This semi-fitted chemise is made of thin unbleached natural linen. It can be put on with most medieval dresses or even worn on its own.
Classic Gothic silhouette (typical for the European feminine fashion of the XIII-XIV centuries) emphasizes breast and waist while softly draping hips. Long and wide sleeves can be adjusted to any length up to biceps with the help of drawstring casing.

For a 5'7" person, does this touch the ground?
It won't touch the ground.
I'd love to order this in the natural white, just to start with something simple to add to at each festival I attend, my worry is- with it being white- how transparent is it? Can you easily see thru it that I absolutely CANNOT wear it alone?
Dear Lisa, white linen is transparent. We recommend to order natural linen chemise if you would like to wear it on its own.
Hi, I already have this chemise in natural fine flax linen (size 0), and thinking about ordering “The Alchemist's Daughter” dress in red burgundy flax linen, since it has detachable sleeves and offers more versatility for photo-shooting. Is it possible to wear the Archeress chemise under this dress?
Hi Svetlana! Yes, this chemise can be worn with “The Alchemist's Daughter” dress.
Hi, Just wondering if there's any way to have this chemise made shorter?
Hi Ginny! Yes, it is possible to make the chemise a bit shorter. Please simply send us desired length measurement in the comment to your order.
Is this see threw thin if worn alone?
Hi Kika! Yes, this chemise is a bit transparent, especially in white color.
Hello! :) This chemise is gorgeous! But I would like to know, is it possible to have it in...Green? Like the green of the dress called "Autumn Princess" for instance? AND with a trim on the collar?... Thank you by advance! :D
Hi Claire! This particular chemise can be made in natural, while and black colors only, sorry. Colored linen is thicker and chemise looses its original look so we cannot guarantee you will like the outcome, unfortunately.
hello just wondering the pictures shown, is that the white or natural linen?
Hi, it is natural color.
Really like this dress, however the neckline is a little to low for me. Can this be altered to be higher to cover the collar bone?
Hi Davina, we can make the neckline less revealing, but it won't be so narrow to cover the collar bone, sorry.
Do you still provide made to measure?
Hi Penny! Sure, please simply select custom size option for the chmise.
What is the sleeve biceps measurement in a size 6 of the Linen “Archeress” Chemise? Wondering if I can order an instock item or if I need to order with custom measurements.
Hello, please check our size chart for the bicep measurement of each size.
Hello! I am wondering, how transparent is the black linen used for this chemise? I have worn the natural colored version alone as a dress before, and am hoping I could do the same with a black colored one....Thank you!
Hi Stefanie! The black color is not very transarent, it can be worn on its own.
What is the colour of chemise in the photos? Thank you
Hi Agata! The chemise is shown in natural linen color.
Would you be able to fit bracers over the selves of this if you used the drawstring to shorten the selves about halfway?
Hi Jessie, please check the pictures of the matching Archeress bracer to see how it can fit.
I'm a small size 0, and would love to get the in-stock price. I notice the chemise size charts fit 0-2. I am BARELY big enough for the size 0. Is it going to be baggy?
Hi Molly! In this case it is better to order custom size of the chemise.
Will you be getting anymore of this chemise in size 6 or 8? While the sale is going on?
Restocking frames may vary, but we can always make one or another size for you for the in-stock price. Just order any size available and mention the needed one in the comment to your order. :)
How long is this chemise in sizes 10 and 12. I'm 5' 10". Thanks
The chemise in sizes 10 and 12 is 59 in (150cm) long.For your height, I`d recommend ordering customized chemise.
When will you be restocking the white chemise in size 6?
Hi, we often re-stock all the sizes and colors of this chemise. However, you may simply select pre-order for size 6 and it will be made for you personally.
Hello, is this only available in white or natural? I'd love to order in another colour
Dear Bec, black color is also possible upon request.
Would armstreet sell me "archeress" as a 30 inch top instead of a full length dress with the sleeves stopping short of the fancy flare? I'm not finding other companies that make such tops. Also, how do you put it on if it's narrow at the waist? Thanks for your consideration.
Dear Anne, unfortunately, it is not possible to make a top instead of the dress.
