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.
This dress is made from natural cloth and natural dyes as were available in the Middle Ages. 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 simple lightweight dress. Great for parties and fancy dress occasions. While not a historical reproduction, the light weight fabric makes a lot of sense in the Australian climate. A great dress for having fun. Unknown on 27th Nov 2019

I'm between sizes 12 and 14 and the medium was spot on as you described. The dress fits perfectly, I just need to shorten it slightly. Love the styling, such as the sleeves. Looking forward to wearing at Medieval Fair! Unknown on 9th Apr 2019
This dress is wonderful, the sizing listed is very accurate and the dress is easily adjustable so looks very fitted but comfortable. I needed an outfit for a wedding party and unfortunately left it too late to start looking so I called the Medieval Shoppe and the staff were great. They sent it off on Monday afternoon (5pm) and it arrived on Wednesday morning (10am). I don't think I've every received anything I have ordered online that quickly. I was dreading the party because I didn't think I could get and outfit that looked authentic but now I can't wait to go!
Thanks to everyone at the Medieval Shoppe! Liz U on 3rd Apr 2018
