Medieval Linen Chemise “Archeress”

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.

  • Lisa Marie Louk 26 of July 2019:

    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?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Lisa, white linen is transparent. We recommend to order natural linen chemise if you would like to wear it on its own. 

  • Svetlana 17 of December 2018:

    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?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Svetlana! Yes, this chemise can be worn with “The Alchemist's Daughter” dress.

  • Ginny 16 of October 2018:

    Hi, Just wondering if there's any way to have this chemise made shorter?

    ArmStreet Team:

    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. 

  • Kika 28 of September 2018:

    Is this see threw thin if worn alone?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Kika! Yes, this chemise is a bit transparent, especially in white color. 

  • Claire 16 of September 2018:

    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

    ArmStreet Team:

    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. 

  • skye 20 of July 2018:

    hello just wondering the pictures shown, is that the white or natural linen?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi, it is natural color. 

  • Davina 29 of March 2018:

    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?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Davina, we can make the neckline less revealing, but it won't be so narrow to cover the collar bone, sorry. 

  • Penny 11 of February 2018:

    Do you still provide made to measure?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Penny! Sure, please simply select custom size option for the chmise. 

  • Jzhen 21 of January 2018:

    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.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, please check our size chart for the bicep measurement of each size. 

  • Sarah 09 of January 2018:

    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.

    ArmStreet Team:

    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. 

  • Stefanie 15 of December 2017:

    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!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Stefanie! The black color is not very transarent, it can be worn on its own.

  • Agata 03 of December 2017:

    What is the colour of chemise in the photos? Thank you

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Agata! The chemise is shown in natural linen color. 

  • Jessie 12 of November 2017:

    Would you be able to fit bracers over the selves of this if you used the drawstring to shorten the selves about halfway?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Jessie, please check the pictures of the matching Archeress bracer to see how it can fit. 

  • Molly 09 of November 2017:

    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?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Molly! In this case it is better to order custom size of the chemise. 

  • Mikaela 16 of October 2017:

    Will you be getting anymore of this chemise in size 6 or 8? While the sale is going on?

    ArmStreet:

    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. :)

  • Amber Fauson 14 of October 2017:

    How long is this chemise in sizes 10 and 12. I'm 5' 10". Thanks

    ArmStreet:

    The chemise in sizes 10 and 12 is 59 in (150cm) long.
    For your height, I`d recommend ordering customized chemise.

  • JJ 23 of September 2017:

    When will you be restocking the white chemise in size 6?

    ArmStreet Team:

    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.

  • Bec 17 of May 2017:

    Hello, is this only available in white or natural? I'd love to order in another colour

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Bec, black color is also possible upon request. 

  • Anne Avian 15 of May 2017:

    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.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Anne, unfortunately, it is not possible to make a top instead of the dress. 

  • Zari 04 of May 2017:

    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

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello Zari, yes of course, please simply leave this request in the comment to your order. 

  • Polina Kuptsova 18 of February 2017:

    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

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Lady 03 of February 2017:

    Do you offer fabric sample? I can't decide if I want white or natural and I feel a swatch will help that decision.

    ArmStreet team:

    Yes, we can send you up to 5 physical swatches for free, you`ll only need to pay $12.00 for shipping.

  • Sophia Maria 03 of October 2016:

    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

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Sarah A Pace 04 of August 2016:

    Hello, is the dress pictured the white or natural linen?

    ArmStreet team:

    The model on the photos is wearing the dress in Natural linen.

  • Amy 29 of July 2016:

    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!

    ArmStreet team:

    We are happy that you like the chemise and it fits! Thanks for your feedback! Always welcome back to ArmStreet!

  • grazia innocenzi 28 of July 2016:

    vorrei acquistare questa tunica che mi serve per una cerimonia che avro' il 1 settembre,mi garantite la consegna entro questa data?

    ArmStreet team:

    Se si ordina il chemise disponibili a magazzino, sarà inviato immediatamente e consegnato entro settembre, 1 di sicuro. Se avete bisogno personalizzato le dimensioni, la produzione prenderà 25-29 giorni, ma poi siamo in grado di offrire UPS trasporto espresso, che richiede fino a 5 giorni lavorativi per consegnare.

  • Shannon Stevens 14 of July 2016:

    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

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Shannon, black linen chemise can be made upon request. No extra charge.

  • Melissa J. Brown 12 of July 2016:

    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?

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Irene 04 of June 2016:

    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!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Irene, you are most welcome to check the bicep circumference for each size in our size chart. 

  • B Lee 10 of April 2016:

    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.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, yes of course, it can be worn with viking apron. 

  • mags 31 of March 2016:

    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

    ArmStreet team:

    Thank you, Mags! We are very pleased to get such a warm feedback!

