It has begun. Pattern and fabric has been purchased and I'm ready to begin. I even started prewashing the linen/ cotton for the blouse last night.
No, I'm not making it for Octoberfest. I'm German, but my family was from the North or the West bordering France. I don't have any relatives from Austria. I simply like dirndls. They are super cute, easy to wear and fun to say. Say it with me: dirndl, dirndl, dirndl! Fun!
My goal for completion is the end of April.
"Where will you wear this?" you ask. Everywhere! Grocery shopping? Yes! Work? Yes! Dinner? Yes! I figure there are people in Austria who wear this dress every single day so why not.
