I still have my German dirndl from the time I lived there as a little girl. The apron-over-skirt is such a timeless look--fanciful and practical at once. I wanted to make my little girls full, dirndl skirts complete with aprons and ties, but I didn't want the trouble of continually having to pick up the apron and tie it on again. It's difficult enough to maintain a bow!

So this skirt has the apron integrated, so it can't fall off. My Dirndl Skirt has a flat waist in front and a ruffled gathered waist in back with apron ties. It's full for twirling and running, and, if you'd like, has patch pockets on the apron for carrying along “friends” or collecting treasures.

I have created the Dirndl Skirt in multiple versions—with a rounded apron and pockets and rickrack trim, with a square apron and pockets (please see my other listsings for photos), and a flat apron version (no gathers) with piping and a stitched polka dot embellishment. I love them all! You can also leave off the ties if you prefer as the elastic waist in back has a cute ruffled casing.

The Dirndl Skirt will fit any size girl as it is a custom-fitted skirt. You will measure and cut your own pieces for the skirt, apron, pockets and waistband. If you are making the square apron there is nothing to print! If you are making the round apron, there is only one page to print: the templates for creating the curves on the pocket and apron. This pattern will walk you through taking the measurements to make a Dirndl Skirt to fit you’re little, or grown-up girl, perfectly. It is easier than it sounds—just rectangles! The most difficult part is deciding on your fabric combination. I love a printed skirt with plain apron or vice versa, but a combination of prints would be cute too.

I also include a tutorial for adding the stitched polka dot embellishment but please note there is no "pattern" per se, it is a how-to you can follow and adjust to suit the scale of your skirt.

This pattern is suitable for a beginner sewer. It just requires some basic hemming and gathering in addition to straight stitching.

This is a 23 page PDF file with detailed instructions and lots of photographs to make it easy to sew a Dirndl Skirt of your own. The skirt requires about a yard each of two different fabrics for the apron and skirt, some elastic interfacing and thread. That's it.
