Buy the 123 Austrian Dirndl sewing pattern from Folkwear. The Dirndl dates back to the Renaissance and is one of few regional costumes still worn extensively in Austria, southern Germany, and Switzerland. It is also a favourite at Renaissance Faires and Oktoberfests. The complete dirndl consists of a close fitting sleeveless bodice with attached full skirt, over an abbreviated blouse, finished with a contrasting apron.

The View A dress is cut just above the bustline and buttons in front to the waist. It’s blouse is lightly gathered into a jewel neckline with a self-tie.

View B’s bodice 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.

Variations include knee length or low-calf length, dirndl bodice with high or low-neck, high or low-neck blouse, and an apron. This pattern features many options for detailing, ruffling, ruching, and shaping. Information is also included about authentic detailing, custom fitting, and adapting the garment for Renaissance costumes.
