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 with the sizes on the chart, we recommend choosing the "custom size" option. After placing your order, submit your measurements through our Custom Sizing Form as soon as possible. Delay in receiving your measurements will also delay your order.

All our garments, including the Charlotte Overdress, 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.

The typical production time for an 18th century Overdress & Skirt ranges from 4-6 weeks, depending on the current order volume. Keep in mind that the processing time does not include shipping.

This gown is perfect. Caroline communicate...

This gown is perfect. Caroline communicated beautifully and made an adjustment to the waist to ensure the fit. I was stunned by how fast she was able to produce and ship this gown. Although it came from Spain, it arrived in Maine well in advance of the historical undergarments I ordered from a seller in the US and there were no additional fees. The colors are gorgeous, the attention to detail is meticulous, and I look forward to posting a picture to show her excellent workmanship. I highly recommend this seller!
