A Dirndl is a traditional German dress. We have one in our family that my Mother wore when she immigrated to Canada from Germany as a child over 55 years ago. When I was a young girl, I wore this same Dirndl to German School and other cultural celebrations in my community. And this year, when Bridget was learning about family history at school, she wore the same dress. It is truly special to have this Dirndl to pass down through the generations; it is a treasured family heirloom, a link to our past, to the story of our family.
To celebrate Bridget wearing the Dirndl I created this layout:
Are you the same way? Do you have any sentimental clothing items hanging in your closet? Any garment links to your family's past? Please share, I would love to hear.
