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 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.

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

It's a great dress and the merchant responded super quickly to questions. I ordered the 3X with the dress, chemise, apron, and bustle pad.
Pros:
-It's really pretty - the fabric/lace/construction look the same as they do in the pictures.
-The shoulders and arms fit great.
-It's easy to get in and out of once you know how to put it together.
Cons:
-The cord to lace up the front could be a little sturdier. and the chemise's fabric is a bit thin.
General notes:
-SIZE UP. I got the largest size and wish I had requested another two inches in the bust - it fits as is, but I can't quite lace it up all the way as the picture is.
-Read/watch the instructions on how to get into the dress. It's also easier to tie the apron sitting down.
-Shipping times reflect the item being custom and shipping internationally (it took a while).

I was eyeing this beautiful dress for a while, then when I went to order it, she customized a size slightly to accommodate my waist size, which I really appreciated! It dispatched on time, and made its way over in good time, considering the pandemic. I received it at work during a snowstorm, and wore it all evening! I LOVE it! The sewing is just beautiful, it's crafted all so well, it's very comfy, and I can't wait to wear very often!
