A dirndl is a great dress with lots of history in Austria and South Germany.
This is a pretty simple version, also known as “Waeschedirndl”, because in former times people used bedlinen fabrics for Leibl (bodice) and Kittel (skirt) to get an easy to clean work dress.
cotton fabrics with typical “Tracht” prints
