My Dirndl ( Austrian / German Life style )

Definition of dirndl

1: A dress style with tight bodice, short sleeves, low neck, and gathered skirt
2: A full skirt with a tight waistband


IMG_6157The dirndl consists of a bodice, a low-cut blouse with short puff Sleeves, full Skirt and apron. While appearing to be simple and plain, a properly made modern dirndl may be quite expensive as it is tailored and sometimes cut from costly hand-printed or silk fabrics

The dirndl is mostly worn in Austria and Germany, It is hugely popular also among young women at the time of a Octoberfest  and and similar festivals.


Accessories may include a long apron tied round the waist, scarfs and silk aprons are worn. For colder weather there are heavy dirndl coats in the same cut as the dresses, with a high neck and front buttons, thick mittens and wool hats.

The Delicate Bow has a strong meaning

Front right : It means the Dirndl Carrier is already taken or Married

Front left : You still have chances with her

Front in the middle : then the woman is still a vergin

Back in the middle : indicates that she is a Widowed


Sorry !! My dirndl mesh/Bow is on my left hand side which means not taken and ready 🙈

Mine was supposed to be on the right hand side which means ” I`m married and taken ” 😀

Hope you love the Traditional wear of Austrians

Thanks for passing by and wish you all  a Wonderfull Week 🤗🤗
