I wanted to make a dirndl for various events coming up, and after a bit of research made one from a Folkwear pattern using black, red & white. It looks like that is something used in the Black Forest region (could be mistaken.) Anyway, I think it looks cute and want to make another.
I ran out of trim and need to add more, and might take up the apron a bit with some pintucks- do you think that would look better?
See the missing trim?
Yes, the top button is not perfectly centered. May or may not fix that. Also, imagine the bows are tied neatly here. Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with it!
Have you ever made a dirndl or a costume representative of your heritage? and
I am thinking of making a modified, modernish version to wear for everyday- would that be crazy? I have seen similar drindl-style dresses in the window of Betsey Johnson. How would I do that, and what colors, styles, etc would you use?
So, dirndl for everyday- too crazy? Or cute?
