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.

Please note that our items are meticulously handmade, which means it will take some time for us to create them. The typical production time for a LOUISE dress in linen ranges from 5-6 weeks, depending on the current order volume. Keep in mind that the processing time does not include shipping.
