I always wanted to make my own bavarian dirndl for the Munich Oktoberfest, and now I just managed it. It was really fun to sew it, with masses of fabric for the ample skirt part. I modified a pattern of the Burda Special “Modische Trachten” from 1989 to have buttons in the front instead of a zipper in the back and added white cotton linen at the bodice.
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
