My newest acquisition...

A pretty blue Dirndl that I had been watching on Etsy for ages.
As luck would have it, I had a bit of extra play money and I snagged it just now. Couldn't pass up the great price either.
Looking at the measurements listed by the seller, it might be a little big for me in the waist, but shouldn't be hard to fix. Dirndls are easy to alter. While it doesn't have its original white blouse and apron, I have a blouse and can make an apron to go with it. Perhaps in a pink or lavender, depending on the shade of the tiny floral print.

Thinking about adding some trim at the neckline too.

:O It's so lovely! *is jealous* :D
Indeed! Once in a while, some nice ones pop up on Etsy. Ebay is also a good source for vintage and gently used Dirndls at times, but often it seems the sellers list dresses missing the blouse and apron at too high a price.
Sure I'd pay nearly $200 for a new dirndl, complete with the above, but not one that is used and missing the important bits.

All the more reason to start making my own!
