was incredibly comfortable to wear for an entire weekend at faire. I can't wait to add more accessories and an additional overdress in another color.
Sheryl 27 of August 2020:
What shoes or boots would you recommend with this ?ArmStreet Team:
Hello, Found Princess shoes will match perfectly.
Dominique 12 of May 2020:
This dress is So comfortable! the layers make ti good for hot or cool weather ! Love it !
J 12 of May 2020:
Was I in love with this dress from the moment I saw it? Yes. Did I finally order one custom to my size? Yes. Was it everything I ever hoped for? Yes! I was nervous about ordering the corset because there were only three sizes, but I had no problem using the sizing chart. It fits just fine. The linen dress is lovely. The color matches exactly to what was described. Its full skirt is so much fun. The trim is gorgeous and the lacing is well done. I love having the short sleeve option for hot days. It's truly a quality garment. I read other reviews and ordered mine with a little more room in the arms and I have no regrets. The chemise is comfortable, too. I love the sleeves. Being able to tie them out of the way is very convenient. This is definitely a favorite article of clothing!
Denise 12 of May 2020:
I have so far half of this collection, only dress is blue. The materials are lovely and light. The sewing is perfect. The colours are as described and so beautiful. The workmanship is just perfect. If you buy the ready made the size is as it says. Stunning design and absolutely fantastic customer care. I know they cost alot but the results are stunning! Well worth the wait and cost. (Waiting to get corset and quiver!)
Jacobitess 22 of September 2019:
I have had this dress for 7 years now. I love it so much! To my fellow clients, I recommend giving yourself a little leeway in the arms. The dress fits me perfectly everywhere to my measurements, but it seems they went a little tight on the arms. It makes actual archery a wee bit difficult, though not impossible:)
Jared 15 of August 2019:
Wow, this arrived and I can't recommend it enough. The craftsmanship and quality are incredible for the price. They worked with me to customize my order - will definitely be a return customer.
Dominique 14 of June 2019:
under tunic and dress are amazing! bodice is a bit tight and uncomfortable for a larger person....... wish it had a custom option, armholes are a bit uncomfortable
Tessa 08 of September 2018:
Mine arrived just a few days ago, so I had the chance to wear it to the MD Renaissance Faire today! The fit is perfect and it was well worth the time it took me to save up for it. Next step is the accessories to round out the look... and quite possibly a few other Armstreet items in the future.ArmStreet Team:
Hi Tessa! Thank you for your feedback and great picture!
ArmStreet team :
Thank you very much for this amazing photo! Looking forward to seeing more!

Kirsti Westphal 22 of May 2014:
The Dress is AMAZING! I love it so much!! Although it got hold at customs and I had to pay German tax it’s still more than worth the price. Also thank you for your recommendation to order the corset one size smaller. It fits absolutely perfect now!! The first two medieval festivals we visited where I finally had the chance to wear it a full success and I got a lot of compliments. One woman even recognized it as THE “Archeress Dress” :) THANK YOU again for the support and the absolutely stunning quality. Best, KirstiArmStreet team:
Many thanks for your detailed review, Christy! We're very glad that you liked it!
Always welcome to ArmStreet!
Marie Goßens 06 of May 2014:
This dress is just wonderful! I ordered it for my wedding, it fits perfectly, has an amazing rich green colour and gives a beautiful silhouette. The matching jewelry and corset are gorgeous aswell. Thank you very very much!ArmStreet team:
Thanks for your feedback, Marie! Congratulations and best wishes from our team!
Adelanor 01 of December 2012:
I just received my Archeress dress and it is breathtaking! The quality is really really good and the colour is strong! I love the fabric, which is amazing because I'm really pointy on fabric ( usually any modern fabric outside of light cotton is itchy and unconfortable for me). I love the dress! It doesn't exactly fit in the waist area ( it's a bit too big) but nothing to important so I look like floating in it! Armstreet, you have won my heart.

Does the vest corset come with this ?
Yes, this listing includes dress, chemise and corset.
Hi, how does the dress look in the brighter red, and can I just order a standard size, like a small?
Hi Bethany, all colors look beautiful. It is more the matter of taste and which colors you like in your wardrobe :)
Do you also happen to sell the sewing patterns for the dress, chemise and the corset? I'd love to craft this costume myself.
