...admittedly, it was a tad awkward with me being the only one in traditional German dress, but I think this year the other ladies (and maybe some of the men!) will be costumed as well! Perhaps my attire was a spur to prick the sides of their intent? Yes? No? Maybe?
Anyway, here is my Dirndl. I had a load of fun making it and it's quite possibly the most comfortable costume I've ever made! I hope to wear it for this year's 'fest and to the second Hobbit film... unless, of course, something happens and I decide to make another costume from Middle Earth.
Pfft. Like, that never happens.
You can see the detailing I put into the back- I have a book of Dirndl pictures from Germany, and some of them had GORGEOUS detailing along the seam lines in the back. This is my attempt at it!
There are three pieces- the half blouse (it's so awesome), the jumper, and the apron.
If you'd like your very own Dirndl, feel free to contact me! I'd love to make another one of these... not all Dirndls look alike, there are tons of variations, and we can explore one together!
