Made to Order Size chart
|FULL HIP XS|
* Sizes are UK sizes and expressed in CM. As a lot of my pieces are floaty in style and generous in sizing these size guides are just approximate average measurements as sizing can change depending on the style of the garment. Each garment depending on style may have different fits to the measurements above. You can add custom measurements above if you'd like more of a bespoke fit. FOR MY MADE TO ORDER PIECES I USE SIZES UK8-UK26 AS A GUIDE. I STOCK INDIVIDUAL SIZING FOR THESE PIECES AND I AM ABLE TO OFFER EXTENDED SIZING IF MY CURRENT SIZING DOESN'T CATER FOR YOU. IF YOU ARE IN-BETWEEN SIZES AND WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A BESPOKE SIZE MADE UP PLEASE CONTACT ME BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.
Transport yourself to a realm of timeless allure and ancient tales with my medieval-inspired dress, a true beauty that pays homage to the legends of the "promised land." This enchanting piece captures the essence of folklore and the dreams of a utopian world in every stitch and detail.
The square neckline of this piece is a nod to medieval elegance, with its clean lines and regal silhouette. It frames the décolletage in a way that's both modest and alluring, embodying the grace and dignity of a bygone era.
The puff sleeves inserts, a hallmark of medieval fashion, evoke a sense of enchantment and timelessness. The detailed print on the sleeves tells the story of a land of promise, with intricate motifs inspired by ancient legends and the dreams of a magical future.
The waistline meets in the middle in an empire design, creating a flattering and unique silhouette that draws the eye to the center of the dress.
As for the print, it's a tapestry of myths and patterns inspired by the rich tapestry of folklore and legends. You'll find symbols of adventure, danger, destiny, and magic hidden within the fabric.
My medieval-inspired dress, with its square neckline, puff insert sleeves, and a "promised land" print, is a journey into the heart of folklore and utopian dreams. Wear it with pride and let your spirit be lifted by the tales of old and the promise of a brighter future.

OA Care Guide
OA Care Guide
As printed onto the care labels stitched into OA garments, I strongly recommend to dry clean your beautiful new additions. As these pieces are all handmade with love by an independent seamstress, in an ethical and sustainable way they are not processed with harmful chemicals and washed, and then rewashed like fast fashion brands.
If your piece has an alternative fabric - like a bright white collar on a purple dress then I would definitely advise to dry clean or spot clean to avoid colours bleeding into the collar. If a garment absolutely has to be washed then add 1 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle or one-half cup salt to the wash to help hold in colors. Use color-catcher sheets, which trap extraneous dyes during the wash cycle to prevent bleeding. Digital printed garments' colour does not usually run, however, the lining of the garment may run. Please do not scrub your pieces as this can cause damage to the surface.
When possible it is always kinder to steam garments rather than ironing them. Steaming removes creases by relaxing the fibres of the fabric. Ironing, on the other hand, uses the heat of the metal base and weight to compress the fibres. The compression of fibres over time can cause irreversible damage and shorten the life of the garment.
Care Advice for Corduroy and Needlecord Fabrics
I recommend to spot clean Corduroy when and as needed, I strongly recommend you to dry clean OA garments, but if a full wash is required here is some care advice;
If possible, a gentle hand wash would be best on a very low temperature. Do not scrub the fabric as this will destroy the pile. On high heat corduroy tends to shrink and the dye can run. I would advise where possible to only dry clean.
To revive the ‘pile’ (the textured fluffiness of the corduroy) I would recommend steaming the corduroy. This maintains the fluffiness of the corduroy. DO NOT iron corduroy on either side of the fabric – this flattens the texture and can damage it. The needlecord I have chosen works best with steaming and is the perfect weight to prevent too many creases.

- Steam Rather Than Iron
- Don't Tumble Dry
- Spot Cleaning Advised - Do Not Scrub

Okay, I love a puff sleeve maxi dress but this print seriously takes it to another level. When I got the dress in the mail I was just staring at the pattern for nearly 20 minutes marveling at all the detail and hidden gems in the print. The detailing on the bodice is also just amazing. I’m addition to the neckline, the stitching of the bodice is really reminiscent of the lines created by stays and it looks so gorgeous on. This brand never disappoints
I absolutely adore my new lover’s eyes blouse. The workmanship, quality and detail is exquisite and the size is on point. I adore the nod to historical silhouettes too. The lover’s eye print is fantastic and makes the blouse so unique. I look forward to enjoying it for many years.
This is even more stuning than the photos. The pattern is vibrant and eye-catching. The material is a beautiful soft, almost delicate corduroy, so cosy. Superb quality of make, this is a forever piece. I couldn't be more delighted.
I bought the pavlova dress from Olivia Annabelle. Gorgeous print and I can’t wait to swish around in it this summer
This looks so very beautiful. I was a little worried it would come too low but no it's perfect. The dress is very well made too, highly recommend this brand.
A quality robe which can be dressed-up or down. The fabric is medium-weight (not too thick for warmer weather) and the embroidery elevates the overall design. There’s plenty of room to manoeuvre - looks good open or tied. Can recommend.
I love Olivia Annabelle! The prints are always so cute, clever, and interesting, and the dresses are amazing to wear. I get compliments literally every time I wear something! Always planning my next purchase
The fabric designs are really special, the construction is quality, and you're supporting a smaller business. I have a shirt and a dress and both are lined in the bodice which makes all the different to how they feel (and for the short, means it isn't completely see-through) as well as being fun things to wear!
I got it this morning and have had two compliments already - just gorgeous. And really lovely fabric, thanks so much.
Beautiful design and gorgeous quality I love it!
