In former times Dirndl was just a dress for servants. But since 1870/80 it becomes accepted in the upper class. Today it is a dress with a close, low-cut sewing head. From the beginning of the waist there is a skirt. The length depends on the current fashion style. You can wear it during bigger folk festivals or the Oktoberfest in Munich.

The bounded bow at the skirt symbolized traditional the matrimonial status: is the bow on the right site it means that the wearer is engaged or married. Is the bow on the right site it means the lady is single. In former times it was equitable with virginity. Widows worn it in the middle of the skirt.
