The Perfect Renaissance Dress

Treat yourself to a handmade, custom renaissance dress and turn fantasy into reality. Perfectly paired with our renaissance corsets, be prepared to turn heads and take people’s breath away. It won’t matter if you’re royalty, a bashful peasant, or a sultry tavern maiden, French Meadows dresses are stitched with the intention of sweeping people off their feet with authenticity.

Choose these 8 styles of dresses every costume, cosplay, or period actress needs to play the part. Be careful, though. Our renaissance dresses are so convincing you might get swept away in the experience. 

1. The Renaissance Corset Dress

Head to the faire in a beautiful, classy, ornate renaissance corset dress versatile enough for every role, yet beautiful enough to embody confidence and make a statement. Whether it be entertaining on stage, working an event, or signing autographs in the crowd, this classic will make you the star of the show. Mix and match any of the corset or skirt fabrics in our shop to create your own custom renaissance dress combination.

2. The Primrose Floral Mini Dress

This short, charming dress is covered in a dainty floral pattern of light blue on white. The skirt has abundant ruffles and scalloped edges. The ultimate cottage core piece, it comes with a sweetheart neckline with a square neckline in the back. A shiny, cinched waistband completes the look.

3. The Cottage Core Ivory Wildflower Maxi Dress

This tiered, ivory maxi dress features wildflowers and a striped pattern on a creamy background. The smocked, adjustable bodice and ruffled straps add feminine flair, while the five layers of tiers and ruffles in the skirt let you dance all day. Layer a corset on top and go for a Cottage Core look.

4. The Hydrangea Blue Garden Dress

This sweet Hydrangea Blue Cottage Core Garden Dress has a tie waist and puff sleeves for a feminine touch. The black ribbon and lace trim add a Victorian-style refinement.

5. The Forest Green Renaissance Corset Dress

This green corset dress features a front lacing corset, an attached skirt in a matching linen fabric, and should be at the center of any renaissance faire ensemble.

6. The Dusty Blue Floral Maxi Dress

This dusty blue maxi dress features an off the shoulder neckline and delicate embroidered smocking up its bodice. Ruffles run along the bottom of both sleeves and at the neckline, while a ruffle along the bottom hem of the skirt completes this floral-patterned style. Layer a corset on top of this dress for a more substantial look, or wear it on its own all summer long.

7. The Dark Blue Renaissance Corset Dress

This dark blue corset dress features a front-lacing corset and an attached linen skirt. The dark blue color is reminiscent of the sea, the sky, or nighttime. This item is perfect for renaissance fair maidens with an affinity for the sea, a fondness for stars, or a taste for the night sky.

8. The Lacey Cotton Chemise Dress

The Lacey Cotton Chemise Dress is an essential piece for any dreamer or romantic, crafted from a lightweight and oh-so-soft cotton in a delicate swiss dot flocked texture. Lace accents grace the neckline and sleeves for a dainty look, while elastic at the neckline and waist provide a comfortable fit. The neckline can be worn off or over the shoulders for a variety of looks! 

Processing Time

All made-to-order items are handmade in Portland, Oregon. This means that your item will take some time for us to make — typically between 6-10 weeks, depending on our current order volume.
