The deeply admired Black Watch tartan presents itself with striking bands of dark green and navy blue, boldly interwoven with dramatic black stripes.

This captivating design is not only prestigious but holds a special place in Scottish history as the official Government tartan. Named after the valiant 'Black Watch' companies formed in the early 18th century to defend the Scottish Highlands, this pattern carries an air of courage and allegiance to the Royal Highland Regiment.

What makes the Black Watch tartan particularly magnificent is its 'open tartan' status. You needn't belong to a specific clan to wear its eye-catching design. Simply donning this exquisite pattern allows you to embrace and pay homage to the compelling world of Scottish traditions.

Finding the Right Size:
Please refer to the size chart to select the correct size for your dress. Keep in mind that historical costumes don't follow standard sizing, so getting an accurate fit is important for comfort and effectiveness. Here's a complete guide on how to measure yourself.

Custom Sizing:
If your measurements don't align perfectly with the sizes on the chart, we recommend choosing the "custom size" option. After placing your order, submit your measurements through our Custom Request Form as soon as possible. Delay in receiving your measurements will also delay your order.

Important Note:
Made-to-order items cannot be returned. Please make sure you're certain about the size you choose. If unsure, opt for the custom fit option.

To care for your costume, we recommend dry cleaning only, ensuring your costume remains in pristine condition for all your historical adventures.

· After putting on your historical underwear, step into the dress by sliding it over your head.

· Allow the back of the dress to hang behind you, and position the front panel against your abdomen (ensuring the waistband covers the lower ribs).

· Secure the front panel around your waist with the cotton ties.

· Finally, put your arms through the sleeves and arrange the train folds.

· To finish, thread the cord through the eyelets from bottom to top and conceal the knot in the neckline.

All our garments, including the LOUISE dresses, are handmade in our workshop in Spain. Each piece is crafted with love and care, using the finest materials to ensure excellent quality. These garments are meant to be cherished for years to come.
