Thank you for the lovely comments on our wedding photos! In the autumn after our wedding we celebrated Oktoberfest at Cannstatter Volksfest in Stuttgart, a wedding gift from a dear cousin and her husband.
I had plans to go the whole hog - sew a complete Dirndl with vest and blouse, but in my last-minute style I ended up whipping up this BurdaWiesn Dirndl pattern, the morning before our flight.
As you might imagine, we were a too busy singing, drinking and oom-pah-pahing to stop to take any very good photos...I shall leave you with these...
A super week-end. But, if I ever get a do-over, I'm going to make that vest. And the hubby is getting a pair of Lederhosen.
I think a wheat beer is calling my name...
oom-pah-pahing gives me flashbacks! Such a cute dirndl :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! Glad you had the experience too :)Delete
Hey - this is where I live! I was so excited for a moment because I thought you lived in Stuttgart and I'm always looking for a real life sewing buddy, but it looks like you're in London. Oh well, I'm glad you had fun - your outfit is really cute!ReplyDelete
How I WISH I lived in Stuttgart, you lucky girl! If you are ever in London and looking for a fabric shopping guide...!Delete
Seeing this makes me miss living in Stuttgart so much!! I enjoyed Wiesn so much.. many many drunken memories.ReplyDelete
Lovely job on the dirndl
Ahh you got to live in Stuttgart, too! How fun to have this on your doorstep! I am sure you have many lovely Dirndls!Delete
Great outfit for the Oktoberfest - I have never been, but my husband has (he likes beer MUCH more than I do!!), and did not dress up!ReplyDelete
How fun! I love your outfit -- and yes, next time it would be amazing to go whole hog with a vest and lederhosen for your husband! I loved seeing all of the dirndl styles in Munich when I was there a couple of weeks ago.ReplyDelete
