Now these are dirndls! ...in the true sense of the word
Apparently there exists in the early 21st century a corruption of the word in Germany, where anything that is bouffant or full is called a 'dirndl'. Marketing, we presume. Historically, they were a specific 'folk' costume,
most of which reflected the town from which they originated. This kind of hints at that.
A while back, we had a short discussion about dirndls, and how many modern 'dirndls' do not reflect the historic definition.
Here are some that qualify under the classic definition:
