Snowcapped mountains, lush pasture, turquoise lakes, oh my! I have just got to share some more photos of Barbie in her couture dirndl. Look at this perfect location: Neuschwanstein Castle in the heart of Bavaria.
It was such a beautiful day and the castle looked so magnificent in the sunshine. The interior is very ornate, and finished with exquisite detailing but surprisingly also quite small and compact. Although the exterior was used in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang they used another castle for the interior shots.
The Dirndl is made from vintage silk, a fitted bodice with pewter buttons on the front, and a white cotton frilled undershirt, topped with tiny bows. The skirt is a full gathered skirt with a pink silk apron and the bow tied to the right, apparently this signifies she is single!
Phew. What a view. Time for some apple strudel I think.
Till next time,
