The talented sewing enthusiast, Gertie of Gretie’s New Blog for Better Sewing, created an easy two-part tutorial for sewing a swirly, gathered dirndl skirt! We like how she incorporated the zipper into the waistband. Make an elegant ankle-length skirt with glamorous iridescent chocolate brown taffeta to go see Rigoletto, or a frolicsome knee-length version in a delightful airy Rose of Sharon cotton for picnicking on Stow Lake!
