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

Saxo Grammaticus (c. XII century)

“Ingrid the Hearthkeeper” Dress

Viking linen tunic with unique trim

Traditional T-shape linen tunic decorated with contrasting trim, exclusive braid and dyed hemp cord. Ancient costume silhouettes of northern soldiers and lady warriors did not differ much.

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

In ancient times not only clothes served to cover the body, protect from the weather and express social status, but also it served as a magical cover and talisman. Therefore, the ancient Scandinavians carefully decorated their costumes with lacing, embroidery and special decorative seams. It was especially important to “protect” all open sections - the hem, sleeves and collar - because it was believed that through these “gates” evil spirit could penetrate a person.

We paid special attention to this issue in our design. The neck and the sleeves are trimmed with a contrasting linen and narrow trim with traditional Scandinavian ornament. Bottom is also decorated with two rows of 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.

  • Jamie Algood 07 of September 2019:

    Hello, I’m wanting to order the “Ingrid the Heartkeeper” dress for my friend’s themed wedding. When I put the size 12 dress into the cart, it suddenly flips into being a custom size and changed the price. Please help!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Jamie, please note that size 12 is out of stock. It does not change your order to custom, it changes to Pre-order, which means that products will be made within several weeks. The price is changed because shipping cost is added automatically. 

  • Lotte 21 of August 2019:

    Is the dress also availlable in midnight blue instead of this bright blue?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Lotte, yes we can make it in midnight blue linen for you. Please seimply select custom size option for the dress, select any color available and leave a comment to your order with the required color for the dress. 

  • Lauren 20 of May 2019:

    Is it possible to have this dress made in black?

    ArmStreet Team:

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

  • Lotte 04 of April 2019:

    Can this be made shorter (like just above the knees) so I can wear it like a real tunic with pants?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Lotte, yes it is possible. Please simply leave a comment to your order with a required tunic length. Such custom order cannot be returned or refunded. 

  • Sivaroobini 11 of February 2019:

    Would it be possible to make this in red or dark red linen with yellow accents?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Sivaroobini, yes we can make it in red or burgundy linen upon request. For this, please simply select custom size option for the tunic and leave a comment to your order with the required color combination. Kindly note that such order cannot be returned since we do not offer such color combination by default. 

  • Katie 08 of October 2018:

    When you custom order, do you put in your measurements and the dress is made slightly bigger, or should you put in measurements slightly larger, so it fits looser?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello Katie, please send us accurate measurements and the dress will fit like on the pictures of the listing. 

  • Bec 17 of August 2018:

    Can this be made in red?


    Hi Bec! Yes, we can make it in red linen upon request but it won't look good with green viking trim, unfortunately. 

  • leanne 02 of August 2018:

    it is soo beautiful in the natural flax linen and with the yellow accent colors my next order with the matching apron with yellow i have this in blue already and apron in green but fell in love with the yellow next to my order please... stunning!

  • Lou 09 of July 2018:

    Hello, would it be possible to have this dress custom-made in a shorter version (knee-length)? Thank you!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Lou! Yes, it is possible. Kindly contact our website support for more details.

  • Jacki Frederick 07 of July 2018:

    Love the tunics and over apron. Only question is Washing instructions? Amount of shrinkage with washing of clothing or trim? Jacki in anchorag

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Jacki! Our linen is not pre-shrunk, but if you wash it with hands in warm water it will look and fit nicely for a long time. Dry cleanning is also possible. 

  • Britt 16 of March 2018:

    I'm curious about when choosing custom colors, if I chose black as the accents would the trim and knotwork still be brown or would it be black in stead?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Britt! The trim will be the same (green/blue) but the linen accents will be black instead of the brown ones that are shown on the pictures. 

  • Aino 24 of February 2018:

    Hi! Is there any chance to make this dress in burgundy colour? I'd love the combination of a green apron and a burgundy tunic.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Aino! Yes, it is possible. Please simply leave this request in the comment section to your order.

  • Letizia Castiglione 10 of February 2018:

    I am 5’ 4” and I saw that your dresses are made for taller people than me. Would it be possible to have this shorter without paying the full price custom order price? I can have the normal size 6 for everything else...I hope you can help me by just making it shorter.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Letizia! Pre-made products cannot be altered, unfortunately. However, you may purchase the apron in fixed size and it will fit since it is shorter than the tunic. The tunic should be purchased in custom size if you would like it to be hemmed.

