"On these..., who had the bodies of women, nature bestowed the souls of men"

Saxo Grammaticus (c. XII century)

“Ingrid the Hearthkeeper” Set

Viking dress and apron costume

Making this costume we tried to accentuate the beauty of the female figure, as much as viking clothing allows it with its free and floating cut.

Tunic. Traditional T-shape linen tunic decorated with contrasting trim, exclusive braid and dyed hemp cord. Tunic is quite spacious at biceps and narrowed to wrist, sleeves make it possible to be engaged in any daily chores. Wide skirt reaches the ankle and does not "sweep" the floor, does not limit the step and emphasizes feminine silhouette.

So does the apron. An apron is a signature Viking's women garment. Viking's apron is a sleeveless overdress worn with a pair of oval brooches. We used general idea of Hedeby harbour finding reconstruction and Shelagh Lewins illustrations but slightly improved the pattern making it a bit more complicated in favor of better look and fit.

We paid special attention to decorations and trims. The neck and the sleeves of the tunic are trimmed with a contrasting linen fabric and narrow trim with traditional Scandinavian ornament. Bottoms of both tunic and apron are also decorated with trim, specially designed for this costume, contrasting fabrics and dyed jute cord.

All these details and accents will make your character expressive and unique and will make you feel a dozen centuries younger.

Please note, that fibulas are not included.

    The dress arrived and it was absolutely perfect. Fits perfectly. Very responsive customer service. Loved it so much went back and ordered the chemise that goes with it

  • Sara 26 of September 2019:

    I am in love with this dress! The fabric, the sewing.. It is everything I hoped for! I even got another colour trim which suits better for my liking. I never felt prettier! And the dress is just amazing. Wish I could post a picture to show how wonderful it twirls. I will forever recommend Armstreet to my friends for amazing clothing like this!

  • norah 28 of August 2019:

    Absolutely love this combo! Fabric is wonderful, they are really not too heavy when worn together. I got the blue dress and the green apron. My only complaint is that the green appears a bright kelly green in photos but is much darker in reality.

  • Marie 24 of August 2019:

    Best dress I've ever got so far! The details are beyond expextations, the measurements were excellent and the fabrics are the best , especially if you want to experience some winter larp events! Will definitely buy from Armstreet again and of course already suggested this wonderful site to my larp friends !

  • Lauren 17 of August 2019:

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Lauren, all prices are in USD.

  • Celeste 19 of July 2019:

    My fiancé and I are having a Viking inspired wedding next summer. Although we are going for as authentic as we can, we would like a modern twist to it as well. We will be doing a handfasting, have Viking Horns, Roasting a Pig, etc.... My question is really about a wedding dress. I am looking for something that is a little more dressed up/fancier than the traditional linen dress. I do like Costume “Ingrid the Hearthkeeper” but I am curious to know if you have anything else that would work for a more flattering look? Do you guys do any custom work at all? And possibly something that will not be too hot as it will be in the middle of June.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Celeste, kindly contact our support team with the dress you would like us to make so we could confirm we can make it. 

  • Celeste 19 of July 2019:

    Oh and I also forgot to ask if I would be able to use other colors instead of the options that you have listed, based off the list that is linked in the below comments?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Celeste, yes it is possible. 

  • Jordan 07 of July 2019:

    Is it possible to have the sleeves made 2/3 length, and stop just below the elbow instead of going all the way to the wrist?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Jordan, unfortunately, it is not possible for this tunic, sorry. 

  • Haley Schaffer 28 of June 2019:

    Is it at all possible to get the apron dress is a red color?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Haley, yes it is possible. Please simply leave this request in the comment to your order. 

  • Lise 22 of June 2019:

    Hi. If I order this in a pre-made size, and get the express shipping, will this arrive in Norway before August 10th?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Lise, yes standard shipping time to Norway is 4-5 weeks. Express shipping takes 8 days. 

  • Inger Lise 05 of June 2019:

    Hi. How would you describe the yellow colour? Is it strong clear yellow or is it more like honey/ochre? I’m asking because I’m considering a yellow apron

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Inger, our linen colors are pretty bright. You may check them all here

  • Freya 03 of June 2019:

    Would it be possible to order this with brown apron, olive green dress and regular green trim?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Freya, yes it is possible. However, the tunic won't look good with green accents that is why we do not offer such color combination. 

