One size US women's letter

The sideless surcoat was a popular style of dress back in the day, but it was thought to be very racy because of the large armholes that show so much of the underdress. Sometimes it was called the "Gates of Hell" dress!

The sturdy olive green, gold, and rose colored floral print fabric layers well over any bold or soft colors and can be worn with or without a belt. The dress is one-size fits all, since the sides are open from the arm down to below the hip, where it is 56" wide. From the shoulder, the dress is 5" long, and can be shortened upon request. The fullness gives you a lot of mobility.

This listing is for the overdress only. The other items shown are to give ideas on ways to wear it. Check out the rest of my store for those pieces!

All seams are serged or French seemed for durability and neatness.

*All of my items are from an odor-free, smoke-free house.
*Clothing is all pre-made, which means that you have zero waiting time before I ship it right to you.
*All items are one of a kind, so you will never run into your "twin" at a LARP or faire. (I've seen it before. Awkward.)

Ever received a piece of garb or costume that you can barely move in? Many costumes aren't built for you to be active in; but mine are! I build them specifically for LARPers and costumers to sweat, bend, run, and jump in.

Everything in my shop is machine washable. Who wants to go to the dry cleaners right after a long weekend of looking awesome?

I ship packages twice a week, so you can expect shipment within 3 days of payment. I ship US orders using Priority Mail with delivery confirmation. If you're in a hurry, just contact me to find out about overnight or rush shipping costs International orders ship via UPS.

    Despite that these pants are “pre-made,” it took over a month for them to get from Washington State to Texas. They were excessively large and when my fiancé attempted to tighten them with the draw-string, the drawstring hole ripped across the top of the pant! Not a quality product, and not worth the $91 that was paid. The picture makes it seem like they are more fitted, but honestly I’m reminded of JNCO jeans by the size of the legs; with the unfortunate problem of all of the excessive material causing “sagging butt” syndrome.

    So for this price, I guess I expected better. Firstly, for some reason, the tie is like a shoelace or something off a hoodie, which destroys the entire aesthetic... and it's black. On my silver cloak. What? Fortunately, I have already purchased a metal cloak clasp so I'll just try to remove the tie without destroying the fabric but I can't wrap my head around why you'd choose this material instead of a ribbon or something.

    And, the fabric used is very light weight, which doesn't really give it a luxurious feel. The bottom of the cloak is not stitched together.

    Points for delivering on time and for the cute little bag that came with it (not sure what it's for?), but realistically, I wouldn't buy it again.

    Sorry you didn't love the cloak, Jamie. The description of the cloak does mention that it is tied with a strong black cord, because a ribbon wouldn't be strong enough. The bottom of the cloak, as described in the item description, is left open so that you won't get weird bunching at the bottom like with most cloaks. The bag was a free gift that I provide for all of my guests when I can. :)

    The craftsmanship and shape of the items are great, but I think I might have gotten the summer set instead of the winter set that I ordered. The fabric was very thin and didn't feel like linen for the 2 dresses ,and the tunic that was supposed to be wool seems to be winter weight linen.

    However, my requests were complicated, so maybe there was a miscommunication somewhere, and I have every faith this will get handled, and handled well.

    One last note, this part of the accidental wrong color sale. For anyone who is thinking of buying it, the fabric is a cross between pumpkin and safety vest orange. Not reddish orange as listed, but that could be from variation in computer screen settings.