  • Ashton Rae 31 of January 2018:

    Do you guys sell necklaces like the model is wearing in the "Ingrid the Heartkeeper" dress?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Ashton! The necklace is not for sale, unfortunately. It was created once for the photoshoot only, sorry. 

  • Ulfraudr 19 of December 2017:

    On average, how much longer do custom color/size take to ship?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Ulfraudr, manufacturing time is indicated in each listing description. For this particular tunic we need about 2-3 weeks to make it in custom size.

  • Lotte 19 of November 2017:

    Is this tunic also available in the olive flax linen from the “Eydis the Shieldmaiden” tunic?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Lotte, this tunic can be made in olive green linen upon request. However, this particular linen is more dense and tunic will fit differently.

  • Riley 26 of September 2017:

    Which trim is the model wearing?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Riley! The model is wearing Ingrid trim.

  • Fay 08 of August 2017:

    I'm 5'2, can it be made to fit my short size?

    ArmStreet Team:

  • April Casler 04 of August 2017:

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi April! Sure we can make the belt for you. Please contact our support team for more details.

  • Tess 17 of February 2017:

    Would it be possible to make a custom order of this dress without trim and contrasting color additions?

    ArmStreet team:

    The tunic cannot be made w/o trim and contrast accents, but we can suggest you making Viking Linen Undertunic Chemise “Eydis the Springdancer” of the same Blue linen as the Ingrid tunic.

  • courtney benstead 24 of December 2016:

    I was curious if this tunic could be made to reach the ground. I have 2 of your dresses already that I LOVE and I'm waiting for the amazing Archeress Set and would love this. Thank you Your a very Talented team!!

    ArmStreet team:

    Yes, the dress can be made longer, just give us the desired overall length (from the shoulder seam to the bottom hem). Please note this info in the comments to your order.

  • Katlyn Cinq - Mars 02 of December 2016:

    BEAUTIFL dress. I'm 5'9' is that to tall? Can this dress be worn for everyday wear?

    ArmStreet team:

    Our fixed sizes are made for full height 5' 6" (168 cm), should fit fine 5' 5" – 5' 7" (165–170 cm). The actual length of the dresses is 58" (148 cm) long.
    You can always order a custom sized dress which will be made according to your full height.

  • Erin 07 of August 2016:

    I was wondering if this dress could be made with short sleeves? Thank you.

    ArmStreet team:

    Basically, the tunic can be made with short sleeves, but it may require the change of the pattern. The original tunic`s sleeve is broad near the armhole and gets more narrow to the bottom, so if we just cut them, the sleeves may look weird.

  • Carol Chisholm 06 of August 2016:

    Please can I ask... Can I buy a size 22(English) in this dress? Will it cost more for a larger size? Thank you. Carol

    ArmStreet team:

    Our sizes are different from European, UK and US size systems, please check our size chart. According to our size chart seems like size 12 should fit you. You can also always order a custom size dress which will be made specially for you according to your actual measurements, to do so just switch to a "Custom size" tab, enter your measurements and choose the color preferred.

  • Anna 10 of June 2016:

    How do you put this dress on? Does it have a closure somewhere? Or does it go over the head?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Anna! This dress goes simply over the head. 

  • Ashley Carlson 20 of May 2016:

    I just received my order, and I'm wondering how I should care for it. Is it machine washable? Hand wash? Dry clean? Can it go in the dryer on the delicate setting or should I hand it up or lay it flat to dry? Can I iron it? It's a beautiful dress and fits perfectly. I don't want to mess it up.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Ashley! Handwashing is preferrable. Please dry it flat and iron the dress when it is slightly damp. 

  • B Lee 24 of April 2016:

    can this be made in other colours?

    ArmStreet team:

    Yes, this tunic (custom size, made to order) can be made in in natural, brown, green, blue, black, orange, dark blue, yellow; and the accents can be made in brown, green, blue, black. Please note, that the main color of the tunic should differ from the color of the accents. If the preferred color combination satisfies these conditions - just mention it in a comment to your order.

  • Eric Nation 13 of March 2016:

    My wife and I are both custom ordering and we are wondering if you can match the color and trim this dress with the light blue of the "eric the scout" tunic?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Eric! Yes, it is possible. Please simply leave this comment to your order at the checkout. 

  • Dan Collins 12 of December 2015:

    I love the deer pelt bag. I can't seem to see it on the site. Is it for sale and if so how much?

    ArmStreet team:

    This bag will be available on the site soon, stay tuned!

  • Adelanor 01 of November 2015:

    Is this dress longer than the Eydis the shieldmaiden dress?Is it more or less the same pattern? thanks, you make amazing garments!

