At The Medieval Shoppe, we are passionate about the quality and the authenticity of our historical attire. Since 2009 we have been supplying theatre groups, film production companies, advertising agencies, TV channel costume departments and re-enactors with our historic apparel.
We utilise natural fibres like cotton (which was available in medieval Europe), felt and blended wool. Our dresses are created with an attitude of respect and gratitude towards the historical source material: creating visually appropriate attire that artfully captures the look and spirit of their time period.
Our customers come first to us and we aim to foster experiences that are fun and enjoyable to all our clientele. Our goal is to help women find confidence in costume: this means that our female attire is tailored to the same quality standards as any regular shop-bought garment. Many “fancy dress” retailers market historically incorrect, whimsical attire that is made from low quality synthetic material. Such garments are so badly made that they are often fit to throw away after their first use. We provide women with quality historic costuming that not only compliments their figure, but also empowers them to feel confident in their new historic persona. Let us make you look fabulous.

Thick Cotton Dress
Colour: As per photos
Available in Small, Medium, Large and XL
This dress is made from natural cloth and natural dyes. Dry cleaning is recommended, or simply dip quickly in tepid water a few times then leave the garment in direct sunlight to dry. Our sizes are generous - so a SMALL size dress would be around size 10 or 12, a MEDIUM around size 12 to 14, and a LARGE around about sizes 14/16. If you should require any more information about a dress size please see the above chart or call us: (02) 42971039.
Sturdy construction, fits very well. Very generous sizing for the XL. Love the sleeve detail. I am 5'4" so it's a little long but with a good pair of boots, it'll be perfect. Otherwise a very easy hem to raise if needed. The front and back laced bodice designs allows you to adjust the fit very well. Unknown on 28th Jun 2019
The dress arrived very quickly [3 days] and was exactly as pictured. I was a little concerned that it might be too short [I am 180cm], but it fit perfectly. It will require a lot of ironing to get the look in the photos - but I'm happy to do that in order to have an authentic and well made garment. Unknown on 7th Nov 2017
