“Sunshine Janet” Tunic

Medieval trimmed tunic with lacing

This tunic is a classic version of medieval underdress. It can be used as a single dress or as a part of more complicated garb with some sort of overcoat or surco. Lacing on the back and sleeves allows to make size adjustments easily. Matching surcoat is available in the store.

Flax linen is 100% natural, it looks very authentic and this unique fabric gives great heat protection and it's light and dense at same time.

This design seems to be simple, but it's very well though out and dress looks great at almost any figure. There are long lacing along back and sleeves.

Please note, the tunic of size 6, 8, 10, 12 has the side bust darts for better shaping. Also, if the difference between your waist and hips circumferences exceeds 9 13/16 in (25 cm), the dress won't fit tightly.

    Can this dress be made in other colors?

    ArmStreet answered 18 of January 2018:

    Yes, it can be made in other colors in custom size. 

  • Melissa Hadley 08 of April 2017:

    Is it possible to get this dress with either the silver or gold forest trim? I was looking at the "Sunshine Janet" style as a possible bride's maid dress to complement the "Forest Princess" set.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Yes, the dress can be made with the Forest trim, no extra. Just mention the trim in the comments to your order.

  • Suzanne Shelp 30 of March 2017:

    Hi, What is the length of this dress in a fixed size 8 or 10? Thank you

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Fixed size dresses are 58" (148 cm) long in sizes 0–8 and 59" (150 cm) in sizes 10–12, please note that our sizes are different from US, EU and UK systems, please check the size chart.

  • Carmen P.S. 04 of March 2017:

    Would this dress work under the "Green Sleeves" dress or would it show at the neck do you think?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    We wouldn`t recommend wearing this dress under the Green Sleeves dress, it wouldn`t be comfortable. Originally, the dress is supposed to be worn over our Medieval Exclusive XIV Century Style Chemise Underdress. Also, our Medieval Flax Linen Chemise is a good basic chemise to wear with the dress.

  • Khairul Syamal 13 of February 2017:

    Hi im from Singapore. if i will to order will it reach to Singapore?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Yes, sure, we ship worldwide. Just choose Singapore in the country list in your cart and enter your address!

  • Aerial 26 of December 2016:

    I was reading that the Sunshine Janet sizes fit those who are 5 foot 6 inches tall. I'm 5 foot 10 inches tall. Should I custom order one to fit my height? I love the natural color with blue trim.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The dress in fixed size may be a bit short for you, we recommend ordering it in custom size.
    On the other hand, maybe if it is about 2 in above the ground, it will be more comfortable to wear. :)

  • Aerial 25 of December 2016:

    Hello, I love the Sunshine Janet dress. I already have the lost princess velvet vest in midnight blue and I think it would go well with the dress. I was reading the sizes and I'm worried about the length. I'm 5 foot 10 inches tall. Will I need to custom order for length?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Indeed, you may get an interesting and nice look combining the dress with the Lost Princess corset.
    The dress in fixed size may be a bit short for you, they are 58" (148 cm) long in sizes 0–8 and 59" (150 cm) in sizes 10–12. We would recommend you ordering it in custom size, but it also depends on what you would like to get. Shorter dress is more convenient to walk in, for example. :)

  • Lotte Knops 03 of November 2016:

    Can this dress be made in fixed size 0 without a trim (just natural colour with blue lacing)? Thanks!

    ArmStreet team answered :

    If you order the dress from stock, any modification is possible as the dresses are already manufactured, sorry.
    The dress in custom size can be made with no trim, just mention it in the comments to your order.

  • Dawn 04 of October 2016:

    I just received this dress in brown with the black/red trim and green lacing (that you guys chose for me) - and wanted to say I am INCREDIBLY happy with it! It fits me very well, and you even shortened the arms perfectly. The dress is beautiful and I can't wait to wear it this weekend at my local faire. Thank you so very much! The brown/green combo is beautiful, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking. :)

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Wow, great to hear from you! Thank you very much for your feedback, we`re really happy the dress fits you. Have a great time at the faire!

