It looks great!. If you are worried about the top being to loose you could maybe do a little smocking to tighten it up at the centre or some shirring elastic.
I was thinking the same thing: you don't have to get a new shirt, just make adjustments to that one.
I was in Germany for like 20 minutes once: when I was born! My sisters have dirndls from when they were 6 and 8 and of course my Mom had some that I would wear to high school here in the US. I love dirndls. I should find a pattern. Thanks for this! I'ma wist it!

Guad gmacht, echt suppa, i bin total begeistert!
Awesome job! I love it! I loooooove the colour and the embroidered Strawberries, that makes it so very special und unique!
And I think you are so brave making a Dirndl, it needs to be fitted really well I think to make it look great (especially boobs and so) - but you did it! Very impressed!

And yes, Boo Octoberfest, haha!

Thank you! Smiley
Yes I think I'll try to smock the blouse. there is already an elastic band on the bottom. but it's just too big.

And: actually a lot of people were asking where I bought it (yeah, actually only the girls, the boys were staring at the bust...)
I promised my sister that the next dirndl I'm going to make will be on for her Smiley But give it a try, it wasn't as hard as I thought it might be. And I think I saw dirndl patterns on Burda (I also think some are for free, which are very similar to dirndls).

And how cool are strawberry tattoos Cheesy

This is really beautiful. I love the strawberries and that you made it. Fantastic job! I have relatives that have professionally made traditional dirndl and yours is so much better!
