"On these..., who had the bodies of women, nature bestowed the souls of men"
Saxo Grammaticus (c. XII century)
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.

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!
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.
Is the color shown in the photos the white or natural? Is there a good reference for each?
It is natural color. You may see both colors next to each other here.
Is this the undertunic shown under the Ingrid outfit?
Hi Laura! Yes, this is the one.
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! :)
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.
a question is the dress see through
Hi Sue! Natural linen can be a little bit transparent. However, it is less transparent than white linen that is used for this chemise.
Hello, when will the undertunic Eydis be available in size 4 again, please? Thank you
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. :)
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.
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.
Is this available in any other colors? Thank you
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.
Is the linen of Viking Linen Undertunic Chemise “Eydis the Springdancer” dye-able?
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.
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
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.
Hello, Can the chemises be made in other colors? If so, are those fabrics also linen? Thank you.
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.

Love it! Perfect fit, hemmed it by hand for better length.
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.)
Absolutely lovely piece of clothing, light and floaty and soft while still feeling substantial. Super comfy as a nightdress, as promised.
It's amazing! I couldn't be happier!
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.
Thank you for your suggestion! We will take it into consideration.
I just received my beautiful chemise fits great match with my Ingrid sandals absolutely
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.
Super comfortable whether worn under a tunic or as a night gown.
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
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).