Hi Lex, we do not sell our patterns, sorry.
Can you do the chemise in black?
Hi Jared, yes, please simply leave this request in the comment to your order.
Do you happen to have a picture if this dress in the green?
Hi Kristina! Yes, please check the video in the description of the listing where the dress is shown in green linen.
I'm interested in purchasing the full set. Manufacture time is stated at 41-47 days. Is there an option to possibly shorten that time, like an expedited option.
Hi Ashleigh, yes, of course, we can rush any order upon request for 10% extra. We also recommend to select express shipping at the checkout.
Hello! I see below that this can also me made with the green sleeves (narrow) trim. I was also wondering if it was possible to create with a narrow trim version of the lady hunter trim? Is it possible to get a larger image of those two trim options with the brown trim also? Thank you!
Hi Brittany! Sure, we can make it with Lady Hunter trim. You may see all our trims here.
Your work is inspiring, your model stunning, and the photographer wonderful. I'm an author and often do image searches to help my imagination. I will be adding your site to my regular searches. I see some requests for your friend the model to pose for shoots. Please tell her, though she certainly could model professionally, Please don't do it. People will misuse her and her beauty. Her beauty is a gift, and she belongs in your designs. Christ's blessings on you all.
The clothing and photography on this website are beautiful!
hello, this dress is so stunning but because of the price I think it should be better for me to pay first for the chemise and corset, have you got any pictures of the chemise plus corset as I can have an idea if it will be sufficient for this year`? :)
Thank you for your compliments! We don`t have any picture of the Archeress corset together with the chemise, but you can see the chemise worn with another corset, maybe this will help you to get a general idea of how the chemise may look worn under a corset.
Good day! I would like to purchase this set, but I have several questions: 1) Can this dress be made with "Green Sleeves" trim? How much does it cost? 2) I'm from Latvia and can't find my country from shipping list. But there are Estonia - nearest country... I'm wondering what should I select? 3) Will you send me invoice to this changes or should I mention it in comment as well as corset and chemise color?
The dress can be made with the Green Sleeves narrow trim, $15.00 extra for this.
Sorry, there was probably a glitch on the website, please try again, now Latvia should be available :)
Please mention the trim in the comments to your order and we`ll send you the invoice once we receive it.
I have been admiring your "Archeress" dress as a potential wedding dress for myself. I had done a sketch of some modifications I would like and was wondering how possible they would be? I can send the image file of the sketch and we could discuss details. Please and thank you!
We`d be happy to see the sketch! We make some custom modifications sometimes, but first it needs to be discussed with our designer. Please send the sketch at firstname.lastname@example.org and describe the changes.
Hi, I am fixing to be working on wedding plans and I love this dress, but I am trying to decide what I can do for my daughter and the flower girls to match, are children dress sizes a option, this is the dress I am interested in, just want them to match
Usually we don`t make the clothes for children because the proportions can be really different and it`s really hard to work with it remotely. Could you please let us know the full height of the girls and we`ll speak with our designer if we can make it.
Hello. Is it possible to get the bodice in black suede with this set? Thank you.
Yes, sure, just mention the corset color in the comment to your order.
Can I order this dress in any of your flax colors? I know on a different dress I saw goldenrod, orange, violet etc.? second, I love the trim from the forest princess or chess queen dresses, can I change the trim to the silver/black Celtic?
The dress in custom size is available in any of the flax colors, just choose the one you like. Сan be made with the narrow Silver&Black Celtic trim for no extra.
Hello, I am an author looking for a model for the cover of my novel. I was wondering if the "Archeress" model has a website or name? I'm interested in hiring her for a shoot.
Would love to see this dress in different colors, especially blue and green.
Usually we make photo shoots of our items only in one basic color, so unfortunately there are no such pictures made by us, but we have some photos from our customers. The Archeress dress in green, midnight and blue are shown below.
Hi, what's your models name? Is she professional? She's absolutely stunning! Definitely needs to be recognized! And the art work to this is so detailed, I wish I had the money to spend on it!! D:
She's our friend, not professional model. We'll tell her your compliments!
