This dress is beautiful on! I was inbetween a 4 and a 6, and ordered the size 6, so that it would close in the back. I am fairly hourglass, and so it is a tiny bit loose in the waist, but that is a common thing for myself. My one surprise is that the arm hole is quite narrow, if you are a mid-size or plus size person with larger arms, you may notice it could be a little tight under the armpit. The boning and detail of this dress is gorgeous, and as mentioned before, it is lovely on the body. The linen is also a great weight for this dress. Considering the arm hole tightness, if I could afford it, I would still buy one in every colour. I do agree it is difficult to take off by yourself if you don't really loosen the back, but that is expected for something so heavily boned. All this being said, 5 stars. I wish I could wear it everyday.

The fabric and quality is excellent, however there are a few fitting notes. The boning which goes over the bust sits strangely, almost puckering, and it feels like it may be a patterning problem. Also, the boning over the shoulders makes this dress surprisingly difficult to get into and out of yourself without completely undoing the lacings, which is less than ideal. I expect I will be doing a bit of tailoring to get the dress to my liking, but it is very well made and I suspect if you selected the tailored option like so many of the commenters it wouldn't have these teething issues.

We are so thrilled about the beautiful look of this dress, as well as the quality of its construction, and how well it fits. Our daughter is wearing this in her brother’s wedding, then to her prom. Actually, she’d love to wear it anytime, anywhere. She has declared that as soon as she can, she hopes to add more of your dresses to her wardrobe. I am eager to share this feedback, and when we have pictures, we will post, again.

As soon as I saw it out of the (perfectly undamaged) package, I knew it would bring me joy to wear it, and indeed, it’s always been a wonder to walk around with it. It’s really confortable to wear, and the material is of good quality. I have nothing else to say but thank you for this great dress !

I bought this dress with my own measures and it fits just perfect! Took a while to get delievered, but when I asked if something had gone wrong, I had it in a week and Armstreet offered me delievery to the door with DHL to compensate. During the years I've been shopping different things from Armstreet, even if I'm quite good at sewing, and it's always very high quality and perfect service.

I love it... I need to get some accessories still but it's lovely and it arrived much faster than I expected! I can't wait for someplace or event to wear it.

Wow! Wow, wow, wow. I can't say it enough. The shipping was so much faster than I expected and the gown is worth every penny. It is so gorgeous, so well-crafted, and just an absolute dream. I went back and forth on whether to spend the money, but I'm so glad I decided to do it. I've wanted a gown like this for ages and I really couldn't be happier!

I bought this dress, because I've longed for an Armstreet ever since I found it and this seemed to be the style I'd never attempt to sew. I bought it for every day wear, and yes, no one noticed. I did modify it a little, but I need pockets in my life and I can't wander around with two inches sweeping the floor. The quality is gorgeous. I bought a standard size and it came super quickly. I am planning on doing a couple of blog posts about it and do photoshoots with the dress in general.

I ordered this dressed in a custom size. It arrived this morning and I could not be more pleased! A gorgeously made dress, in a beautiful color, and superbly comfortable as well. Thank you, once again, Armstreet!

Sister and I ordered German Rose custom made. Violet for her / blue for myself. As a forty year professional seamstress, please allow me to convey how exquisitely crafted these gowns are sewn. Quality linen. Excellent seams. Love the boning placements. Professionally pressed. And the sleeves fit our muscular Irish arms beautifully. These gowns fit like a dream. (Definite value having the gowns custom made to your measurements.) Perfect first experience for sister wearing a period gown. I will be a repeat customer. (There's two other gowns I'd love to own.) Thank you again for such great communication and service.

I love this dress so much. I decided to get it custom made and the quality is stunning. Unfortunately it came out about 1/4”-1/2” too big around the waist, but it’s not too much of an issue. I adore everything about this dress and I feel magnificent wearing it.

My experience purchasing this item really highlighted the excellent service J always receive from Armstreet. I originally ordered a standard size as I was fairly confident my measurements matched the size chart. Customer service quickly contacted me to explain that based on the measurements I provided for another item, they would recommend a custom size in the kirtle also. I am happy to report that they were right-- this dress is the most beautiful fit and makes me feel like a princess. I did find a couple of pieces of boning popped through the linen after being worn in a combat LARP, but they were an easy fix and as with all of my gear, a bit of wear adds character. I can't wait to build more layers on top of this gorgeous dress. My only criticism would be that the buttons really stand out in both colour and style, and something a little more authentic would make a huge difference.

I absolutely love this dress! It fits me so perfectly. The quality of the dress is great and the material seems very breathable and easy to wear for the whole day. I love that the sleeves are detachable as well, so if I get too warm I can just choose to not wear the sleeves and am still left with a gorgeous dress!

ArmStreet team

Good to hear! Thank you for your feedback, we love to see our customers happy :-)

Bought this dress awhile ago and still I am in love. I love the linen Armstreet uses and the color is wonderful. I bought it in yellow. I am a huge fan of mustard yellow and sunflower yellow and the color is somewhat in between this two colors. The fit is perfect for me and it is super comfy to wear, even it has a corset bodice. I love the back lacing, even it is a bit hard to lace it on your own. With help you can lace it super fast. The bones seems to stay in their place and keep their fit, not like very cheap corsets, where bones start to deform after awhile. The arm pieces are a bit tight around the wrists. It does fit, but I personally prefer a bit more space there. Nevertheless, the dress makes an amazing body shape since the smallest part is the waist. I have already a sandhour body shape, but the dress really highlighted it even more. I have good experience with hand washing and every stain it ones had, could be removed and the color stayed wonderful yellow. After awhile I bought the rest of the "German Rose" Collection and it goes super well with all the other products.

I ordered custom sizing in this dreas and love the results! The sewn in boning means I don't have tonqorry about a suppoetive underlayer or corset, meaning i can just put this on and go about my SCA day. It is my go to outfit for camping, as it is easy to layer for warmth and looks great with a fancy overdress for court. As no one is shaped the same, i definitely recommend custom ordering for your size- important in auch a fitted garment. Colour has not faded but corset plastic is starting to poke through the seams after 4 years of consistent wearing (and washing, so its more my fault than construction issues)

What is the approximate skirt hem circumference? I would like to add special trim to it to match my other pieces.

ArmStreet Team

It is about 6 meters but it depends on the size.

Is it possible to get this dress in wool if one is willing to pay the difference in price?

ArmStreet Team
