A Navy Dirndl Skirt

By Cedar | November 2, 2012

I finished sewing this skirt earlier in the week. It is actually the second one I have made, and was such a snap to sew up. I think it is my absolute favorite style of skirt, it is pretty and so comfortable. This one was made of a lightweight cotton lawn in navy, which is perfect for our still incredibly warm weather here in southern California. The first one I made is a pretty vintage striped fabric, that is really more suited for Spring and Summer, but I may get a picture of it one of these days to share.

The pattern I drafted was from Gertie’s book, which I talked about a few days ago. After reading the pattern I remembered she had a similar tutorial for it on her blog, which you can see here and here.
