Medieval Linen Chemise “Archeress”

Gothic silhouette chemise

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.


  • 100% natural linen

Chemise features:

  • Gothic silhouette
  • Adjustable long sleeves
  • Three colors to choose from

Polina Kuptsova:

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.


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:

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:

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

ArmStreet team:

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!

ArmStreet team:

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

grazia innocenzi:

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.

Melissa J. Brown:

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.


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!


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:

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:

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:

What size is the model in the picture wearing?

ArmStreet team:

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

Sharyn Byer:

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:

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:

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.


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:

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:

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:

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!


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:

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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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.


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:

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.


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.


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:

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.


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.


What color chemise is the model wearing in these photos?

ArmStreet team:

Model wears Natural color chemise.


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

ArmStreet team:

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?

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.


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

ArmStreet team:

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~

ArmStreet team:

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


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!


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:

Beautiful! Aaaaand you guys continue to have gorgeous settings!

Katrina Lee:

This robe is just beautiful. Makes me want to dress this way every day!

ArmStreet team:

Thank you, Katrina! Always welcome back!