  • Johanme 30 of May 2019:

    Hi! I have this costume in blue and green, but I've come to wonder how to wash it? Do you have any specially recommended instructions for this? Thank you in advance.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Johanme, please check our Care Guide here. In general, hand washing is preferrable. 

  • Sarah 10 of May 2019:

    This doesn't seem to be available in natural flax tunic and brown apron any longer. Is this colour combination not available anymore?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Sarah, we have some brown linen left so you are most welcome to place the order for any color available and leave a comment to your order that apron should be in brown linen. 

  • Nuri 24 of April 2019:

    Is this still available to custom order in any color linen from the fabrics/trim page by entering it as a comment, or are we limited to the flax/blue/green?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Nuri, yes, please simply tap on the "More Colors" button to select required color combination. 

  • Juniper 29 of March 2019:

    Hi! I may be missing it somewhere, but can I ask which belt the model in the brown and yellow themed dress is wearing? And to double check; she seems to be wearing a white chemise (?) under the dress. Would it be recommended to do so? Is it anything more than an additional, possibly more comfortable layer? Or would that be considered the "underwear" of the outfit. Sorry if this is confusing, thank you!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Juniper, the model is wearing Ingrid belt. The chemise is shown in natural linen.  

  • Willow Ross 05 of March 2019:

    I have gone back and forth with all of your dresses and I have finally decided on this one but I don't see a custom size available for this dress...I am very tall and just need a little extra length. Can we do that?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Willow, this is the listing for the costume in custom size. Please simply add this listing to your cart and fill in all the required measurements at the checkout. 

  • Catherine Kiss 21 of February 2019:

    Love this dress!!!!

  • Suzi 28 of January 2019:

    Do you have pictures of the other color combinations? Could you send any to me if you do. Thank you.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Suzi! We do not have such pictures, but our support manager can take them for you. Please let us know which color combinations you are interested in.

  • Abigail 10 of January 2019:

    My apron dress and underdress arrived today. They fit perfectly, are well made, and are very pretty. I am pleased with your work and materials and plan to order more things in the Spring. Thank you!

  • Silver Tess 08 of January 2019:

    Hi - I notice on the Ingrid Hearthkeeper underdress, there appears to be ties. Are these on the tunic sold with the apron dress for the set, or is that on another underdress that needs to be purchased separately? Thank you!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Tess! The underdress chemise can be purchased separately here

  • Ceejay 02 of January 2019:

    Hi I would like to purchase the Ingrid Hearthkeeper dress & apron set in a size 4. If I go into the items individually it gives me the option to order off the shelf for presumably immediate shipping, but in the combined set it asks me to put in my measurements & quotes 54 - 57 days manufacturing time. I would like these for an event in February but don’t want to have to pay extra for ordering them separately. Is there any way you can help me please? Many thanks.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Ceejay! Please simply order the set and leave a comment to your order that it is needed in size 4 and we will ship it immediately. 

  • Jess 18 of September 2018:

    Hi Armstreet, I have a question about the 'Ingrid the Hearthkeeper' dress and apron set. I have measured myself and am a comfortable size 4 by your size charts, and am wondering if the dress and apron could be made in that size without me supplying all the additional measurements on the order page? Or is that option only available if they are purchased separately? Thanks.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Jess! Please simply leave a comment to your order that size 4 is needed and we will ship the set in size 4 for you. 

  • Alaina 18 of September 2018:

    In regards to this outfit, if I were to leave a comment in the purchase specifying the Ready to Ship size that I wear, and those pieces were in stock, would the set be shipped out quicker or would they still need to be made?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Alaina! We can ship the pre-made tunic and apron right away. Please simply leave a comment to your order with the desired size for the set.

  • Heather 12 of September 2018:

    Do you know where I might be able to purchase the viking beads/necklace?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, the viking beads/necklace was made specially for the photo shoot and not available for purchase, unfortunately. 

  • Carrie Engelke 31 of August 2018:

    Is it possible to do the tunic in a burgundy linen and the apron in green with the trim from the noblewomen's XIV century woolen dress? If so, what shade of burgundy would it be?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Carrie! Yes, it is possible to make this dress with Sansa trim. You are welcome to check all linen colors here

  • Carma 25 of July 2018:

  • Laura 11 of April 2018:

  • Melody Calvert 08 of December 2017:

    For some reason it is not letting me enter measurements. What am I doing wrong?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Melody, kindly make sure you have selected custom size option for the outfit. 

