Central Europe Chemise

Traditional XVI century linen underdress

This classic chemise is made of white thin batiste hereby beautifully falls off with plenty minor folds. The chemise is deeply gathered at neck, has small slit at the back seam and flowing ample silhouette. In Central Europe such shirt was obligatory for low dresses of the XVIth century to modestly hide tempting curves of the wearer. Chemise also had prolonged volume sleeves fixed at the wrist with the help of casing.

This dress is a part of our Traditional Central Europe Costume.


  • Thin batiste (or thin flax linen in “natural” colour)


  • Flowing ample silhouette
  • Gathered around the neck
  • Loose balloon sleeves
  • Flare cuff

Historically, the chemise was developed from the Roman tunica. This part of costume became very popular in Europe in the Middle Ages. Women wore a chemise under their gowns to protect expensive fabric from sweat.

Hello! I´ve long admired the kirtle dress set, but I have one question. Would it be possible to make this chemise with a square neckline instead of a gathered neckline, so that it follows the neckline of the kirtle dress more closely? Kind regards, Anina

ArmStreet team:

The neckline cannot be changed due to technical reasons, sorry.


I'm about to order the kirtle dress (fixed size) and a chemise. Do you think I'll have it by November? I'm going to a ren faire and I'd really love to wear this. I'd be willing to pay for expediting if you have that available. Thanks!