Hi, i was wondering if I could buy the set without the corset. thank you.
You can buy the dress and chemise separately, they are not available as a set.
Can I get this outfit in the white undertunic and navy blue suede corset to match the midnight flax linen dress? Also, should I get the undertunic an inch smaller all around to fit under the linen dress so it won't bunch up?
Hi Becky! Yes, it is possible. Please simply leave this request in the comment to your order.
Hello, Is the chest measurement for the corset around the fullest part of the bust or just under?? thank you
It is the fullest part of the bust.
Hello, Is the blue suede material available in the set for the corset? If so, in your experience of the colors, do you think that would combine well with the green flax material? thank you
Hi Suzanne, yes blue seude is available and it will go well with green linen color.
Is she wearing a belt to get the skirt shorter in front in some of the pictures, or is that something built in to the dress? If so, can I buy it on your site? Thank you!
Hi Lesley, yes, she is wearing this belt.
hello i just purchased this dress set along with the arm brace and necklace choker. stunning set cannot wait till i get it.. truly a huntress archeress love it... thanks armstreet for the best
Thanks for your great order, Avalyen! Always happy to work with our repeat customers!
Wow, it looks so beautiful! After I have saved some money I will definately buy this. Just asking, as I really like it, where did you get the bow and arrows? (by the way the girl is really pretty:) ) Kind regards, Amber
The bow and arrows were rented for the photoshoot.
Holy mackerel! Your model is ridinkulous beautiful. Just send me One of those!
We'll tell her your compliments!
I was wondering. I noticed that if I get the items seperatly that I could get the dress in violet (my prefered color choice) but not in the bundle package. Is there a way to bundle the violet dress with this purchase? Or do I have to spend the extra money to purchase each item seperately?
Please simply leave a comment to your order with the required color combination for the set.
I'd like to purchase the whole set, but I was wondering if there was any way to perhaps get a custom color? Even if it was at an additional cost. I'm having a renaissance style wedding, and didn't know if any of the over layers could possibly be done in white as well? Not to make your lives difficult or anything.
Hi Elizabeth, sure we can make it in white linen for you.
Will you be posting the belt and frog that she is wearing in the pictures for sale soon? Would love to get the whole ensemble for a Ren-Faire or for a awesome Halloween costume.
Yes, you're welcome - Medieval Leather Belt and Frog “Archeress”.
Is the chemise she's wearing with this set the natural color or is it white?
Hi Miranda, chemise is shown in natural linen color.
J'aime beaucoup cet ensemble, vraiment mais la qualité en vaut le rpix quoique très élevé, brravo au travail que vous avez fournis sur cet ensemble.
Will we be able to choose the color of the corset in the set piece?
Yes, please mention preferable color in a comment to your order.
Dear Armstreet team Is it possible to chose which color undertunic or corset you want? Thank you Greetings Arwen
Hi Arwen! Yes, please simply leave a comment to your order with the required color combination.
Can you get this corset in black?
Hi Michelle, sure, it is available here.
What is the color of the dress in the photo and the color of the trim?
Hi Rebecca! It is burgundy linen with red trim. Kindly note that burgundy linen that we have now is brighter than the one shown on the pictures.
I absolutely love this set, it almost tells a story! The model is gorgeous and I hope that one day you will make a durable set of costumes for horse back riders!
I love this website. Great costumes and nice pictures. But could it be posible to show some pictures if some dresses in different colors? The thing is that I would love to see this whole set but than with the orange dress. Lovely website and lovely costumes, well done! namarie, Morgaine le Fay
Hi Morgaine, thank you for the compliment :) We do not have a picture of this particular dress in orange, but our support manager can send you several pictures of this dress in various colors.
Does the corset come in different colors?
Hi Carmen, Yes, this corset can be made in different colors.
You do send to the uk? Also the colour in the picture does look like the wine or burgundy?
Hi Julie, yes we ship to UK. The color is burgundy, but currently burgundy color that we have is brighter. You may check all our linen colors here.
What kind of bow is she using a flat bow? Will it be put on the site?
Dear Avalon, the bow is not for sale, sorry.
This is gorgeous but I can't find the belt the model is wearing on your site. Are there plans to make that available?