    And always welcome back to ArmStreet! ;)

  • Jennifer Liu 28 of June 2016:

    Hi there! I'm interested in the Sunshine Janet dress. I plan to wear it to a upcoming renaissance faire and halloween, but size 8 is not in stock. While I have not decided on the details such as trim yet, will you be able to make a Sunshine Janet in 8? I hope to hear back from you soon, and I'm happy to make a deposit if needed.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    All the items which are not available in stock you can order in cusom size. If you do so you can choose a fixed size 8 or enter your measurments and in this case the dress will fit you in a best way as it will be made specially for you. Also in this case there are more options for material and the trim.

  • Love 25 of June 2016:

    Hi does the lacing come with metal rings? If so. Can I have it so the lacing run thru fabric loops instead?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Yes, the lacing goes with the metal rings on this model. Unfortunately we don`t make it with fabric loops, but we can make it with no loops, so you could put them there by yourself, if you`d like to.

  • Isabelle 25 of June 2016:

    Does this dress work without undergarment? Is the fabric thick enuff to look well on without?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Originally this tunic is meant to be worn with a surcoat. We produce this tunic of a linen flax which is thin enough, and if the color is white or natural it can see-through on the sun. So if you plan to wear this tunic as a separate dress, it`s better to choose a colored one.

  • Lisa 09 of April 2016:

    Hi. I wonder when this dress vill be available in size 12? And if I have to pay extra if I want the dress in blue or midnight blue in fixed size?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    To date we don't have any accurate info about restocking time for this item, sorry.

    Yes, if you want this dress in different color - please order it in custom size, we have it in stock in Natural color with blue trim only, sorry.

  • Alisa Koebel 20 of October 2015:

    Hello, I am looking at the Sunshine Janet tunic (without the surcoat). Can that tunic be worn alone without being too transparent and showing undergarments (such as bra)? Is it opaque enough to be worn as a dress on its own? I am particularly wondering about the natural linen (as pictured on the model) and brown colours. I am also wondering if it is possible to make it without trim for a plainer, more everyday look. Thank you.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Natural and brown color flax linen that we use for this tunic are not transparent, please do not worry.
    Of course, the tunic can be made without trim, simply add a comment to your order.

  • Maysa 02 of August 2015:

    Is there any way to have trim like that of the lady of the lake dress if not what would you recommend.

    ArmStreet team answered 03 of August 2015:

    Can be made with narrow Lady of the Lake trim for $20 extra, simply add a comment to your order.

  • Shannon 29 of April 2015:

    I love love love my sunshine Janet dress! I will never buy another cheap costume again! The dress looks great, I'll be able to dress it up or down. ThAnks so much!

    ArmStreet team answered 30 of April 2015:

    Great, thanks for your amazing feedback, Shannon! Always welcome back!

  • Anne 19 of April 2015:

    Hi, could you please post a picture of the combinations yellow dress with blue trim and violet dress with blue trim? I have a hard time visualizing it and am wondering if this would work at all? Are these fabrics light or dark tones of yellow/violet? Also, what do you think of white or silver lacing with that? Thank you very much! :) I love your clothes!

    ArmStreet team answered 20 of April 2015:

    Here are the swatches of yellow and violet flax with blue trim. We recommend gold lacing for the yellow dress, and black or silver lacing - for the violet dress.

  • Dom 15 of April 2015:

    Hi! What color of trim and back lacing do you recommend for the dark blue dress?

    ArmStreet team answered 15 of April 2015:

    Midnight (dark blue) flax dress will look great with blue trim and black or silver synthetic lacing. More contrast combination with red braid and dark red lacing looks very impressive. Welcome!

  • Rina 02 of April 2015:

    Hello! Wondering if you guys could pre-wash the linen before putting the dress together so it does not shrink. Or is there a way to wash this without it shrinking all that much? Say hand-washing? Thanks, Rina

    ArmStreet team answered 03 of April 2015:

    We use only not pre-shrunk linen, sorry. Hand-washing is allowed but not required, the dress is machine washable. Shrinkage can be avoided by following our simple care guidelines. Also we always add allowance for shrinkage of linen.