  • Rita 10 of December 2015:

    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.

    ArmStreet team:

    Yes, if you need shorter or longer dress, you should order it in custom size. In-stock items cannot be changed, sorry.

  • Dassah Clayton 11 of November 2015:

    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.

    ArmStreet team:

    Model from pictures wears Natural color chemise, it can be see-through when standing against the light. When worn as a main dress, should be complemented with matching colored seamless foundation garment/underwear.

    We can make this chemise in custom size and deliver it by the New Year, please be sure to mention your deadline in a comment to your order.

  • Dassah Clayton 11 of November 2015:

    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.

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • A. Orion 27 of October 2015:

    What size is the model in the picture wearing?

    ArmStreet team:

    Model in the pictures wears the chemise of size 0. Welcome!

  • Sharyn Byer 28 of September 2015:

    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?

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Casey Ambrosini 26 of September 2015:

    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?

    ArmStreet team:

    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!

  • Susan King 11 of September 2015:

    I would love to add this to my order in Size 6, if it hasn't shipped yet. Do you have it in stock?

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • avalyen 31 of August 2015:

    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.

  • Rachel Grayson 23 of August 2015:

    Hi! I'm 5ft 10 and wondering if the standard size will be long enough, or would you recommend doing custom sizing? Thanks.

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Jessica Gilbert 17 of August 2015:

    I'm wondering if you have a set of just the archeress dress and chemise available?

    ArmStreet team:

    There is no such set, you can buy them separately, or as part of the full set with the corset.

  • Nuria Pérez 29 of July 2015:

    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

    ArmStreet team:

    Sorry, there was a technical glitch on the site. The chemise is available in fixed sizes now, welcome!

  • Incognito 08 of July 2015:

    Hi, Is it possible to make the bottom end of the sleeves shorter? Thanks! :)

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Anna Smith 28 of April 2015:

    Hi There, can you please advise how long it would take to make size 0 and post to Australia postcode 4213. regards Anna

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Ahn 20 of March 2015:

    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.

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • karyn 01 of March 2015:

    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??

    ArmStreet team:

    To date this chemise in size 8 is not available, sorry. Express mail takes at least 10 business days.

  • Diana 09 of February 2015:

    How does this go on? I don't see a zipper. Does it fit loose enough to just slip on over the head?

    ArmStreet team:

    It is pullover style (no buttons, no zipper, just pull it on over the head). The chemise is semifitted.

  • Avalyen 28 of December 2014:

    I have this in natural flax, I must have it in white next, love it
    I wear it with my whole Archress collection

  • Huguette 21 of December 2014:

    Do you have a size 6 in this chemise ready made, natural color? Thanks Huguette

    ArmStreet team:

    To date size 6 is out of stock, sorry. Only size 8 is available. You can order this chemise in custom size.

  • Tara 23 of November 2014:

    How elastic is the neck line? could it possibly be worn off the shoulder?

    ArmStreet team:

    Originally this chemise is not intended to be worn off the shoulders, the neckline is not elastic

  • Irina R 16 of November 2014:

    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

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Emily 15 of September 2014:

    Can this be made in other colors such as the wine red available in other linens?

    ArmStreet team:

    Sorry, this chemise can be made in white, natural or black color only.

  • Courtney 31 of August 2014:

    The dress is beautiful and I really like it, but how would you wash/clean the material

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Andrea Seiberl 29 of August 2014:

    Is it possible to get the Archeress chemise in brown? The color that is available for the Archeress dress? Thanks!

    ArmStreet team:

    Nope, the chemise cannot be made in brown, sorry.

  • Giulia 28 of April 2014:

    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?

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Katie 18 of February 2014:

    What color chemise is the model wearing in these photos?

    ArmStreet team:

    Model wears Natural color chemise.

  • marta 11 of September 2013:

    Could it be possible to have it in cotton, and how much would it be. Thanks

    ArmStreet team:

    Cannot be made of cotton, sorry.

  • Amanda 03 of June 2013:

    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?

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Candice 01 of May 2013:

    can this be ordered in colors other than black, natural and white?

    ArmStreet team:

    Nope, the only options are natural, white and black, sorry.

  • Khelsei 05 of March 2013:

    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~

    ArmStreet team:

    It's machine washable, here is our clothing care guide.

  • Xatonia 28 of November 2012:

    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!

    ArmStreet team:

    Thank you for such a detailed review, Xatonia! And always welcome back to ArmStreet!

  • Me 05 of September 2012:

    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.

    ArmStreet team :

    Thank you!

  • Gloria Alvarado 20 of January 2001:

    Beautiful! Aaaaand you guys continue to have gorgeous settings!

  • Katrina Lee 20 of January 2001:
