“Princess in Exile” dress
Elegant cotton princess dress
“Princess in Exile” dress
Beautifully cut elegant cotton dress
Despite what some may claim, an exiled princess is still a princess. Nobility is not about the fleeting things: flaunted luxury, superficial loyalties… nobility is something more, found in the flawless poise of the leading class. It is an ability to hold one’s head high as well as maintain dignity and self-esteem regardless of circumstances. In harsh conditions, however, one must adapt. As the princess flees the kingdom she knows she must wear a garment that is equally beautiful and practical – standards must not fall simply because one is in exile.
This is a dress of reliable, simple and practical design, crafted from fine materials. As the princess sits by a campfire in a cold forest, embarks on a long trip on horseback and navigates a busy marketplace, she is equally comfortable in her clothing. While her spirit may be dampened, the crestfallen princess is held up by suitable clothing that leaves no doubts as to who she is. The elegance of the trim shows her unparalleled sense of taste whilst not appearing tacky – the refined appearance is firm evidence of her high status.
Our simple cotton fabric is used as the main material, which makes the dress more versatile. The trim around the plunging neckline, sleeves and bottom of the dress adds an exquisite air of nobility. This dress is made to make everyone look like a princess: a side-lacing bodice gently hugs the wearer's figure for a perfect fit and flatters every silhouette. Puffed sleeves are one of the distinctive features that makes the dress recognizable, and well-fitted buttoned sleeves guarantee practicality in various occasions.
This dress is a part of our well-proven “Princess” series. We experimented with color combinations and finishing, and in this case we really like the outcome. Do you? Share your thoughts! Please note, that chemise is not included, but available in our store.

I love this dress though I may have been off on the size. My chest is 35, waist is 30, biceps is 11, and wrist is 6.5. Essentially my chest and biceps are size 2, but my waist was borderline size 2 and 4, while my wrists are size 4. I ordered a size 4 to be safe, but it is pretty lose on me in the torso area. I can pinch about 1-2 inches of fabric along my torso with the laces pulled tight. I think I should have ordered a size 2. Nonetheless, I think this is something I can easily fix with a bodice and padded bra (lol), or I can clasp the fabric tight along the back. As others have said, its a thick fabric and pretty heavy, but its amazing quality, well worth the price, I absolutely love it, and the burgundy color is beautiful! The good thing about it being loose is that I should be able to wear it for a long time.
This is a very beautifully designed dress. But it is heavy, material is cotton and this is a very heavy dress, like 10-15 pounds of dress heavy. Perfect for colder weather.
The dress is spectacular, as usual. The fabric and workmanship couldn’t be better. I can certainly appreciate that women back then needed help getting in and out of their clothing.
It was quite difficult for me to put on and take off the dress, but the look was gorgeous. It was delicately made and the fabric was strong. The red was darker than I expected but still beautiful. I look forward to wearing it out one day!
Unfortunately, since the day I purchased this dress, I haven't yet had the opportunity to wear it out. Which is a shame, because it's absolutely gorgeous! Especially with the wonderfully full skirt, I do feel like an actual princess! I do hope to be able to get to at least one event this season wearing this absolute beauty. While the dress fits very well as it is, the side lacings give the dress just that little extra maneuvering space to make the ~perfect~ fit. And the color of the fabric is just divine! Thank you so much!
I really love this dress a lot and it fits really well. I think the only thing 'bothering' me is that the buttons on the sleeves are made of plastic, but that's just nitpicking. this was my first armstreet dress and it made me fall on love. I just keep twirling in it, because the skirt is so wide and flows beautifully!
It's perfect. I ordered the Princess in Exile dress, chemise, belt, and bodice. It fits exceptionally well. The quality is superb. I'm sure I'll use this again, and maybe the generation after me will as well. The customer service was excellent; I had a deadline and received it on time. Thanks, beautiful work.
I love the dress and it is well made. I bought this dress as a gift and will be sending it to my Granddaughter for the Holidays, she will just love it as it was one of the items on her wish list.
This dress more beautiful than I could ever imagine. And the craftmanship is perfection. Thank You!!!

Hi Cate, custom size dress is made according to the given measurements. Fixed size dress fits the full height of 5 feet and 5 or 6 inches.
i really love the dress but I am between a size 2 and a size 4 so probably better 4 not to risk. i am based in italy how long would it take to have the dress? do you have also a version in green? Is there a possibility to talk with an assistant because I would also need another dress for myself ( more simple for daytime) and two outfits for my husband.

Are there any photos available of this dress in the dark blue cotton? I am trying to decide between between the blue and red options. Thanks! :)

Hello! I am size 0 but my height from head to toe is very petite: 150 centimeters. What should I do?
Dear Silvana, we recommend to select custom size option for this dress and it will be hemmed accordingly and it will be made according to your personal measurements.
If I am on the high end of size 0, should I order a size 2 if I order a chemise to go underneath the dress, or will that be too big?
Dear Andrea, please send us your bust and waist circumference so we could help you to choose the right size.
Hello! I am wondering if the Princess in Exile comes with the belt or if I need to order that separately. This will be my third dress from you. I love your shop!

Hi I was curious about your gowns and dresses. I am aware you have custom sizing which is amazing. However I was curious what you would recommend for a growing baby bump? I’m involved with a medieval society and am curious if it would be easy to take to a seamstress to let out or if they are accommodating enough for a growing belly. It would be heart breaking to have to purchase another couple of gowns each trimester. Any suggestions?
Hi Austin, we recommend dresses with empire waist or this kirtle dress.
Regarding your fixed sizes, I saw the note about the dress length. (Fixed size dresses are 58" (148 cm) long.) I'm 5'6" (167 cm) and approximately a size 4 according to your chart. Should I get a custom dress for the longer dress length?
Dear Brittany, the dress should fit you nicely.
Iam a plus size women size 16, do you make any beautiful white dresses in my size ?. It will be for our 15 year wedding vow ceremony, we are senior citizens, and my husband is an airforce veteran, thankyou again.
Dear Joan, please simply select custom size option for the dress and send us your measurements in the order form so we could make custom size dress for you.