    ArmStreet team:

    Thank you! They have the same pattern, but Ingrid dress is a bit longer than the Eydis tunic.

  • anya 22 of October 2015:

    can this be made without the trim? just the brown cloth border.

    ArmStreet team:

    Yes, the tunic can be made without trim, simply add a comment to your order.

  • Alexandra Manesi 02 of October 2015:

Is it possible for you to take an order, and if so, what about the cost? Or maybe if i wait for some time, are you going to produce some more 'Ingrid" dresses in this size?

  • Rowena Whaling 25 of September 2015:

    Hi. I am 5'6'' tall. How far will this dress come above my shoes. Will this be at the bottom of my ankle or near the top of my ankle? Perhaps it will be best to ask how long it is from the shoulder. Thank you. Rowena

    This is a beautiful dress. It is extremely well made with great attention to every detail. I will be ordering from Armstreet again.

  • Eszter 11 of November 2022:

    This dress will undoubtedly be one of the most beautiful pieces of my medieval wardrobe! Even with a simple leather belt it looks fantastic, the cut is perfectly neat and comfortable, nowhere too baggy or too tight (though I didn't choose the custom version), the colours are wonderful, and I don't think anyone has ever created a more beautiful trim than the wide green(blue-yellow-brown) "wild duck trim". A real masterpiece!

  • Kayleigh Pivonka 24 of October 2022:

    Great product and great customer service!

  • Guest 12 of August 2022:

    I absolutely love this dress. The quality is exceptional and it looks and feels fantastic. I will be purchasing more!

  • norah 12 of November 2021:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE all these wonderful linen dresses! Have purchased multiples in various lengths and colors. Launder beautifully and feel great! Can't buy linen like this anywhere!

  • Ashley 11 of August 2021:

    This dress is so lovely. The linen is breathable, and the detailed trim adds an amazing weight behind it. The full skirt is so much fun to move in. It is true to size, so do make sure you size yourself before ordering . I have the full set (chemise, apron, boots, and belt) and all together it is gorgeous. Highly recommend this (or practically anything from Armstreet)! (I got the Ingrid in natural linen with yellow trim, paired with the green apron.)

  • Shayla 02 of November 2020:

    This tunic is amazing! And the Armstreet customer service is wonderful as well. I had my bridesmaids order their dresses here (since it's a Christmas wedding, they wanted long sleeves), and we asked for blue with red as the contrast and the gold Celtic knot trim. The first dress just arrived, and wow is it beautiful! Before we'd ordered, Armstreet sent me small samples of several colors to compare, and they were wonderful helping me get the dresses ordered in the correct colors and so that they arrive in plenty of time. Thank you, Armstreet!

  • Debbie 19 of June 2020:

    Beautiful Dress! I just received my Ingrid dress and it is beautifully constructed. The details are better than anticipated, and the fit is great. The blue is a bright royal, exactly what I was looking for.

  • Kristina 16 of May 2020:

    Dress “Ingrid the Hearthkeeper” Yet another amazing dress in my Armstreet collection. I purchased this in a size up (in green and brown) so that I could layer a few chemises underneath, for winter events. The construction is fantastic as always, I wore it to four winter camps and (while it is broken in) still looks fantastic and is one of my favorite garments. I love it so much that it has sneaked its way into my daily clothing rotation. I generally wear a size 8 in Armstreet's standard sizes and I ordered a size 10. I will say that I prefer the length of the 10 to the 8 (since I am 5'9"), so I may start ordering custom measurements from now on. I highly recommend this garment. Thank you.

  • Stefanie 15 of May 2020:

    The natural linen looks and feels so authentic. The way it's cut, this is one of the most comfortable dresses I own. My only nitpick is the sleeves were a little bit tight even in a custom size, so if you plan on moving around a ton or swinging axes you might want to take that into consideration when providing your measurements. Otherwise I absolutely adore my Ingrid. The full skirt is fun to dance in & the trim is top notch.

  • Lieke 12 of May 2020:

    Las season, I ordered the blue-brown combination and I've fallen in love with it's deep deep blue color. The embroidery is incredibly detailed and every time I sit down on the ground like to study the patterns. The fabric is soft and thin/light-weighted, but crinkles fast. Note that the dress shrinks in laundry (even when washed hand-warm), aspecially the sleeves, so if it fit's perfectly you might consider ordering a bigger size. Nevertheless the perfect summer dress. Oh and if you are a messy eater, like I am, this dress is perfect! The stains barely show!

