Love that it isn't in American sizes as it fits well on a larger sized woman. The quality is impressive and I hope to soon have a reason to wear it in public.

In short, love the unexpected detail but recommend ordering a size down. Mostly very happy with this, the only problems are that it is very loose-fitting and SUPER long, both of which were very unexpected for an undergarment - if anything I would be worried that it would be too tight. I measured myself and should be a 2, but there is so much room in this thing, I think I'll re-order size 0's. I'll also need to re-hem it myself. I'm 5'6" so I thought it shouldn't drag on the ground (again, especially as a basic, untrimmed undergarment), but without shoes it's all around me on the ground with inches of length to spare, fully covering my feet and everything. The good news for immediate use is that I was able to remove one of the sleeve lace ties (but only one as the other's loop was too tight to get the knots through) and use it as a makeshift belt to bring some of the fabric up, but then that is bulky under the dress (really bulkier since it is already very loose fitting). Pros - the fabric is nice, almost opaque enough to wear as a dress by itself, but not quite (even with the natural linen option). I was surprised by the nice pleating details at the neckline(where it ties) and at the top of the sleeves (where the top lacing loophole is). From the distanced pictures provided, I was expecting it to be more plain, but that detail is very lovely for when it shows peeking out from a dress. The adjustable neckline also works very well. I cinched it enough that the resulting neckline is quite high, and it does not look taxed or overly-gathered (and still leaves enough room in the shoulders that I feel that downsizing is the right move).

If only I had found this earlier in life...I would have found my clothing dream come true!! I am overtaken by the beauty and quality presented here...and can only hope your company will never stop to provide "real" clothing for the human body . Battle-worthy coupled with divine aesthetics...braced in bold-beauty and quality!! Thanks...and please stay in business.

This was the first item I bought from armstreet and it's not quite what I expected. The fabric is a bit heavier than I would have thought "lightweight softened linen" would be (I have several other pieces of 100% linen clothing that are softer and lighter) and out of the package it was VERY stiff and crunchy. One wash in cold water and extra-low-heat dryer for a few minutes made it a little softer, so I am hoping more washes will help. ALSO the sizing is larger than most US store sizes, so make sure to check the size chart for your actual measurements!! I bought about 3-4 sizes below what I would look for in a store and it still feels slightly large for a base layer. The quality of the product does seem good overall, but I may end up using it as a top-layer dress, not a chemise.

This is my absolute favorite chemise! It is incredibly comfortable. It's basic and goes with anything but the subtle details add a depth and texture that adds "realness" to it. The arm lacing are a little finicky to get just right but it's definitely worth it, or sometimes I just leave them off if I don't have time. I work at a medieval bed and breakfast and wear this chemise a LOT. It's the perfect base. I've also slept in it and even worn it with just a belt as a dress by itself! There was a spot in the skirt where a seam came loose, it looked like the stitching just went off the fabric a bit as it's not a place that takes tension at all, but a few minutes on the sewing machine and it was as good as new. That's the only flaw I've ever seen in all the Armstreet product we own and it was pretty minor and easy to fix. Overall I think this might be my favorite Armstreet item I've purchased to date!

So comfortable! The adjustable neckline and ties on the sleeves make it possible to wear this with multiple different styles of overdress. Versatile and washable. I like it!

Rachel

I use this as my basic chemise under a range of 14-15th century outfits. The shape is nice and slim to fit under different styles, and I like the adjustable neckline. However, I find when I tighten the neck it restricts movement through the arms/shoulders, and the sleeves become a little short. It still serves its purpose, however I just have to be careful depending on what I will be doing.

A gorgeous dress! The weight of the linen is beautiful, and after its been washed a few times, it softens up considerably. The arm strings are a bit of a hassle to tie when putting it on yourself, but I guess that's what handmaidens were for!

Much nicer in person than pictured. The tiny pleats in the front and on the sleeves are exquisite. The little eyelets to adjust the sleeves are pure genius. The small but beautiful details give this chemise great character. I feel transported to simpler era when I have this on.

Just received this chemise in the mail to wear under my 'forest princess' dress. It's fantastic! Perfect fit, and that was ordering the fixed size! I love all the little gathering details on the neck and sleeve. Can't wait to wear it to the faire this weekend!

ArmStreet team

Amazing, thank you so much for taking the time to share your experiences! It would be great Always welcome back to ArmStreet!

I have this one since 2014 (sadly just worn out after many years), I love it BUT it's rather long in the sleeves, and to the floor (it was made to my measurements). If I order another one, I'll ask them to make it slightly shorter.

Kristina
15 of December 2021

I am 5'6" (the height that the size guide says these dresses are made for) but the size 2 of this that I ordered is dragging on the ground with lots of length to spare. Which height should I say I am in the custom ordering in order to get a proper height for an undergarment that hits just at the bottom of the ankle / top of feet?

ArmStreet Team

Dear Kristina, the chemise should be long like on the pictues of the listing. If you order custom size, please siply leave a comment to your order that the chemise should be ankle length. 

Kristina
15 of December 2021

When I purchased using my measurements and the size chart, I'm swimming in the dress. How do I need to alter the measurements in the custom option in order for the dress to fit snugly?

ArmStreet Team

There is a chance that you have purchased wrong size. Please send us your measurements so we could advise on the size. Anyway, this chemise it not supposed to fit snug, it should be loose like on the pictures of th listing.

I just bought the chess queen gown and it is amazing, but realize that having a chemise under it may also be ideal. Would this one work? I also have the autumn princess gown and the lady tunic dress. Would it be fine ordering it in the natural fine flax linen? Appreciate it.

ArmStreet Team

Dear Elizabeth, we would like to offer you this Linen Chemise instead. It does not have any lacing and will be more comfortable to wear under the dresses. 

Stephanie Yarton

Is the chemise in the model photos in the Natural color?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Stephanie! Yes, it is natural color linen. 

Sharyn

Hi, I just wanted to know what colour linen the model was wearing in the picture? It looks white but it could be natural? thanks

ArmStreet Team

Hi Sharyn, it is natural color linen.

Looking at your chemises size chart it seems that size 0 and 2 is the same size chemise -is this true?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Agata, they are different sizes. You may check our size chart here

Hello! I have ordered two dresses, two chemises, and a shawl from you and you guys are my new favorite! I live on Kodiak Island in Alaska, so I end up wearing your clothes in "real life", since they are comfortable and functional. I am interested in purchasing the "Ingrid" and the "Eydis" dresses from you and am wondering if this chemise would work under those dresses. I don't mind if it's not "authentic", since I won't be wearing them to a faire...I'll be wearing them to work. Thanks again for your beautiful work. I was a costumer for a long time and I know good workmanship when I see it. :)

ArmStreet Team

Hi Erika, thank you for your feedback. Yes, this chemise will work. We can also offer you Eydis undertunic which has more suitable neckline for the Ingrid tunic. 

Lotte Knops

If I order this dress in custom size, could you make this dress a little more formfitting like the "archeress" chemise? Thanks!

ArmStreet team

We can offer you the Archeress chemise made with the sleeves from the Medieval Exclusive
XIV Century Style Chemise. This custom modification will cost $15.00.

I want to buy the chemise, but from my computer it is not showing me which of the "color/material choices" are which? What is the color on the left of the screen verses the one on the right? I would like to order this today.

ArmStreet team

The color on the left sample is White, on the right one is Natural. To make sure there will be no mistake, you can also mention the preferred color in the comments to your order and we`ll check it once we receive the order.

Could this be worn as part of a viking outfit? I'm very fond of those sleeves but I don't know if is authentic for a viking outfit. Thanks!

ArmStreet team

The sleeves of this chemise are actually not authentic as for the Viking outfit, they have more of the Fantasy spirit. If you need a chemise for your viking costume, here is the one we can recommend, it will fit perfectly.

Najah Lightfoot Bagley

I need to order this chemise in a custom size, w/o any sleeves. I need it to wear under the Witches' Halloween chemise I previously ordered. Everything I've ordered from you has fit me perfectly!

ArmStreet team

This chemise cannot be made without the sleeves at all. We can make it with short sleeves which will end at the biceps level approximately. If it works for you, please place an order via our website and mention that you would like to have short sleeves.

Caralee
16 of April 2016

Hello, I have ordered the Lady Hunter dress. Could this chemise go under that dress? I am worried about how tight the arms are on the one that goes with the dress and I like the idea of the adjustable neck line on this one.

ArmStreet Team

Hi Caralee, yes it will work with Lady Hunter dress. You may also check all our chemises here.

Michelle

What is the bicep measurement for sizes 2 and 4? I have a 28" waist, but am fuller in the arms, so often long sleeves are too tight.

ArmStreet team

Here is the chart - circumference of the sleeve at the upper arm in different sizes:
size 0 - 31.5 cm (12.4")
size 2 - 32.5 cm (12.8")
size 4 - 34.5 cm (13.6")
size 6 - 36.5 cm (14.4")
size 8 - 39 cm (15.4")
size 10 - 41.5cm (16.3")
size 12 - 44.5 cm (17.5")

Please note, these are real dimensions of the sleeves, so your biceps circumference should be at least 1.5 cm smaller. Hope this helps!

Heidi Ramsby
23 of July 2015

Hello, I would like to know how long the arms are and the length of the dress? I have 28" long arms, and I am 5'10" tall. Will you need to make special adjustments? Thank you, Heidi 641-469-6511 CST

ArmStreet team

We reccommend ordering custom size chemise. The length of the sleeves will be adjusted to your measurements.

To place your order, switch to the Custom size tab in the description of the item, click Add to cart, then Go to cart. Please tick the preferred color, then fill in your measurements in the order form and click Checkout.

Rachel

Are the laces around the sleeves attached? I would like to have the option of removing them if possible. Thank you.

ArmStreet team

The laces are removable, they're threaded into small woven loops, which are sewn into the shoulder joint.

What does it mean when you ask for a measurement with a floating point?

ArmStreet team

The essence of that pop-up warning is: non-integral numbers should be written as a decimal, rather than a fraction.
For example, your wrist circumference is seven inches and a half. Then write it as 7.5, not 7 1/2.

Tracy Conover
27 of September 2014

Hello, I love this chemise and would like to know if it is possible to have it made in one of the different linen/ flax colours, specifically the bright "cornflower" blue colour. Also, is it ever going to be available in "Fixed" sizes? Thank you, Sincerely, Tracy

ArmStreet team

This chemise can be made in white, natural or black color only.
To date it's available in fixed sizes, you're welcome!