Hello Armstreet! With the custom size chemise, is it possible to order it with what we refer to as a "LARP hem" (slightly shorter) so that it does not drag on the ground? With much love from a person looking to play a warrior priestess <3
Hello Zari, yes of course, please simply leave this request in the comment to your order.
Hi there Just wondering if this custom size chemise can be made with the trimming (Lady hunter or similar) for additional cost? Either on the bottom hem or sleeves, or both. Thank you
The chemise can be made with the narrow Lady Hunter trim on the bottom hem for $20.00 extra.It can be also added on the sleeves, but the designer doesn`t recommend it since the trim will be too heavy for the sleeves like these.
Do you offer fabric sample? I can't decide if I want white or natural and I feel a swatch will help that decision.
Yes, we can send you up to 5 physical swatches for free, you`ll only need to pay $12.00 for shipping.
Hello, looking at your size chart I am wondering if size 0 is going to be too big in width and too small in length. Is it possible to customize the dress, and, if so, what would the costs be? Kind regards, Sophia Maria
Fixed size chemise cannot be adjusted, sorry.You can order a custom chemise, which will be made according to your measurements, just switch to the "Custom size" tab, choose the colours and enter the needed measurement into the special fields.
Hello, is the dress pictured the white or natural linen?
The model on the photos is wearing the dress in Natural linen.
Chemise just arrived yesterday and I love it as much as everything else I've ordered from you. Size 0 fits perfectly (I was a little worried as it's the first time I've ordered an in-stock item). Can't wait to acquire the rest of the Archeress outfit!
We are happy that you like the chemise and it fits! Thanks for your feedback! Always welcome back to ArmStreet!

I was wondering if the black of this chemise is not shown as "in stock" would it have to special ordered and would that be an extra charge? Thanks
Dear Shannon, black linen chemise can be made upon request. No extra charge.
Two questions: 1. When ordering size 12, since I'm 5'11", do I simply mention that to have it made longer? 2. I wear a size 11 shoe if fitting true to size, but my calves have always been large, so if I order a boot that has lacing in the back, I should measure the largest part of my leg below the knee and you can cut the leather large enough so that when I lace it up there will be no gap showing on the back of my leg?
1. If you order fixed size 12 from stock, it can not be changed. You can always order custom size and in that case the dress will be made specially for you according to your measurements.
2. Our boots are always custom made according to the measurements of the client, so there should be no problem with making boots fit you. While ordering you`ll be asked to enter the needed measurements. Please be attentive and careful providing them. Please check how to measure yourself in a proper way.
Hello, your items are truly beautiful! I would like to purchase this chemise with the surcoat “Sunshine Janet”. Is it possible to know shoulder and biceps measurements of 0 and 2 fixed sizes, just to be sure which one buy? Thank you in advance!
Dear Irene, you are most welcome to check the bicep circumference for each size in our size chart.
Hello I was thinking of ordering this chemise now to wear alone (I understand it is thin, but if you wear undergarments that are skin tone it will be less see through) . A style question, if I order this now do you think it would look ok with on of the viking aprons , if I choose to order one of those late on.
Hello, yes of course, it can be worn with viking apron.
Hi, I wonder if it is possible to order a dress in fixed size 4, but not as long as in the fixed size, or do I need to order a custom size made dress for that? Thank you in advance.
Yes, if you need shorter or longer dress, you should order it in custom size. In-stock items cannot be changed, sorry.
Hi, is the natural color less transparent then white? I'm 5'9, so I have to costume order it. Does costume ordering take longer? I hoped to have it by new years.

What size should I get? I'm 68.5 inches tall, 34.5 inches waist, 45 inches hips, and 41 inches chest, 14 inches biceps.
You need to get a custom size, since women's clothing of standard sizes is designed for full height 5' 6" (168 cm), should fit fine to the growth 5' 5" - 5' 7" (165-170 cm). Standard size items will be too short for you.
What size is the model in the picture wearing?
Model in the pictures wears the chemise of size 0. Welcome!
I typically wear a size 8 in American clothes but according to your size chart measurements, I might be a size 6. Which should I order? I see that you currently offer a size 6 in the chemise but not in the archeress dress. When will you have those available?
Please specify your measurements (full height, chest, waist circumferences), and we'll help you to choose the right size.
