"On these..., who had the bodies of women, nature bestowed the souls of men"
Saxo Grammaticus (c. XII century)
Traditional T-shape linen tunic decorated with contrast accents, exclusive trim and colored jute and woolen cords. 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 tunic and narrow trim with traditional Scandinavian ornament. Hem is also decorated with two rows of trim (specially designed for this costume), contrasting fabrics, woolen cord matching the trim and jute cord matching the ornament on the trim.
All these details and accents will make your character expressive and unique and will make you feel a dozen centuries younger.

LOVE this dress! I had a custom size made to fit my custom body, and I'm so glad I did! It was totally worth the few extra pennies to have something that I knew would not only fit, but fit well. My whole family is slowly amassing an Armstreet wardrobe, and our Armstreet clothes are everyday wear, not costumes. The quality and beauty of these garments is too high to sit in a closet for most of the year.
Absolutely lovely dress and is a Vikings dress for Halloween coming up, I get a little bit excited about it, no who am I kidding, a lot! Am wondering though does dress come in a green (emerald colour) or blue would be nice as well, thank you.
Dear Kellie, this dress comes in natural and olive green linen only, sorry.
Gorgeous garment. Fits comfortably, and the material is perfect for transitioning through seasons. I look forward to wearing it my events this year. Thank you for creating such beautiful garments.
Do you have any larger sizes than size 12 ready to ship in Eydis the Shieldmaiden tunic or Ingrid the Hearthkeeper tunic/apron? The event is July 20.
Dear Liz, our size chart differs from the standard one. Kindly send us your bust and waist circumference so we could select the right size for you.
What color is the olive trimmed in? Is it the same as the natural flax?
Hi Mikaela, the olive green tunic is shown with wine red linen accents.
Dear Wonderful Armstreet I have ordered from you before and have been very happy with your garb. I should like to order the Eydis shield maid tunic in olive green. Do I need to re-measure or do you have them still on file?
Hi Jacki, we have your measurements on file. Please simply leave a comment to your order that measurements have not changed.
Amazing tunic. Customized just for my wife. She loves, loves the black and the custom trim. Fits perfectly. Thank you much!
Hello, will the belt be available anytime soon ? :)
Hi Manon, yes the belt will be available for purchase very soon :)
Hi, is the necklace the model is wearing in the grey version photos available on the website? I love it!
Hi Emily, it will be available for purchase soon :)
Just for clarity, the models are wearing the Eydis the Springdancer undertunic beneath the dress, correct? The dress description didn't mention it and I was wondering where the ties at the collar we're coming from.
Hi Alaina, yes the model is wearing underdress chemise that can be found here: https://armstreet.com/store/medieval-clothing/viking-linen-undertunic-chemise-eydis-the-springdancer
When you say it’s 148 cm long is that from the collar?
Hi Luanne, it's total length of the dress from the top of the shoulder to the hem.
Looks as if I’d wear a size 2 but I do not see a length for the dress. What would the length be for a size 2 -eydis-the-shieldmaiden? Thank you
Hi Luanne, the dress is 148 cm long. You may order custom size dress and it will be made as long as needed.
Would it be possible to get this dress in a dark red?
Hi Elizabeth! This particular dress can be made in natural or olive green linen only, sorry.
Hello, I treated myself to the Secret Garden dress last Christmas and I love it to pieces! Now I have my eye on Eydis. Now I know this one is designed to be shorter but could you tell me the hollow to hem length please? I am 6' tall and, although I like the slightly shorter look, I don't want it to come to my knees. Thank you! Love your work!
Hi Ariel! Please simply select custom size option of the dress and leave a comment to your order with the desired dress length.
Could I have this tunic made full length? I'm hoping it would work with the Ingrid Fire Keeper Apron to give me another look.
Hi Michelle! Yes, we can make this tunic as long as needed. Please simply select custom size option for the dress and leave this request in the comment to your order.
I got this dress and the chemise the other day I am beyond happy with them both! The quality of this dress is amazing and it fits wonderfully! Now I just need a spear and shield! :-) Thanks again for making such a wonderful product!
Thank you for your wonderful feedback! We are really happy that everything arrived safely and fits you. :)Always welcome back to ArmStreet!
Hi, I am interested in the Eydis the Shieldmaiden dress as a present for my wife. She is 5' 3" tall. Would an in-stock size be too long for her? Thanks, Bill
That will be such a great present! :)Yes, we'd recommend ordering a custom made dress as the fixed sized dresses are made for the full height 5' 6" (168 cm), should fit fine to the full height 5' 5" – 5' 7" (165–170 cm).The custom made dress will be made according to your wife's measurements and will fit her the best.
Hello Ye talented Armstreet Team!! Would it be possible for you to post a pic of a swatch of the olive flax linen so I can get a better feel from it? Thank you so much
You can see how the olive green flax looks here. Thank you for your kind words! ;)
I was wondering if the Ingrid dress could be made with the olive green flax and the Eydis trim as I like the length of the Ingrid dress better or If they're the same are you're able to make the Eydis tunic longer. Thank you from a lover of your clothing!!
