Women’s Linen Shirt

Short Medieval Chemise

Based on a variety of XV and XVI century shirts, this short chemise combines the best of all of the designs we researched to create a versatile shirt that will be a staple in anyone’s festival garb. It was made to go with our “Dark Star” collection of beautiful feminine armor and gambesons. This collection is meant for anyone who is looking to make a style statement and dress in a more masculine fashion!

There are a number of different uses for a shorter chemise, the first being that it allows people with feminine body types to still dress in a masculine way. Medieval men’s clothing doesn’t usually fit female body types very well, and it is rare to find something that has been designed to be flattering and comfortable. This shirt can also be used as a sleeping dress and would be a great medieval alternative to a traditional nightdress. As a third option, this can be worn as a regular chemise during the summer when you need something to line your arms and neckline, but don’t want to be weighed down or heated up by additional bulk around your skirts.

This shirt has a gathered neckline with many delicate pleats, which come together with two ribbon. The shirt is not low cut, but it is also not high. The sleeves puff out and come to a close at the wrists with cuffs that also have many beautiful pleats. This shirt is very functional but also has breathtaking finishing and fine details, including very well finished seams and edges.

Made from soft 100% fine flax linen, this shirt is an excellent first layer. Our fine linen is soft and breezy, wicking sweat and also providing some natural insulation on colder nights. Linen is a fantastic fabric that softens up with time, setting into lovely wrinkles that give the piece character. Linen also tends to relax as you wear it, shaping to your body perfectly as it stretches and moves. This shirt is the perfect base layer for anyone looking to build a costume that is both masculine and feminine.

  • Robin 30 of October 2022:

    Hello, this looks lovely like all of your products! I was wondering about the neckline- it seems quite broad like a boatneck. Is it possible to get this shirt with something closer to a crew or jewel neckline instead? Thank you!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, the neckline cannot be altered, sorry. 

  • Caitlyn 15 of January 2022:

    Hi! Just wondering - since this looks to have a very billowy fit, would the size 12 potentially fit someone a bit larger than the measurements listed for that size (I'm a US size 18)? As someone plus-sized, I really wish the sizes offered were a bit more inclusive in general. Thanks!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, yes, this chemise would definately fit even if the measurements are bigger than our size 12. 

  • Rachel 06 of January 2022:

    I know that linen can be a tricky fabric to wash, and since this garment will lie next to skin I wanted to know if this shirt can be machined wash on a low temperature setting? Or would it be hand wash only?

    ArmStreet Team:

    For the thin linen we recommend hand wash only. 

  • Kagey 02 of July 2021:

    I understand that the pants aren't for sale. What I don't understand is, after all these inquiries on them, why you don't produce them for sale?! I would so buy these!

    ArmStreet Team:

    It is not possible to make these pants remotely to fit well, unfortunately. 

  • Maev McOllthair 08 of July 2020:

    Everyone has asked if the pants are for sale (myself included). We have all been told that they were custom made, and will not be for sale. Is there ANY chance of directing us to the pattern used to make them, so that we may make our own, because these pants are AMAZING!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Unfortunately, we cannot share or sell the pattern, sorry. We made these pants once exclusively for the photo shoot. 

  • Nicolina 26 of June 2020:

    Is the color modeled the white or the natural linen? It seems to fall between the two sample shades. Thanks!

    ArmStreet Team:

    It is natural color linen. 

  • Jackie 03 of February 2020:

    Where did you get the black pants pictured here?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Jackie, we made them for the photo shoot only, we do not sell them, sorry.

  • Brooke 24 of January 2020:

    Where did you get those pants? Are those available? I love them.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, the pants were made once for the photo shoot only. They are not for sale, unfortunately. 

  • Sarah 08 of January 2020:

    Hello! I was wondering if there were any plans to make the pants the model wears available for purchase at some point in time? They really pull the whole look together.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Sarah, we won't make these pants for sale, unfortunately. 

  • Jenn 04 of January 2020:

    Hi! This looks amazing. I saw on the sizing that the default is designed for those who are gifted with a height of 5'6. I, unfortunately, have the trouble of being 5'2 and was wondering if I should get this custom made? or if it would fit a shorter torso length anyways? I'm not sure, new to this site, but everything looks fantastic.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Jenn, It should fit you in fixed size. 

  • Jenn 04 of January 2020:

    Oh! Follow-up question. Can this be worn on its own (as shown in the photos)? I'm hoping I can wear it as is and not just as an (admittedly beautiful) underlayer.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Yes, it can be worn on its own. 

  • Kimberly 28 of December 2019:

    Any chance those pants will ever be available on here?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello Kimberly, we won't sell them, unfortunately. 

  • 22 of December 2019:

    What about the light linen(?) pants in the photo array? The photos with the model overlooking the cliff? Do you sell those?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, we do not sell these pants, sorry. 

  • Cam 28 of November 2019:

    Okay, I realize I'm late to the party but those pants are AMAZING. Are you sure there are no plans to produce them in future? *puppy eyes*

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Cam, unfortuntely, it is not possible to make these pants remotely. 