To date the Archeress dress is available in stock in size 6 in midnight color only. While we cannot provide any accurate information about when the size 6 in burgundy color will be back in stock, sorry.
Who is this model if that is a reasonable question? Does she go through a certain agency or was this just a chance shoot she encountered?
She's our friend, not a professional model. We have no rights to share her name or contacts, as she is not engaged in modeling business. Thank you for your understanding!
I would love to add this to my order in Size 6, if it hasn't shipped yet. Do you have it in stock?
Yes, we can add the Archeress chemise in size 6 to your package, please specify which color do you prefer - natural or white? Model from photos wears natural color chemise.
Hi! I'm 5ft 10 and wondering if the standard size will be long enough, or would you recommend doing custom sizing? Thanks.
You need to get a custom size since women's fixed size items are made for full height 5' 6" (168 cm), should fit fine to the growth 5' 5" – 5' 7" (165–170 cm). Fixed size dresses will be too short for you.
I'm wondering if you have a set of just the archeress dress and chemise available?
There is no such set, you can buy them separately, or as part of the full set with the corset.
Hola: Estoy interesada en este modelo, pero en la opción in stock no aparece ninguna talla disponible. Solamente es posible pedirlo en custom size? Gracias
Sorry, there was a technical glitch on the site. The chemise is available in fixed sizes now, welcome!
Hi, Is it possible to make the bottom end of the sleeves shorter? Thanks! :)
Shape and length of the sleeves cannot be changed, sorry. Please note, the sleeves can be adjusted to any length up to biceps with the help of drawstring casing.
Hi There, can you please advise how long it would take to make size 0 and post to Australia postcode 4213. regards Anna
Size 0 (natural color) is out of stock at the moment, so manufacturing will take 25-29 days, the same as custom size. Plus shipping usually takes 16-21 days.
Hi. I was hoping you might have some information about for your mediaval flax linen chemise that goes with the archeress outfit. I've a cosplay in mind and I would need to dye it a deep or bright red. I'm wondering if the color would matter if I am going to dye it. Such as linen might be harder than white.
Basically dyeing is acceptable, but we can not provide any recommendations or guarantees, sorry. Please note that our clothing is a finished product, and we're not responsible for the outcome of any subsequent manipulations, such as dyeing. You may dye it only at your own risk.
The size 8 you say is available, what are the msmts and color on it? And if its available would the shipping be quicker? Is there a 2-3 day possibility??
To date this chemise in size 8 is not available, sorry. Express mail takes at least 10 business days.
How does this go on? I don't see a zipper. Does it fit loose enough to just slip on over the head?
It is pullover style (no buttons, no zipper, just pull it on over the head). The chemise is semifitted.
I have this in natural flax, I must have it in white next, love itI wear it with my whole Archress collection
Do you have a size 6 in this chemise ready made, natural color? Thanks Huguette
To date size 6 is out of stock, sorry. Only size 8 is available. You can order this chemise in custom size.
How elastic is the neck line? could it possibly be worn off the shoulder?
Originally this chemise is not intended to be worn off the shoulders, the neckline is not elastic
Hi there, I just received my linen tunic and it is lovely! I would like to soften the fabric but don't want to shrink it or ruin the fabric - how can I make it a lot softer than it is now? Thank you! Irina
The more linen is washed, the softer it gets because the fibers are broken down during the washing and drying process. You may use a conditioner for natural fabrics for fabric softening. Rinse your linen dress thoroughly to avoid stiffening due to detergent residue.
Can this be made in other colors such as the wine red available in other linens?
Sorry, this chemise can be made in white, natural or black color only.
The dress is beautiful and I really like it, but how would you wash/clean the material
It's machine washable, use 40°C (104°F) water for wash in gentle mode. To prevent tarnish an alkaline solution or color safe laundry detergent should be be used. Extraction (spinning) in delicate mode to simplify the ironing. Please don't use hot drying and do not pre-soak linen clothes.
Is it possible to get the Archeress chemise in brown? The color that is available for the Archeress dress? Thanks!
Nope, the chemise cannot be made in brown, sorry.
