Description

I made this dirndl for Oktoberfest but I didn’t finish it in time – I bought the fabric two days before I left for Munich… so I wore lederhosen to the festival instead. I got to wear this around the city though (and in my friend’s neighbour’s field). It has a buttoned bodice with attached pleated skirt, a short blouse for underneath, an apron and a petticoat. I had to completely handstitch the apron cos I didn’t have access to a sewing machine I could use. I made up my own pattern for the dirndl using my bodice sloper. For the blouse I modified Burda pattern 7831. I made it a little bigger so I wouldn’t have to use buttons, added elastic around the bottom of the back, made the neckline lower and got rid of the collar then added a ruffle.

    My wife wants one of these. She is a Julie Andrews fan and this is a reminder of “The Sound of Music.” Do you think that it would look okay in blue camoflage?

      Blue camo? Hmmm…. well I prefer florals and girly looking stuff for dirndls but if you are going for Maria’s curtain look then I guess it would be ok.
