I'd love to order this in the natural white, just to start with something simple to add to at each festival I attend, my worry is- with it being white- how transparent is it? Can you easily see thru it that I absolutely CANNOT wear it alone?

ArmStreet Team

Dear Lisa, white linen is transparent. We recommend to order natural linen chemise if you would like to wear it on its own.

Hi, I already have this chemise in natural fine flax linen (size 0), and thinking about ordering “The Alchemist's Daughter” dress in red burgundy flax linen, since it has detachable sleeves and offers more versatility for photo-shooting. Is it possible to wear the Archeress chemise under this dress?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Svetlana! Yes, this chemise can be worn with “The Alchemist's Daughter” dress.

Ginny

Hi, Just wondering if there's any way to have this chemise made shorter?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Ginny! Yes, it is possible to make the chemise a bit shorter. Please simply send us desired length measurement in the comment to your order. 

Kika

Is this see threw thin if worn alone?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Kika! Yes, this chemise is a bit transparent, especially in white color. 

Claire
16 of September 2018

Hello! :) This chemise is gorgeous! But I would like to know, is it possible to have it in...Green? Like the green of the dress called "Autumn Princess" for instance? AND with a trim on the collar?... Thank you by advance! :D

ArmStreet Team

Hi Claire! This particular chemise can be made in natural, while and black colors only, sorry. Colored linen is thicker and chemise looses its original look so we cannot guarantee you will like the outcome, unfortunately.

hello just wondering the pictures shown, is that the white or natural linen?

ArmStreet Team

Hi, it is natural color. 

Davina
29 of March 2018

Really like this dress, however the neckline is a little to low for me. Can this be altered to be higher to cover the collar bone?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Davina, we can make the neckline less revealing, but it won't be so narrow to cover the collar bone, sorry. 

Penny

Do you still provide made to measure?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Penny! Sure, please simply select custom size option for the chmise.

What is the sleeve biceps measurement in a size 6 of the Linen “Archeress” Chemise? Wondering if I can order an instock item or if I need to order with custom measurements.

ArmStreet Team

Hello, please check our size chart for the bicep measurement of each size. 

Sarah
09 of January 2018

The photos make the dress look like it is fitted at the waist, but it was very large on me and just hung off of my chest, making me look larger than I am. I am planning on purchasing a corset to wear over it that will hopefully make it more flattering. I ordered a size 6 and I have a large bust (41 inches) and small waist. The size 6 was too big on the bust as well as the waist and hips. I may also try pinning the back of the dress with safety pins.

ArmStreet Team

Dear Sarah, the dress is not fitted at the waist. It should fit loose like on the pictures. Our size 6 should fit 41"  bust and 36" waist. If the waist is smaller than indicated in our size chart, the dress will fit loose. In this case, we recommend to order custom size clothes. 

Stefanie
15 of December 2017

Hello! I am wondering, how transparent is the black linen used for this chemise? I have worn the natural colored version alone as a dress before, and am hoping I could do the same with a black colored one....Thank you!

ArmStreet Team

Hi Stefanie! The black color is not very transarent, it can be worn on its own.

Agata
03 of December 2017

What is the colour of chemise in the photos? Thank you

ArmStreet Team

Hi Agata! The chemise is shown in natural linen color. 

Jessie

Would you be able to fit bracers over the selves of this if you used the drawstring to shorten the selves about halfway?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Jessie, please check the pictures of the matching Archeress bracer to see how it can fit. 

Molly
09 of November 2017

I'm a small size 0, and would love to get the in-stock price. I notice the chemise size charts fit 0-2. I am BARELY big enough for the size 0. Is it going to be baggy?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Molly! In this case it is better to order custom size of the chemise. 

Mikaela
16 of October 2017

Will you be getting anymore of this chemise in size 6 or 8? While the sale is going on?

ArmStreet

Restocking frames may vary, but we can always make one or another size for you for the in-stock price. Just order any size available and mention the needed one in the comment to your order. :)

Amber Fauson
14 of October 2017

How long is this chemise in sizes 10 and 12. I'm 5' 10". Thanks

ArmStreet

The chemise in sizes 10 and 12 is 59 in (150cm) long.
For your height, I`d recommend ordering customized chemise.