I Love this one! But there's something I don't understand: it looks like the waist is quite nipped in, but I don't see any kind of closure on the chemise...How is it possible? is it just an effect of the photos? Is the fit loose enough too be put on without a closure?
The chemise has semilying silhouette, it's pullover style (no buttons, no zipper, just pull it on over the head). Fabric cut on the bias actually has more give/stretch to it.
What color chemise is the model wearing in these photos?
Model wears Natural color chemise.
Could it be possible to have it in cotton, and how much would it be. Thanks
Cannot be made of cotton, sorry.
This looks lovely! I do have a question, though: if I did wear this as a standalone gown as suggested, how see-through is the fabric? Would a slip be recommended?
White linen can be transparent (as it's quite thin) when you look at it in the light. But this is imperceptible if you wear a matching colored underwear.
can this be ordered in colors other than black, natural and white?
Nope, the only options are natural, white and black, sorry.
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous chemise!! I can't wait to purchase a dress to wear with it! My only question is how do you care for this piece? Is it washable or dry clean only? Care instructions would be a nice thing to include with your pieces! ~k~
It's machine washable, here is our clothing care guide.
oh, this dress is so gorgeous!!! it would be great for an Elven, Rohirric, Gondorian, or even Narnian gown!!! it looks so simple, yet beautiful. i love it.
Beautiful! Aaaaand you guys continue to have gorgeous settings!

This is a really lovely piece! I am about 5' 2.75" tall and athletic, but very curvy. I normally wear a size 6-8 in most clothing. According to the chemise size chart I am a size 4, so I was a little nervous about the fit. I tried it on and it's perfect! The torso is somewhat fitted without being difficult to get on, the skirt flares beautifully, and the hem sweeps the floor just a little. The natural color is a little darker than it looks in the sunlit photos, which is great for those of us who do not look good in white. The "CHOOSE COLOR" picture is very accurate. I love that it’s more opaque than I expected. The sleeves are gorgeous and so elegant! The entire chemise is extremely well-constructed and the fabric feels very sturdy. I showed my sister and she liked it so much that said she may also get one. This is a chemise that I think will look good on all different body types.
My first Armstreet piece and it surely won't be my last. The sleeves are so versatile and pretty. I keep finding new ways to style them. I was very curious to see how long they'd make the dress, since I'm a very tall woman, and they did it so well. Long enough but not too long, all the same length when worn, swirls around beautifully. So glad I got to send in all of my measurements to make sure it would be a perfect fit, which it really is. I couldn't be happier with this piece!
Love the sleeves and overall shape on this chemise, and how many ways you can wear the sleeves; long, gathered, ends tucked back into overgown sleeves, tucked into a belt... the possibilities are endless! The linen is very comfortable and breathable. And doesn’t add bulk under other layers. So happy with the workmanship and look of the piece; such a constant for anything from Armstreet!
Linen Chemise “Archeress” I purchased this chemise to go with the Archeress Linen Dress. I have worn it to a few LARP events as a set, as well as to a few photography sessions by itself and paired with a few of my boned bodices. The overall fit is exactly as you would expect from an Armstreet item, and the construction is as beautiful as always. The draw strings on the sleeves work perfectly to gather the length out out of the way, but also don't stick when releasing them. Thank you for all of you dedication to quality and detail.
It was my first order here and I wasn’t disappointed ! It fits perfectly even in big size and the linen feels so soft on the skin. I always want to dance and turn around when I wear it because it have a lovely flow when you’re moving. The sleeves are so pretty and can actually allow me to shoot with a bow. I is a little see-through (I get it in white) but I still can wear it by itself and it gives an ethereal effect that works even better with my costume !
this is quite simply the most beautiful dress I own
Ordered this custom-sized, twice - one in natural color and one in black. It's such a versatile piece. Of course it looks fantastic as intended under the Archeress dress, but is also truly magical on its own. (I recommend subtle undergarments, though, as the material is slightly thinner than in an overdress. But it's not obnoxiously see-through.) The drawstring sleeves are a brilliant idea, flawlessly executed, making the chemise more practical while keeping the medieval/fantasy look. If you're even considering buying one of these, I'd say go for it. You won't find anything as high-quality for the price point anywhere else.
