The Dirndl dates back to the Renaissance and is one of the few regional costumes still worn extensively in Austria, southern Germany, and Switzerland.
The complete Dirndl consists of a close-fitting sleeveless bodice with attached full skirt, over an abbreviated white blouse, finished with a contrasting apron. Easy-to-make decorative runching may be used to enhance the lines of the bodice.
Folkwear offers two dirndls. In View A, the dress is cut just above the bustline and buttons in front to the waist. Its blouse is lightly gathered into a jewel neckline with a self-tie.
The bodice in View B is cut wider and deeper - below the fullest part of the bust - and fitted with bones and small gussets. The front opening fastens with hooks and eyes. Its blouse gathers in front into a square neckline. Both blouses have gathered sleeves with an encased elastic band forming a ruffle at the elbow.
Both views and the apron can be street length or low-calf length.
Package includes extensive notes on typical dirndl fabrics and trims. Instructions for optional ruching are included.
