Dirndls_large

You could pay $60 (or more, depending on where you shop) for a cute cotton dress which resembles a German Wiesn Dirndl— or you could make your own, like Grosgrain did. Can you guess which dress was made by Kathleen from Grosgrain and which one was made for ready-to-wear? Want to make your own modern Wiesn Dirndl? Check out this tutorial.

      And I love the idea of being inspired by a ready-to-wear garment and creating it for yourself the way you’d like to wear it. The one you sew for yourself will be more rewarding to wear, and you can brag about how you made it!
