Here's what a customer has to say:
It's always great to deal with the Renstore! This morning, I've ordered what will be my third Aowyn surcoat. I love these garments for their durability and flexibility. On a hot Faire day, all I need is my surcoat plus a peasant blouse. On a cool day, a full chemise plus the surcoat. On a chilly day (the Pennsylvania Faire runs through late October) I have been known to wear a full chemise and pants under my surcoat. It's also great because of its simplicity. No laces, no boning, no tricky hook-and-eye closures. Just slip it over your head, and you're set for life in a different century.
I realize that the size and color I requested are out of stock, but having dealt with the Renstore for so long, I trust you to get it to me as soon as you can. As always, thanks for your great products and even greater service.

I was afraid when I first pulled the dress out that it was going to be too big on me. I bought the L/XL and it actually fit a little snug with the chemise on. I'll admit as well that I bought this dress to be able to wear modern underclothes with, so it might not be so snug with a corset on. I am hoping that it won't be too hot as it is a poly/cotton blend, I'll be wearing it this weekend to see how it does in near 90 degree heat. But it will give me a different option for warm wear for a few cold events I go to.
I needed this surcoat for an event and it arrived so fast! Extremely well made and fits perfectly.
