Bavarian costume

I' m, Rosmarie Henke, a tailor of traditional costumes from Aschau am Inn, Germany. I'm very well known to the traditional costumers in Bavaria, as a longtime traditional costume keeper in the Gauverband I. Since 25 years I also organize Dirndl-Dresses and traditional bodice sewing courses.

About Rosmarie Henke

My commitment to Bavarian traditional costume

Already in the Gauverband 1 I proved my heart blood for the Bavarian costume. I held innumerable seminars, trainings and events in hundreds of associations in my nearly twenty-year term of office in the Gauverband.

In the year 2005 I received the district medal of the district Upper Bavaria for my engagement for the Bavarian costume in the range culture and monument preservation.

Therefore, more than 25 years ago, I had the idea to teach my knowledge in making of Dirndl Dresses, Traditional Bodice and the Bavarian costume in general.

How to sew a traditional Dirndl

In this online sewing course I have brought in my experience from over 25 years of sewing courses for Dirndl dresses and traditional bodices.

I am looking forward to the fact that now even more interested people will have the opportunity to sew a traditional Dirndl by themselves.