My besties and me got this very chemise as ritual clothing for celebrating the sabbats and we fell so in love! They all fitted perfectly and they flow so nicely! We are especially in love with the sleeves! I saw a comment on the german website saying 'it is seethrough in white' I can not confirm that! We had no issues, maybe because we avoided dark underwear in the first place :)
Got this chemise in two different colours. The black one was customised with trim on the sleeves and hem to match my Mistress of the Hills corset in custom black. I use it for more of a dark/gothic vibe. Natural flax colour is perfect for my Archeress dress, but can also be modified for a steampunk outfit. It's such a versatile item, I just love it!
I have this chemise to go with the archeress dress and it is lovely. I like the drawstrings on the sleeves. I have worn this multiple times. Its even pretty and ethereal on its own.
My first Armstreet chemise. It's lovely looking and the construction is spot on but the sleeves are just as impractical in actual use as you'd guess looking at the picture. For a casual chemise I quite quickly went over t using my "forget me not" chemise instead https://armstreet.com/store/medieval-clothing/renaissance-white-batiste-chemise-forget-me-not
I ordered this in natural flax linen and it's great! I love the cinch up sleeves and how I can wear it underneath something or by itself.
I got this dress a year ago for an event and it's one of my favorite dresses. The linnen is so soft and lightweight and it's both suitable as an underdress but also worn on it's own.
I got this chemise when I got my Archeress dress and I love it! The sleeves give it a hint of fantasy but I don't find them cumbersome or that they get in my way (and I'm the type to try all the axe throwing, archery, or other games at a faire!). Overall a well made piece and one I plan to wear for years.
I originally ordered the Archeress costume, but once I put this chemise on I realized how versatile it could be. I ordered a second one! The sleeves are fun, but they can be tied back out of the way. The construction and quality is top notch. I really wouldn't have ordered another if I didn't love it! My first was custom sized, but when I bought a second I purchased it from available stock. The quality was excellent but the fit was not as great. To be clear, it still fit, but it was slightly more roomy but I was worried it wouldn't fit if I ordered a size down. I'm tall and thin. So now I know that ArmStreet really does an excellent job tailoring to your measurements for custom orders but the garment will still fit if you order from stock.
I wanted a dress that I could use as a blank canvas to add to as I went to festivals and started adding accessories. This dress was perfect. The neutral color looks good with so many colors and can be used as a base for different outfit pieces.
Absolutely love my archeress chemise now have few of them cool in summer too wearing on its own is a bonus too thankyou i truly love my archeress sets
The photos make the dress look like it is fitted at the waist, but it was very large on me and just hung off of my chest, making me look larger than I am. I am planning on purchasing a corset to wear over it that will hopefully make it more flattering. I ordered a size 6 and I have a large bust (41 inches) and small waist. The size 6 was too big on the bust as well as the waist and hips. I may also try pinning the back of the dress with safety pins.
Dear Sarah, the dress is not fitted at the waist. It should fit loose like on the pictures. Our size 6 should fit 41" bust and 36" waist. If the waist is smaller than indicated in our size chart, the dress will fit loose. In this case, we recommend to order custom size clothes.
my archeress chemise truly is out of this world and the dress they came here on Tuesday and when i was preparing them for the wash yesterday so my mum can wash them i held up the chemise its so beautiful i cant believe it they're straight from middle earth a fantasy become a reality very happy elf costumer xemags
Thank you, Mags! We are very pleased to get such a warm feedback!
Hello thought I like to Thank you if I haven't while ago for this lovely amazing chemise I absolutely love wearing it with also combined with the archeress dress and others. Thank you. Again amazing.
I bought this chemise and it just arrived today. I'm completely in love with it. The fit is amazing and so flattering (I was a little worried as I'm not as petite as the model). The fabric is a little thinner then I expected but very 'real' looking and brilliantly made. The cut and length are just perfect. And the sleeves? Simply stunning. The drawstring effect means you can wear them in everything from a pretty princess style, to a more roguish bunched up look. Stunning. Buy it now. Thank you! Love this item!
Thank you for such a detailed review, Xatonia! And always welcome back to ArmStreet!
This robe is just beautiful. Makes me want to dress this way every day!
Thank you, Katrina! Always welcome back!