  • Brianna 21 of October 2017:

    Bought "Ingrid the Hearthkeeper" a while back and finally got to wear to a festival today! Love it!!

  • Maureen 15 of September 2017:

    Hi! can the olive linen be used with this dress? Also, can the trims be changed at all? If so, what other trims do you have?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Maureen! Yes, it is possible. Please check our trim selection here

  • Maureen 15 of September 2017:

    Oh! I also meant to ask if you can get side pockets added to the apron.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Maureen! Side pockets are not possible for this apron, unfortunately. 

  • Jo 16 of August 2017:

    Is it possible to order these without the ribbon-trim? I'd want to sew on my own cardwowen decorations.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Jo! Yes, it is possible. Please simply leave this comment to your order. 

     

  • Odin 01 of April 2017:

    Can you make this in a child's size say for a six-year-old? If so how much would that cost?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Odin! We can make it for a child if she is taller than 44 inches (110 cm)

  • Sarah 28 of January 2017:

    Hi Armstreet Is there a way to have the Viking "Ingrid the Hearthkeeper" Apron and Dress special without being limited to those 2 colours of blue and green? Or is the special just for the 2 colours? Many Thanks Sarah

    ArmStreet team:

    Sure, it is possible, just mention the preferred colour in the comments to your order.

  • Jacqueline DuChateau 10 of December 2016:

    I just bought this combo and it's amazing! One question (and I feel ignorant for asking) but how do you attach the fibula? Thanks! Jacquie

    ArmStreet team:

    The fibulas should be attached to the shoulder straps, you should first tie the straps to the special loops and then just fasten the fibulas to the straps. You don`t need to use them to attack the straps.

  • Natasja Rose 18 of November 2016:

    Can I order just the apron?

    ArmStreet team:

    Sure! The apron is available separately.

  • Sharon Allgeier 21 of September 2016:

    Is custom sizing available and what would the cost difference be? I do have my measurements.... Thank you!

    ArmStreet team:

    We make plus size clothes, please let us know your measurements (full height, chest, waist, hips, biceps). Most likely we`ll need to ask you to pay some extra as plus sizes require more fabric and work.

  • robyn 03 of September 2016:

    Can the dress be made in burgundy with a green apron?

    ArmStreet team:

    The dress can be made in Burgundy linen with Green Apron, please mention it in the comments to your order.

  • Anne 21 of July 2016:

    Hello! It looks like she's wearing a chemise with this dress and apron, is it the "Viking Linen Undertunic Chemise “Eydis the Springdancer”"?

    ArmStreet team:

    The chemise the model is wearing is slightly different from “Eydis the Springdancer”, it's not listed on the website yet. The chemise "Eydis the Springdancer" will fit this set very good too, as the difference is imperceptible.

  • jolien 07 of July 2016:

    I was wondering what colours of brown would the dress or apron come in or is only the one shade of dark brown. Does the trim on the dress only come in the green and blue?

    ArmStreet team:

    Yes, now we have just one shade of brown available, here's the swatch so you could see it better. As for the trim, this one comes only in green and blue, but it can be change to some of our other trims, please let us know which trim do you like.

  • Ásta Helgadóttir 29 of April 2016:

    where can I find the chemise that the model is wearing in the pictures?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Ásta! Chemise is available here

  • Bríghid 30 of March 2016:

    Is it still possible to order the apron on its own, and if so, what is the price of it? Many Thanks.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Bríghid! Yes, you are welcome to order the apron here

  • Stephanie 11 of March 2016:

    Is there an extra charge for plus sizes?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Stephanie! Yes, please contact our support team for details. 

  • Hayley 24 of February 2016:

    Can the apron be worn over a narrower dress such as the Red Elise dress, or is it too wide?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Hayley! Sure, it can be worn over narrower dress. 

  • Nicole 25 of January 2016:

    Hello! I was wondering if this dress could be ordered, either as a special order, or with notes for a different color combination? Any information would be helpful! Thanks, Nicole

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Nicole! Yes, it is possible. 

