Birka Sundress


So useful!! 

This is one of the most versatile and comfortable garments we’ve ever made! This historically based Viking garment can be worn with a kirtle or pants, and a long sleeve tunic for a period look. For modern daywear, it can be worn with a turtleneck to work, or casually as a comfy sundress. It features Celtic knotwork on the front. This garment is hand-screened with a permanent fabric ink dye to produce the knotwork. The dress has matching fabric ties at the waist, which can be tied to the front or the back depending on your preference. The Rope Belt shown here is no longer available.  This dress has a short side split for ease of movement.  Perfect for SCA events, Medieval festivals, and summer Highland games. 


  • Made of 100% cotton fabric and is machine washable. The Linen Cotton blend fabric lends a more Historical look and is also machine washable. See our Color Chart page for Linen Cotton Blend colors. Would you like free color samples of the fabrics? We’d be happy to send you some, just email us your address. 
  • A historically accurate style for Medieval times. Some color options may not be historically accurate.
  • Looks great with our basic Kirtle.
  • Need Custom Sizing? Just let us know. Most times there is no extra charge for minor adjustments.
  • Our garments are not massed produced. Each one is handmade to your specifications here in the USA and our quality takes time. This means it will take 4 to 6 weeks to get your order to you. July through November orders may run over 8 weeks due to our show schedule. Occasionally we can manage rush orders or MAY have items in stock, please contact us before ordering. Thank you for taking this into consideration when placing your order.
***Color Disclaimer: Please note that due to screen variations, the color you see may not match the garment exactly. We strive to make our website colors as accurate as possible. However, website colors are approximations of the actual colors and dye lots may vary slightly.