  • Amelie 18 of November 2019:

    All I want is those pants!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Unfortunately, the pants are not for sale. 

  • Francesca Batchelor 13 of October 2019:

    Ugh all I really want are those pants! Please make them they’re beautiful! Can’t find any good quality pants for my costume as a female.

  • Bonnie Mosley 01 of October 2019:

    My God I'm in love with those pants! It's a pity you won't produce them. I'd buy them today.

  • Tina 18 of September 2019:

    Those pants are beautiful! i wish they were for sale!'s hard to find good women pants for larps...

  • Leeandra Booth 17 of September 2019:

    Where in the world do we get our hands on these pants? I want them so badly, they are gorgeous.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Leeandra, the pants were made once for the photo shoot only and we won't make them to order, sorry. 

  • Scott 17 of September 2019:

    Wear do I get the Black Leather pants that she is wearing in with the linen shirt? My wife really wants a pair.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Scott, the pants are not for sale, unfortunately. 

  • mags 11 of September 2019:

    the shirt is beautiful hope you do more of these for women in other styles, can i wear it with a corset or will that damage it?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Mags, sure, you may wear it with corset.

    Good fit. Well made. Perfect for what I needed.

  • Mina 26 of February 2022:

    Lovely! comfortable and beautiful quality. A little big for what i expected but overall great!

  • Tiffany 30 of January 2022:

    This shirt is loverly and very comfortable. I did put it in the washing machine because it was quite stiff and a little scratchy straight out of the bag. I hung it to dry and it only took about 15 hours to fully dry even I my tiny, chilly, damp, apartment. It was much softer after that. My only real complaint is that the ties really don't stay tied very well. The linen is kinda slippy and works itself loose very easily. A double knot does hold it closed longer. In general I tend to enjoy late Victorian, early Edwardian styles so I paired it with a narrow(er) walking velvet walking skirt I made. This top has amazing range and flexibility for historica and modern wear.

  • Kat 08 of November 2021:

    The shirt is very well made. Every seam and pleat is perfect, and the fabric feels very nice on the skin, it really feels like wearing a work of craftsmanship. Also the round neckline looks quite flattering, even on a small bust.

  • Maev McOllthair 08 of July 2020:

    Do you sell these pants? If not where can they be acquired to complete this look?

    ArmStreet Team:

    We do not sell these pants, sorry. We made them once for our model only for the photo shoot only. 

  • Jessica 13 of May 2020:

    Ordered this for a friend and now I want to get one for myself, too. Nicely made shirt. My friend was impressed, and she knows way more about making costumes than I do!

  • Ann Marie 12 of May 2020:

    The moment this chemise went live, I knew I had to have it. I especially love the pleated neckline and sleeve cuffs. It is really comfortable to wear as a costume piece and as an everyday top. I styled it for a Musketeer look, a peasant look, and a Thumbelina look! I'm really happy with this chemise. I got it in white fine flax. I do need to wear nude coloured underwear underneath, but that's no big deal. It's a fantastic piece to wear during sunny days because it's light, airy and covers the skin. I was worried that it might not be long enough when I purchased it, but as usual, my concerns were for nothing. It came just passed my hip bones. The perfect length. Easy to tuck away or just wear free flowing.

  • Kari 18 of April 2020:

    I have long awaited the time that I could make this purchase. This beautiful chemise is brilliant and perfect. Thank you so much. I will certainly buy more linen shirts in the future.

  • mags 23 of January 2020:

    my Linen Shirt Chemise came today quality is brilliant such Narnian glamour also very pirate chic jack sparrow would love it, it fits perfectly and it is very beautiful, cant wait to wear it with my skinny trousers which do look similar to the ones in the picture with the laces on the legs, i could wear one of my corsets with it i'm thinking of ordering another thank you armstreet this is brilliant and beautiful

  • Aniella 18 of January 2020:

    Love this shirt so much I had to buy another one! Perfect loose fit, high quality. And I feel like a fantasy heroine when I wear it, which is the ultimate compliment tbh :D Obsessed.

  • Ann Marie Burke 17 of January 2020:

    I ordered this when it first got released. Since it was newly released, I figured it would be very popular. And indeed it was! It took it a while to arrive, but when it did I was delighted. I sent an email to Armstreet checking in if everything was okay and they explained that there were a lot more orders than anticipated, so production was taking longer than anticipated. This put my mind at ease. I just had to be patient. I got a size 4 in the white linen option. I'm 5'7", 31 inch waist, 41 inch hips. The shirt arrived in a plastic covered parcel, inside a linen bag. So it was well protected. It fit perfectly. I was very impressed with the detailed pleating around the neck and wrists. I was concerned that the shirt might not be long enough to tuck into pants before it arrived, but my mind was laid to rest once I put it on. I have a long back, and it reached an inch passed my pelvis. The material is a little transparent if you get the white linen, so I recommend wearing nude coloured underwear underneath it. I have worn this shirt a few times since it arrived. It always gets complimented on as something a Musketeer would wear, which is a look I can get onboard with!

  • Suzanne 31 of December 2019:

    Really a great looking shirt, I love this style! The whole collection if fabulous!
