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 utilize 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.

Some medieval clothing websites may carry “.au” at the end of their address and have pricing in Australian dollars. They may even offer free postage, giving the impression that you’re dealing with an Australian business: but when you search the site for contact details, such as an address or telephone number, these are strangely absent! This is because such websites are located in places like Germany or China. When you order from such businesses, you are essentially being tricked into placing an overseas order, which of course means the delivery will take weeks, the risk of loss or damage is increased, and if there’s an issue with the apparel upon arrival (wrong item, bad quality, wrong size or colour) then sending it back will not be a realistic proposition. With The Medieval Shoppe you are dealing with a truly Australian owned and Australian located business.
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.
This is a beautiful dress, and very flattering. It's comfy to wear and easy to adjust however I would say this is very much a dark brown, and not "light brown" as stated and pictured. I think it would be better if there were more photos to show the actual product. The stock photo does not reflect the true product in my opinion. I'll keep the dress, as it is great quality and I may be able to use it in the future, but now I'll have to go searching for something else as this is not quite what I had in mind for my outfit for an upcoming medieval faire.

Excellent Quality, very well made. The lace up sides make it adjustable to the perfect fit.
I also have the off white bonnet which matches perfectly. I feel amazing when I put this dress on, I feel like a queen. Can't thank you enough for the excellent service, prompt delivery and attention to every detail. Lois on 5th Oct 2019