  • Natalie de Clare 25 of January 2016:

    Can this dress and apron be made from blue and green wool instead of linen?

    ArmStreet team:

    This costume cannot be made of wool, it's too thick and stiff for such a cut, sorry.

  • Mathilde 05 of January 2016:

    Hi! How wide is the trim on Ingrid and is it possible to get it on the Autumn Princess? I just have to say; your dresses are gorgeous!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Mathilde! It is about 3.5 cm wide. Unfortunately, it is not wide enough for the Autumn Princess dress. 

  • Jennifer Leahy 15 of December 2015:

    Can this set be made with any of the colors listed with the pieces as individual items? And can shipping be combined or reduced with a large order?

    ArmStreet team:

    Technically this set can be made in some different colors, but please note the following:

    • the main color of the tunic should differ from the accents on the apron;
    • the accents can be made in brown, green, blue, black;
    • tunic can be made in natural, brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow;
    • apron can be made in brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow.

    If the preferred color combination satisfies these conditions - just mention it in a comment to your order.

    Shipping of each subsequent item in your cart costs less. Just add all chosen items to your cart, and shipping rates will be combined automatically.

  • Marjolein 20 of October 2015:

    I was wondering if you have customer pictures of other colors? :)

    ArmStreet team:

    This costume has not been ordered in custom colors yet. Please note, it can be made only in certain colors, as stated in comments below.

  • Sinead 13 of October 2015:

    Well now I know what I'll be spending my paychecks on, but I've never been so excited at the prospect of not having money.

  • Luna Dove 24 of September 2015:

    In my experience linen wrinkles badly and needs to be ironed at the dry cleaners. Is this linen like that? If so what about making it in cotton that does not wrinkle badly? I so love the outfit; however do not like to iron

    ArmStreet team:

    Sorry, this costume cannot be made in cotton. Linen crumples easily, since it's 100% organic. Here are some tips to reduce wrinkles:

    • Use 40°C (104°F) water for wash in gentle/delicate mode
    • Extraction (spinning) in gentle/delicate mode to simplify the ironing
    • Remove the clothes immediately, when the last spin cycle of the washing machine finishes
    • Do not use hot drying
    • Line or flat drying is recommended
    • Steam ironing is recommended to undo wrinkling

  • avalyen 22 of September 2015:

    hello you have made amazing job making this gown set stunning I sent you photos enjoy. you will find me amongst the woods in flowers

    ArmStreet team:

    Amazing look, Avalyen! Thank you!

  • Jenny Ronchak 16 of September 2015:

    Which belt is she wearing in the photos?

    ArmStreet team:

    Model wears women's Viking belt with embossing. It's not available for order on the site yet, but should be listed soon. Stay tuned!

  • avalyen 17 of August 2015:

    hello like to Thankyou so much beautiful Ingrid hearthkeeper apron dress set beautiful colors love it as always

    ArmStreet team:

  • Ben 12 of August 2015:

    Is it possible to make the apron in red?

    ArmStreet team:

    Nope, sorry. The apron can be made in brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow.

  • Steve Kelly 07 of August 2015:

    Can the apron be made without the lacing and without the split in the back?

    ArmStreet team:

    Sorry, the apron cannot be made without the slit and lacing.

  • tove jannecke wiik 30 of July 2015:

    Can i get the apron longer in the back down to the tunic trim? Is it also possible to order it in other colors too? Both apron and tunic? The trim is then not needed if that's the only reason why not! The one you have in picture is very beautiful, there are just a few options in the color selection, that makes it difficult to order cause colors are not flattering on me Kind regards Tove Jannecke

    ArmStreet team:

    The apron can be made longer for $25 extra, but over the entire circumference. Can not be made longer in the back and shorter in front, sorry.

    The set can be made in some different colors, but please note the following:

    • main color of the tunic should differ from the accents on the apron;
    • accents can be made in brown, green, blue, black;
    • tunic can be made in natural, brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow;
    • apron can be made in brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow.

  • Jennifer Hansen 29 of July 2015:

    Is it possible to change to different linen colors for the apron and the dress?

    ArmStreet team:

    • main color of the tunic should differ from the accents on the apron;
    • accents can be made in brown, green, blue, black;
    • tunic can be made in natural, brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow;
    • apron can be made in brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow.
