Gotz Dirndl Dress (Gotz Vroni Doll), XL
This Dirndl dress is the dress that Gotz's new Classic Kidz Vroni doll wears, but here you can purchase it separately. A Dirndl dress is historically the dress worn by Alpine peasant women or house maids. Today it is still worn in Austria and parts of Germany, such as the Bavarian homeland of the Gotz family, often by older women or as special occasion wear. More recently it has taken on fashion status with a younger women who like to wear Dirndls at music festivals.
This Gotz Dirndl dress is in fact 5 pieces consisting of:
- white cotton bloomers
- white cotton petticoat
- white cotton peasant blouse
- striped pink satin dress
- striped green satin apron embroided with flowers
The fabrics used feel silky and luxurious and overall there is a good weight to this set of clothing. The crisp white cotton bloomers, petticoat and peasant blouse are all edged in broderie anglaise. The peasant blouse has elasticated sleeves, waistband and neckline to gently gather the fabric into the peasant blouse style. The blouse has additional decoration of two tiny white buttons on the front and a white bow at the neckline. The pink dress is made of a circle skirt in a striped pink satin-feel fabric, gathered into the waistband and sewn together with a mock boned pink satin bodice. The look of boning is created through stitching around fine cord. The dress opens at the back with velcro. Over the top of the pink dress is an eye-catching striped green apron embroidered with flowers in pink and plum. The apron ties wrap right around the waist and then tie at the front into a lovely big bow.
In the same way that traditional Dirndls can appear to be simple but are often expensively tailored and cut from luxurious fabrics, this Dirndl dress set for dolls is detailed, the fabric is weighty and there's more to it than first meets the eye.