  • Lotte 12 of May 2020:

    I love this dress!! Got it in olive green with brown trim. Exactly what I wanted.

  • Deborah Wood 12 of May 2020:

    I have "Ingrid" in green, as well as the apron dress. I purchased these along with a white chemise for a Viking reenactment group. Excellent quality, perfect fit, comfortable, durable, and easy care. I was surprised how affordable it was. I'm visually impaired, so I truly appreciate ArmStreet's excellent customer service. (My Norwegian Elkhound is also my guide dog.)

  • Erika 12 of May 2020:

    I bought this tunic to go with my apron I also bought from here for an historical educational reenactment group I am part of to wear. I did get this tunic dress custom because I am a very tall person. This tunic dress not only fit perfectly it was very comfortable. The event was during the summer and since it was made from linen I didnt overheat. I also was working in it over an open fire... It did get very dirty with food and other dirt. I would use it to take food off the fire and wipe my hands in it. I had to wash it after every weekend and even after that it held up well.. I have owned this for over 3 years now and still going mostly strong... This dress was my most used dress I would wear. So this one got the brunt of all the event... After 3 years it just started to need repairs. It's under the arm where my arm rubs up against my body... I had to sew it but this dress has seen rain, sun, heatwaves, fire, and freezing days and I would buy another in a heartbeat!

  • Christa 12 of May 2020:

    I purchased the Ingrid Tunic Dress last year to pair with my two Ingrid Apron Dresses. My apron dresses are green and brown, so I picked the Natural linen with Yellow accents. This dress is beautiful and it pairs perfectly with the aprons! The embroidery on these dresses is beyond compare! We love the high quality of Armstreet's products! I know when I'm out in the sun, or stuck in the rain, or cooking for a friend's wedding that I don't have to worry about what will happen to my Armstreet outfits! I only wish that this tunic dress came in orange!

  • Danielle 06 of April 2020:

    I would love to see how this dress looks without the belt. Any pics of that?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, unfortunately, we do not have pictures of this dress without belt. 

  • Sophia 12 of March 2020:

    First dress I've purchased. Feels like I am wearing a work of art. Very comfortable and well made. Sealed the deal for future purchases.

  • mags 06 of February 2020:

    my fabulous belt came today very Beautiful i'm rather Pleased with its quality and elvish patterns. i'll practice tying it at the front like in the picture Well done armstreet

  • Shayla 31 of January 2020:

    I actually just ordered a second Ingrid tunic. My first one (ordered two months ago) is super comfortable and of really good quality. I've gotten a lot of compliments, and I love wearing it. The only problem is my sister also loves this dress; I'm just waiting for it to disappear from my closet and turn up in hers. :) Well, it does give me a good idea for her birthday. Thank you, Armstreet!

  • Shaun dartnell 31 of May 2019:

    The dress was amazing my sister loved it .

  • Lydia 28 of May 2019:

    I can't believe I didn't order this beautiful piece before! I've been a follower of Armstreet since day one but have never had the opportunity to place an order with them until now. And boy was I amazed beyond measure! I ordered the blue version in size 2, it arrived way sooner than expected and was so much prettier in real life. Though the pictures here are very nice, they still do not do the fabric justice. I immediately had to place another order for the chemise in the same collection. All the best from a very happy customer who will definitely be returning in the future.

  • Jacki Frederick 30 of July 2018:

    Hello  - been wearing the Ingrid outfit this month - many compliments, I spread the word about your garments.

  • Sarah 20 of June 2018:

    Just received this tunic and the matching underdress in the mail. The fit is spot even with the second layer and postage was fast even to Australia

  • Tamir  05 of January 2018:

    Очень доволен покупкой и качеством пошива. Отличная женская туника"Ингрид".

  • Kyle 18 of July 2017:

    My wife and I just received our order. She was very worried that the dress would not fit. However when it arrived we found it fit perfectly! A fantastic dress. The trim is amazing!

  • Sam 07 of January 2016:

    Just received my dress- it is BEAUTIFULLY made- no question about it. The only small problem is it is a bit short for my 175cm (size 12)frame and the sleeves also a bit short (I have pretty small- average arm length) Just be wary if you are tall- you might want to get a custom fit to make sure the lengths suits you more. Would recommend though, its beautiful!

    ArmStreet team:

    Many thanks for your feedback!

    Please note, our standard size clothing is made full height 5' 6" (168 cm), should fit fine to the growth 5' 5" – 5' 7" (165–170 cm), as stated in the size chart. For those who are taller, we recommend ordering custom size garments (made to order according to your measurements).
