Really, I'm perfectly content to make dirndl skirts all day, every day. I've made three in the past few (including this version) months, and I'm about to begin work on a fourth skirt for spring. I lined this version, as the fabric has a kind of waffle-y texture and lets a fair amount of light through, and I used 1.5" elastic in the waistband. I love that the fabric can pick up both brown and black tones, making this skirt extra versatile.
