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

Saxo Grammaticus (c. XII century)

“Eydis the Shieldmaiden” Tunic

Viking natural linen trimmed dress

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.

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!

ArmStreet team:

Thank you for your wonderful feedback! We are really happy that everything arrived safely and fits you. :)
Always welcome back to ArmStreet!

Bill Rachal:

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

ArmStreet team:

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

ArmStreet team:

You can see how the olive green flax looks here. Thank you for your kind words! ;)

courtney benstead:

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!!

ArmStreet team:

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.

Hayley:

Do you have a larger swatch of the olive green linen?

ArmStreet team:

You can check the colour on these photos (these are our Viking Linen Pants "Eric" made of the Olive green linen):

Emily:

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.

ArmStreet team:

Yes, the price will be the same. Please add the desired length in the comments to your order.

Jacki Frederick:

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.

ArmStreet team:

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.

Lee:

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

ArmStreet team:

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.

Lee:

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

ArmStreet team:

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 :)

Bríghid:

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.

ArmStreet team:

Great, thanks for the feedback! Yes, the Eydis tunic is 2 in (5 cm) shorter than the Ingrid tunic, you're right!

Kerry:

Hi there, I am just wondering which belt the model is wearing in the pictures for the Eydis the Shieldmaiden dress?

ArmStreet team:

The model from pictures wears Viking Birka Belt. Happy shopping!

Tiffani:

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. :)

ArmStreet team:

Thank you for such a warm feedback, Tiffani! We're very happy that you liked the dress, thanks for your kind words!

Chantal:

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.

ArmStreet team:

We're very happy that you liked the dress, thanks for your kind words, Chantal! Best wishes to you this holiday season!

Leslie:

Why do you not carry larger sizes on anything? I would love this in a size 16 or 18

ArmStreet team:

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.

Gabrielle:

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!

ArmStreet team:

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!

Cindy Sears:

Can you tell me if you sell the spear featured in the Shield Maiden photos? It would make a fabulous photography prop. Thanks

ArmStreet team:

Here is the Viking Spearhead, welcome!

Frank Daniel Mahoneyburroughs:

Where do you learn these amazing skills

ArmStreet team:

It's a team work of many very enthusiastic people...

Hope Keyes:
