I got my girls from our Stitch n Bitch group to all make our own dirndls for our friends Oktoberfest. It took us 4 Tuesday nights to complete it and it was alot of fun (with maybe a few tears!). Considering this was most of the girls first sewing project I think they did so great!. I had the fun job of deciphering the instructions and pattern but after one day of brain power I got there. For mine I used vintage fabric for the top and skirt and just a cheap cotton fabric for the apron.
And ofcourse I had to make my daughter one too. I just made it from a childs vest pattern and attached the skirt and made an apron. I misjudged her size though and had to use ribbon to lace up the front as it wouldn’t meet up for the buttons!