  • Jolynn 22 of March 2015:

    It is hard to picture what this dress would look like in a different color- I was thinking about ordering it in brown flax with brown trim and dark red lacing. Does that seem like a good color combination? Or possibly green flax with brown trim and dark red lacing. Also, someone else asked if the neckline could made wider-how much wider could it be made? Thank you!

    ArmStreet team answered 22 of March 2015:

    Both versions will look amazing, green dress with red lacing and brown trim will be slightly brighter. The neckline can be made slightly wider, for about an inch or so (~2.5 cm).

    I was wondering if sunshine jane dress could be ordered w/o the lacing hoops on the sleeves

    ArmStreet team answered 02 of December 2014:

    Can be made without lacing, then the sleeves will be not so tight-fit, something like sleeves of “Knyazhna Helga” chemise.

  • Katelynd 02 of November 2014:

    Hi, I'm interested in purchasing 'Sunshine Janet' Clasical Medieval dress with lacing. But I would need the dress for an event at the end of November and I live in Australia. Would it be possible to have it shipped out in time? Judging by the size chart I'd be a size 2 or 0 which seems odd? In Australia I'm a size 8 or 6. Is this correct? Thanks, Katelynd

    ArmStreet team answered :

    We have to use express delivery for guaranteed arrival in time.
    Please specify your full height, chest and waist circumference, so we could assist you in choosing the right size.

  • Kristen 30 of October 2014:

    Do the in-stock dresses come with the blue trim?

    ArmStreet team answered 31 of October 2014:

    Yes, fixed size dresses are natural color with blue trim.

  • Radhika 20 of September 2014:

    Hello, I was wondering if this dress could be made with a different color of lacing. Thank you.

  • Nina 09 of June 2014:

    Hi! Is it possible to order this dress with trimming on the neck area? And is it possible to make this area wider aswell? I was thinking about ordering this dress with the "mistress" corset, do you think they will go well together? Thank you for making such lovely dresses!

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Wider neckline - doable, to add trim on the neckline - $10 extra, simply add a comment to your order.
    This tunic works good with the “Mistress of the Hills” corset, you're welcome!

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Fixed size dresses come in natural color. Available sizes are shown at the top of description ("in stock" tab).
    Can be made to order in brown color (custom size). We don't have any gray linen, sorry.

  • Heidi 21 of February 2014:

    I am considering ordering the natural flax that is shown; however, my concern is cleaning/staining. The festival near us can get dusty. How easy is this fabric to clean? How visible would dust be on it? Thanks!

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Being at the festival you can clean off dust using a brush, then rinse the clothes in clean water and set it out to dry in shade. Also here are our standard care instructions.

  • Riognach O'Geraghty 19 of January 2014:

    HI, I am very, very interested in purchasing your "Sunshine Janet" dress, and I have a couple of questions: Is the dress fitted through the torso - unfortunately I'm carrying some extra weight at the moment and prefer to be comfortable, not constrained. IS the green flax a light or dark green? I'm assuming that you do ship to Australia? Thanks very much Rhi

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The tunic is not tight, plus back lacing allows to make size adjustments easily.
    Green linen is shown in "Forest Princess" and "Autumn Princess" dresses - it's emerald green.
    We ship to Australia, we do ship worldwide - you're welcome!

  • freyja 14 of December 2013:

    such a beautiful dress! Is it possible to have this dress without the trim? and how much will that cost?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Thank you! This dress w/o trim will cost $10 less. Please email us at, and we'll send you an invoice.

  • Cyndi 13 of November 2013:

    are the sleeves on the flax linen sunshine dress detachable?

  • Beate S. Rudaitiene 17 of February 2013:

    Hi. I am thinking to buy this dress (sunshine janet). I have two questions: Is the linen washed? I am a bit worried that it will shrink if I wash it. The color on the picture is that the natural flax color, or is it white? Kind regards, Beate S. Rudaitiene.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Linen is not pre-washed. Model wears "natural" color tunic.

  • Kaitlyn 07 of February 2013:
