Something important written here. And may be something more.
Our ancestors used chemises like this as the main element of their underwear. It is loose and fluent. The chemise is made of thin softened linen so you may wear any kind of dress over it - the thin fabric will not roughen overdress silhouette.
There is a drawstring in a collar so you may adjust decollete depth. Straight sleeves also give enough flexibility for your arms. There is a tiny eyelet in a shoulder seam which can be used to lace a biceps or upper part of a sleeve. On the front part of the chemise, there are pleats pinched on their top which emphasize trapezoidal silhouette of a chemise.

Could this be worn as part of a viking outfit? I'm very fond of those sleeves but I don't know if is authentic for a viking outfit. Thanks!
The sleeves of this chemise are actually not authentic as for the Viking outfit, they have more of the Fantasy spirit. If you need a chemise for your viking costume, here is the one we can recommend, it will fit perfectly.
I need to order this chemise in a custom size, w/o any sleeves. I need it to wear under the Witches' Halloween chemise I previously ordered. Everything I've ordered from you has fit me perfectly!
This chemise cannot be made without the sleeves at all. We can make it with short sleeves which will end at the biceps level approximately. If it works for you, please place an order via our website and mention that you would like to have short sleeves.
What is the bicep measurement for sizes 2 and 4? I have a 28" waist, but am fuller in the arms, so often long sleeves are too tight.
Here is the chart - circumference of the sleeve at the upper arm in different sizes:size 0 - 31.5 cm (12.4") size 2 - 32.5 cm (12.8") size 4 - 34.5 cm (13.6") size 6 - 36.5 cm (14.4") size 8 - 39 cm (15.4") size 10 - 41.5cm (16.3") size 12 - 44.5 cm (17.5")
Please note, these are real dimensions of the sleeves, so your biceps circumference should be at least 1.5 cm smaller. Hope this helps!
Just received this chemise in the mail to wear under my 'forest princess' dress. It's fantastic! Perfect fit, and that was ordering the fixed size! I love all the little gathering details on the neck and sleeve. Can't wait to wear it to the faire this weekend!
Amazing, thank you so much for taking the time to share your experiences! It would be great Always welcome back to ArmStreet!
Hello, I would like to know how long the arms are and the length of the dress? I have 28" long arms, and I am 5'10" tall. Will you need to make special adjustments? Thank you, Heidi 641-469-6511 CST
We reccommend ordering custom size chemise. The length of the sleeves will be adjusted to your measurements.
To place your order, switch to the Custom size tab in the description of the item, click Add to cart, then Go to cart. Please tick the preferred color, then fill in your measurements in the order form and click Checkout.
Can this chemise have a decorative trim?
Can be made with trim along the hem for some extra, please specify which trim you prefer.
Are the laces around the sleeves attached? I would like to have the option of removing them if possible. Thank you.
The laces are removable, they're threaded into small woven loops, which are sewn into the shoulder joint.
What does it mean when you ask for a measurement with a floating point?
The essence of that pop-up warning is: non-integral numbers should be written as a decimal, rather than a fraction. For example, your wrist circumference is seven inches and a half. Then write it as 7.5, not 7 1/2.
Hello, I love this chemise and would like to know if it is possible to have it made in one of the different linen/ flax colours, specifically the bright "cornflower" blue colour. Also, is it ever going to be available in "Fixed" sizes? Thank you, Sincerely, Tracy
