70s Floral Dirndl Skirt

Added Oct 12, 2012

Singapore, Singa...






This is another project that I completed many months ago. I think I finished this in autumn (around May) but never got around to wearing it, taking photos of it or blogging about it. But here it is!

Pattern: Butterick 5935, option B

Modification(s): I shortened the hem (as usual).

What I dislike about this pattern: I think a dirndl skirt is meant to be a full skirt. But for some reason, my dirndl skirt simply isn’t as full as the ones shown on the front of the sewing pattern. I am definitely unable to stretch my legs out and run quickly when wearing this skirt. But I guess it doesn’t really matter that much.

What I love about this pattern: The mere fact that the pattern is from the 70s makes my heart sing. Oh, also, THERE ARE POCKETS!

    Yes, a dirndl skirt should be fuller, but it’s a very lovely skirt nevertheless!