The Eydis tunic can be made longer, just let us know the desired overall length from the shoulder seam to the bottom hem. You may add this info to the comments section.
Do you have a larger swatch of the olive green linen?
You can check the colour on these photos (these are our Viking Linen Pants "Eric" made of the Olive green linen):- https://armstreet.com/catalogue/full/viking-linen-pants-eric.jpg;- https://armstreet.com/catalogue/full/viking-linen-pants-eric-7.jpg;- https://armstreet.com/catalogue/full/viking-linen-pants-eric-8.jpg.
I love the design of the dress, but is it possible to make it shorter so it resembles a classic tunic? I want this design but I prefer tunics to dresses.
Yes, the price will be the same. Please add the desired length in the comments to your order.
Great looking products but . . . what do you do for plus size people. People sizes do not stop at size 12. I only glance at your site occasionally because there is nothing here for me. I shall keep up the ocasional checking in.
Our sizes are different from European, UK and US size systems. Please check our size chart to make sure that none of our fixed sizes fits you.
Also you can always choose custom made dress - just switch to the "Custom size" tab and enter your actual measurements so the dress will be made specially for you.
Hi there guys, Was just wondering the care instructions for this wonderful dress? It is all Linen, will it shrink when washed..."hot or cold wash" Hand wash? Thanks heaps
Please check our Clothing care guide. It's machine washable, you can use machine wash in the delicate mode at a temperature no higher than 30 degrees (30°С=85°F). Presoaking is not recommended. To prevent color fading, use detergent for colored laundry. Do not use bleach. Do not use hot tumble drying. To avoid shrinkage use the shortest spin cycle and dry items flat, away from sunlight. Clothes made of linen is easier to iron when fabric is slightly damp. Linen requires the iron to be on the medium to high heat setting. Turn the garment inside out to protect it from the heat of the iron.
My dress arrived today I LOVE IT!!!! Thank you so much, the quality of the fabric is just beautiful....thank you will definitely be ordering from you again...Big happy smiles
Thank you so much for your kind feedback! We feel happy when we receive such reaction on our work! We are sure you look amazing in the dress! You are always welcome back to Armstreet :)
The beautiful, green "Ingrid" tunic, and splendid apron, arrived two days ago, and I am delighted with them. I do have a question: how much shorter is "Eydis", than "Ingrid"? They appear to have similar lines, only that the former is not so long as the latter. Is this an accurate assessment? Many Thanks.
Great, thanks for the feedback! Yes, the Eydis tunic is 2 in (5 cm) shorter than the Ingrid tunic, you're right!
Hello, Which color is on the bottom trim, wine? Can the dress be made in this color? Also, is there another color for the trim or is it only available in the one color? Can this dress be made longer like Ingrid dress? Thank you for all your beautiful dresses! I get many compliments on them at events.
Hi Sarina! It is burgundy linen along the hem. Yes, we can make this dress in custom color but it should be confirmed with our designer first. Yes, we can make this dress longer if custom size option is selected. Please simply leave this request in the comment section to your order.
Hi there, I am just wondering which belt the model is wearing in the pictures for the Eydis the Shieldmaiden dress?
The model from pictures wears Viking Birka Belt. Happy shopping!
I received the dress today!! :D It fits overall and it's pretty awesome!! I appreciate the hardy material it's made with, too; good quality. Can't wait to show it off... Thank you. :)
Thank you for such a warm feedback, Tiffani! We're very happy that you liked the dress, thanks for your kind words!
It is I, once again, and I thank you for your indulgence. In which colours is the Eydis tunic available? Is it possible to order the Eydis tunic with the Ingrid tunic's trim? All the best- Bríghid
Hi Bríghid! Yes, we can make this dress with Ingrid trim and customize the color for you. Please contact our support team for more details.
Weren't there any plus size medieval ladies?
Hi Wanda! This dress can be made in plus size, if custom size option is selected.
Oh I want this dress! And yet during the renissance faire in my state this year I will be two months post having my first baby. I've no clue what size I will be at that time! Grr, I've have the monies now too, dang it.
I received this as a christmas gift today, I wanted to say first off it is amazing!!!! The workmen ship and quality of your garments are like nothing I have ever felt. I did not want to take it off once I had it on. Thank you so so much for the incredible dress! It will be getting lots of use and love from me.
We're very happy that you liked the dress, thanks for your kind words, Chantal! Best wishes to you this holiday season!
Why do you not carry larger sizes on anything? I would love this in a size 16 or 18
Our standard size range is limited to the size 12 for technical reasons, sorry. Most of our items can be made in accordance to your measurements, just switch to a Custom size tub in the description of item.
Hello! It's me again (it's like my fifth message in two days) (It's a hard decision to chose one garment off your selection) Ok so her's my question. I would like the Eydis the Shildmaiden dress in midnight flax and as long as the Ingrid dress. Is there extra for it? Thanks!
Thank you! No extra for this upgrades, simply order the tunic in custom size and mention preferable color and length in a comment to your order. Welcome!
Can you tell me if you sell the spear featured in the Shield Maiden photos? It would make a fabulous photography prop. Thanks
