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

Saxo Grammaticus (c. XII century)

Chemise “Eydis the Springdancer”

Viking natural linen undertunic

Viking outfits silhouettes of warriors and women didn't deffer a lot. But we did our best to bring beauty of female figure into focus as far as it is possible for viking style costume.

This tunic is made of natural great quality flax linen with short front cut collar and without any decorations. Undertunic was an important part of ancient outfit which played an important role protecting body from scratchy outer garments and providing extra warmth.

Linen is a unique fabric which is extremely durable (2-3 times stronger then cotton) and it is not affected by the sun light like other fabric so linen clothing is excellent for the hot weather and as an underwear. Flax linen can absorb significant amount of moisture without feeling unpleasantly damp to the skin.

This tunic will be a great part of your ancient wardrobe and you'd better have 2 or 3 chemises like this using them as underdresses or as a night gown.

  • Kathleen 12 of June 2021:

    Hello, could an in-stock size/chemise be altered to have a deeper V cut in front (neckline)? Or would you have to make a whole new chemise for that?.. Thank you!

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, pre-made chemise cannot be altered, unfortunately. Kindly specify how deep the cut should be so we could confirm it can be custom made. 

  • Page 05 of December 2019:

    Is the color shown in the photos the white or natural? Is there a good reference for each?

    ArmStreet Team:

    It is natural color. You may see both colors next to each other here

  • Laura 11 of April 2018:

    Is this the undertunic shown under the Ingrid outfit?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Laura! Yes, this is the one.

  • Stefanie Cunningham 24 of September 2017:

    Greetings! Could the Eydis chemise be worn under the Alchemist's Daughter dress? And which chemise has more room in the biceps, Eydis or the Medieval Exclusive XIV Century Style? Thank you! :)

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Stefanie! Yes, of course, this chemise will work with Alchemist's Daughter dress. Medieval Exclusive XIV Century Style chemise has more room in the biceps due to the lacing on the sleeves.

  • Sue Chiarello 26 of May 2017:

    a question is the dress see through

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Sue! Natural linen can be a little bit transparent. However, it is less transparent than white linen that is used for this chemise.

  • Mona Sophie Kling 01 of November 2016:

    Hello, when will the undertunic Eydis be available in size 4 again, please? Thank you

    ArmStreet team:

    Restocking frames may vary, at the moment we can`t provide any accurate info when the size 4 is back in stock.
    You are always welcome to order a custom-made tunic, please note, now we are offering free regular shipping so it is a great chance to order the custom tunic and get it shipped for free. :)

  • Yvonne 03 of October 2016:

    So how would one breastfeed in this? I would have imagined feminine undergarments for a cold climate culture would allow them to stay as covered as possible while feeding their little children.

    ArmStreet team:

    If you`d like to order the chemise, we can make the slit as long as you need, just let us know how long it should be from the neckline in inches or cm. You can add this in the comments to your order.

  • Robin 14 of September 2016:

    Is this available in any other colors? Thank you

    ArmStreet team:

    The chemise is made of thin fine linen, which is produced specially for base layer clothing. It's available in Natural, White and Black colors, other colors and fabrics are not available for the chemises.

  • April Casler 28 of July 2016:

    Is the linen of Viking Linen Undertunic Chemise “Eydis the Springdancer” dye-able?

    ArmStreet team:

    Basically dyeing is acceptable, we dye linen ourselves sometimes, but we can not provide any recommendations or guarantees, sorry. Please note, 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.

  • Annika Malmø 22 of April 2016:

    Question: I'm assuming you use slightly different types of linnen for your chemises. Which (of the open-necked versions) would you say has the softest/lightest/least stiff fabric? I'm looking for a simple chemise to double as a LARP nightgown (for sleeping), and the only one I have is made of a slightly stiffer/thicker fabric that crinkles and can get too hot. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you in advance, Annika

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Annika, all our chemises are made of a light thin linen that differs from the one that we use for our dresses. We can also offer you Found Princess and Snow White chemises that are made of marquisette. Marquisette is a very light and transparent fabric that is made of silk and cotton. 

  • Edie Locke 09 of December 2015:

    Hello, Can the chemises be made in other colors? If so, are those fabrics also linen? Thank you.

    ArmStreet team:

    Most of the chemises are made of thin fine linen, which is produced specially for base layer clothing. It's available in Natural, White and Black colors, other colors and fabrics are not available for the chemises.

    I already have one of these chemise’s in natural flax colour & it’s such great quality I bought a second one. They wash perfectly and wear really well. Thanks guys & stay safe ❤️

  • Deanna Beck 03 of February 2022:

    I bought the white chemise the quality and weight of the linen is fabulous . I certainly would buy from them again and would recommend them to any reenactor. It is great for renaissance too which I will do this summer.

  • Ann 10 of November 2021:

    I have this item in the natural flax colour. I have worn it and washed it numerous times already, and am very pleased with it. The fit is good--not too tight, but not bulky, so it lies nicely under an overdress, and the skirt has plenty of sweep at the hem. Construction is good and weight and feel of the linen is perfect for a chemise, yet not too sheer to wear alone. If you are taller, you may wish to do a custom size order; I am 5'6"/66cm in height, and it hits me just at the ankle, as an under-dress should. Definitely recommended.

  • Susan E Kirsch 03 of September 2021:

    Love it! Perfect fit, hemmed it by hand for better length.

  • Ashley 11 of August 2021:

    I love this for an underdress! Super light weight and as full a skirt as the Ingrid dress. Highly recommend, even to just add another detail to your outfit. Do make sure you size before ordering--it is true to size, so waist upwards it does fit slim (which works well for an underdress, but just a heads up if you are between sizing and don't know if you should size up or down.)

  • Emma 14 of March 2021:

    Absolutely lovely piece of clothing, light and floaty and soft while still feeling substantial. Super comfy as a nightdress, as promised.

  • Mya 06 of December 2020:

    It's amazing! I couldn't be happier!

  • Dawn 16 of November 2020:

    I really wish Armstreet would come out with some bloomers to match the men's braies. As it is, I'll be ordering the men's and see how they work. There's no way women were wandering around without some kind of garment covering their lady bits. It just makes sense if the men had a garment to serve as such, so did the women.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Thank you for your suggestion! We will take it into consideration. 

  • leanne 25 of September 2020:

    I just received my beautiful chemise fits great match with my Ingrid sandals absolutely

  • Amanda 13 of May 2020:

    I bought this after receiving my Ingrid tunic and apron. The undertunic is so fine and lightweight it didn’t add any bulk to my Viking costume.

  • Dawn 19 of January 2020:

    Super comfortable whether worn under a tunic or as a night gown.

  • Elyta Agustin 09 of November 2019:

    Got this Eydis the spring dancer on sale in natural color. Good quality linen, and well made.Very comfortable chemise.It was in stock and ready to ship. This time I had size 4 using US size chart .It fit me perfectly tho. The length just perfect for my height 5'4" tall. After first wash using gentle circle (hang dry),the linen fabric getting more soft. I'm planning to get this chemise in black color in the future. Thank you Armstreet. I'll be your returning costumer. Elyta

  • Kate 30 of October 2019:

    Amazing product! Great quality I am so happy with the way it fits me. Delivery was good I waited exactly 20 days (i live in US) I highly recommend because your price is way less that what i could find on etsy (comparable products).