JJ
23 of September 2017

When will you be restocking the white chemise in size 6?

ArmStreet Team

Hi, we often re-stock all the sizes and colors of this chemise. However, you may simply select pre-order for size 6 and it will be made for you personally.

Bec
17 of May 2017

Hello, is this only available in white or natural? I'd love to order in another colour

ArmStreet Team

Dear Bec, black color is also possible upon request. 

Anne Avian
15 of May 2017

Would armstreet sell me "archeress" as a 30 inch top instead of a full length dress with the sleeves stopping short of the fancy flare? I'm not finding other companies that make such tops. Also, how do you put it on if it's narrow at the waist? Thanks for your consideration.

ArmStreet Team

Dear Anne, unfortunately, it is not possible to make a top instead of the dress. 

Zari
04 of May 2017

Hello Armstreet! With the custom size chemise, is it possible to order it with what we refer to as a "LARP hem" (slightly shorter) so that it does not drag on the ground? With much love from a person looking to play a warrior priestess <3

ArmStreet Team

Hello Zari, yes of course, please simply leave this request in the comment to your order. 

Polina Kuptsova
18 of February 2017

Hi there Just wondering if this custom size chemise can be made with the trimming (Lady hunter or similar) for additional cost? Either on the bottom hem or sleeves, or both. Thank you

ArmStreet team

The chemise can be made with the narrow Lady Hunter trim on the bottom hem for $20.00 extra.
It can be also added on the sleeves, but the designer doesn`t recommend it since the trim will be too heavy for the sleeves like these.

Lady
03 of February 2017

Do you offer fabric sample? I can't decide if I want white or natural and I feel a swatch will help that decision.

ArmStreet team

Yes, we can send you up to 5 physical swatches for free, you`ll only need to pay $12.00 for shipping.

Sophia Maria
03 of October 2016

Hello, looking at your size chart I am wondering if size 0 is going to be too big in width and too small in length. Is it possible to customize the dress, and, if so, what would the costs be? Kind regards, Sophia Maria

ArmStreet team

Fixed size chemise cannot be adjusted, sorry.
You can order a custom chemise, which will be made according to your measurements, just switch to the "Custom size" tab, choose the colours and enter the needed measurement into the special fields.

Sarah A Pace

Hello, is the dress pictured the white or natural linen?

ArmStreet team

The model on the photos is wearing the dress in Natural linen.

Amy
29 of July 2016

Chemise just arrived yesterday and I love it as much as everything else I've ordered from you. Size 0 fits perfectly (I was a little worried as it's the first time I've ordered an in-stock item). Can't wait to acquire the rest of the Archeress outfit!

ArmStreet team

We are happy that you like the chemise and it fits! Thanks for your feedback! Always welcome back to ArmStreet!

ArmStreet team

Shannon Stevens
14 of July 2016

I was wondering if the black of this chemise is not shown as "in stock" would it have to special ordered and would that be an extra charge? Thanks

ArmStreet Team

Dear Shannon, black linen chemise can be made upon request. No extra charge.

Melissa J. Brown
12 of July 2016

Two questions: 1. When ordering size 12, since I'm 5'11", do I simply mention that to have it made longer? 2. I wear a size 11 shoe if fitting true to size, but my calves have always been large, so if I order a boot that has lacing in the back, I should measure the largest part of my leg below the knee and you can cut the leather large enough so that when I lace it up there will be no gap showing on the back of my leg?

ArmStreet team

1. If you order fixed size 12 from stock, it can not be changed. You can always order custom size and in that case the dress will be made specially for you according to your measurements.

2. Our boots are always custom made according to the measurements of the client, so there should be no problem with making boots fit you. While ordering you`ll be asked to enter the needed measurements. Please be attentive and careful providing them. Please check how to measure yourself in a proper way.

Irene
04 of June 2016

Hello, your items are truly beautiful! I would like to purchase this chemise with the surcoat “Sunshine Janet”. Is it possible to know shoulder and biceps measurements of 0 and 2 fixed sizes, just to be sure which one buy? Thank you in advance!

