I self drafted this dirndl skirt, in this lovely tartan dupion. I’m new to sewing so wanted something easy to draft but that fitted me perfectly (and it does!). I also wanted the inside to be as pretty as the outside so I did hong kong seams, and finished the hem with seam binding in the same colour. I love how pretty it looks!
I have put full instructions for how I made it on by blog Sleek Silhouette