ArmStreet Team

Dear Irene, you are most welcome to check the bicep circumference for each size in our size chart. 

B Lee
10 of April 2016

Hello I was thinking of ordering this chemise now to wear alone (I understand it is thin, but if you wear undergarments that are skin tone it will be less see through) . A style question, if I order this now do you think it would look ok with on of the viking aprons , if I choose to order one of those late on.

ArmStreet Team

Hello, yes of course, it can be worn with viking apron.

Rita
10 of December 2015

Hi, I wonder if it is possible to order a dress in fixed size 4, but not as long as in the fixed size, or do I need to order a custom size made dress for that? Thank you in advance.

ArmStreet team

Yes, if you need shorter or longer dress, you should order it in custom size. In-stock items cannot be changed, sorry.

Dassah Clayton
11 of November 2015

Hi, is the natural color less transparent then white? I'm 5'9, so I have to costume order it. Does costume ordering take longer? I hoped to have it by new years.

ArmStreet team

Model from pictures wears Natural color chemise, it can be see-through when standing against the light. When worn as a main dress, should be complemented with matching colored seamless foundation garment/underwear.

We can make this chemise in custom size and deliver it by the New Year, please be sure to mention your deadline in a comment to your order.

Dassah Clayton
11 of November 2015

What size should I get? I'm 68.5 inches tall, 34.5 inches waist, 45 inches hips, and 41 inches chest, 14 inches biceps.

ArmStreet team

You need to get a custom size, since women's clothing of standard sizes is designed for full height 5' 6" (168 cm), should fit fine to the growth 5' 5" - 5' 7" (165-170 cm). Standard size items will be too short for you.

A. Orion
27 of October 2015

What size is the model in the picture wearing?

ArmStreet team

Model in the pictures wears the chemise of size 0. Welcome!

Sharyn Byer
28 of September 2015

I typically wear a size 8 in American clothes but according to your size chart measurements, I might be a size 6. Which should I order? I see that you currently offer a size 6 in the chemise but not in the archeress dress. When will you have those available?

ArmStreet team

Please specify your measurements (full height, chest, waist circumferences), and we'll help you to choose the right size.

To date the Archeress dress is available in stock in size 6 in midnight color only. While we cannot provide any accurate information about when the size 6 in burgundy color will be back in stock, sorry.

Casey Ambrosini

Who is this model if that is a reasonable question? Does she go through a certain agency or was this just a chance shoot she encountered?

ArmStreet team

She's our friend, not a professional model. We have no rights to share her name or contacts, as she is not engaged in modeling business. Thank you for your understanding!

Susan King

I would love to add this to my order in Size 6, if it hasn't shipped yet. Do you have it in stock?

ArmStreet team

Hello thought I like to Thank you if I haven't while ago for this lovely amazing chemise I absolutely love wearing it with also combined with the archeress dress and others. Thank you. Again amazing.

Rachel Grayson
23 of August 2015

Hi! I'm 5ft 10 and wondering if the standard size will be long enough, or would you recommend doing custom sizing? Thanks.

ArmStreet team

You need to get a custom size since women's fixed size items are made for full height 5' 6" (168 cm), should fit fine to the growth 5' 5" – 5' 7" (165–170 cm). Fixed size dresses will be too short for you.

Jessica Gilbert
17 of August 2015

I'm wondering if you have a set of just the archeress dress and chemise available?

ArmStreet team

There is no such set, you can buy them separately, or as part of the full set with the corset.

Nuria Pérez
29 of July 2015

Hola: Estoy interesada en este modelo, pero en la opción in stock no aparece ninguna talla disponible. Solamente es posible pedirlo en custom size? Gracias

Hi, Is it possible to make the bottom end of the sleeves shorter? Thanks! :)

ArmStreet team

Anna Smith

Hi There, can you please advise how long it would take to make size 0 and post to Australia postcode 4213. regards Anna

ArmStreet team

Size 0 (natural color) is out of stock at the moment, so manufacturing will take 25-29 days, the same as custom size. Plus shipping usually takes 16-21 days.

Hi. I was hoping you might have some information about for your mediaval flax linen chemise that goes with the archeress outfit. I've a cosplay in mind and I would need to dye it a deep or bright red. I'm wondering if the color would matter if I am going to dye it. Such as linen might be harder than white.

ArmStreet team

Basically dyeing is acceptable, but we can not provide any recommendations or guarantees, sorry. Please note that 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.

The size 8 you say is available, what are the msmts and color on it? And if its available would the shipping be quicker? Is there a 2-3 day possibility??

ArmStreet team

Diana

How does this go on? I don't see a zipper. Does it fit loose enough to just slip on over the head?

ArmStreet team

It is pullover style (no buttons, no zipper, just pull it on over the head). The chemise is semifitted.

Avalyen

Tara

How elastic is the neck line? could it possibly be worn off the shoulder?

ArmStreet team

Originally this chemise is not intended to be worn off the shoulders, the neckline is not elastic

Irina R
16 of November 2014

Hi there, I just received my linen tunic and it is lovely! I would like to soften the fabric but don't want to shrink it or ruin the fabric - how can I make it a lot softer than it is now? Thank you! Irina

ArmStreet team

The more linen is washed, the softer it gets because the fibers are broken down during the washing and drying process. You may use a conditioner for natural fabrics for fabric softening. Rinse your linen dress thoroughly to avoid stiffening due to detergent residue.

Emily
15 of September 2014

Can this be made in other colors such as the wine red available in other linens?

ArmStreet team

Sorry, this chemise can be made in white, natural or black color only.

Courtney
31 of August 2014

The dress is beautiful and I really like it, but how would you wash/clean the material

ArmStreet team

It's machine washable, use 40°C (104°F) water for wash in gentle mode. To prevent tarnish an alkaline solution or color safe laundry detergent should be be used. Extraction (spinning) in delicate mode to simplify the ironing. Please don't use hot drying and do not pre-soak linen clothes.

Andrea Seiberl
29 of August 2014

Is it possible to get the Archeress chemise in brown? The color that is available for the Archeress dress? Thanks!

ArmStreet team

Nope, the chemise cannot be made in brown, sorry.

Giulia
28 of April 2014

I Love this one! But there's something I don't understand: it looks like the waist is quite nipped in, but I don't see any kind of closure on the chemise...How is it possible? is it just an effect of the photos? Is the fit loose enough too be put on without a closure?

ArmStreet team

The chemise has semilying silhouette, it's pullover style (no buttons, no zipper, just pull it on over the head). Fabric cut on the bias actually has more give/stretch to it.

Katie
18 of February 2014

What color chemise is the model wearing in these photos?

ArmStreet team

Model wears Natural color chemise.

marta
11 of September 2013

Could it be possible to have it in cotton, and how much would it be. Thanks

ArmStreet team

Cannot be made of cotton, sorry.

Amanda
03 of June 2013

This looks lovely! I do have a question, though: if I did wear this as a standalone gown as suggested, how see-through is the fabric? Would a slip be recommended?

ArmStreet team

White linen can be transparent (as it's quite thin) when you look at it in the light. But this is imperceptible if you wear a matching colored underwear.

Candice
01 of May 2013

can this be ordered in colors other than black, natural and white?

ArmStreet team

Nope, the only options are natural, white and black, sorry.

Khelsei

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous chemise!! I can't wait to purchase a dress to wear with it! My only question is how do you care for this piece? Is it washable or dry clean only? Care instructions would be a nice thing to include with your pieces! ~k~

ArmStreet team

It's machine washable, here is our clothing care guide.

Xatonia
28 of November 2012

I bought this chemise and it just arrived today. I'm completely in love with it. The fit is amazing and so flattering (I was a little worried as I'm not as petite as the model). The fabric is a little thinner then I expected but very 'real' looking and brilliantly made. The cut and length are just perfect. And the sleeves? Simply stunning. The drawstring effect means you can wear them in everything from a pretty princess style, to a more roguish bunched up look. Stunning. Buy it now. Thank you! Love this item!

ArmStreet team

Thank you for such a detailed review, Xatonia! And always welcome back to ArmStreet!
