Make Your Own Dirndl Apron

Design a custom made dirndl apron to add the perfect finishing touch to a traditional German dirndl, or a modern Landhausmode. Choose from stiff, medium weight Monroe Satin, with smooth and fluid draping or soft, lightweight Panama Flo for a springy fabric with a slight bounce to it. Both textiles are poly-blend materials, woven using spun yarns and opaque, however Monroe Satin has a shiny surface whereas Panama Flo is matte.

Monroe Satin

Stiff and shiny, Monroe Satin is a poly-blend material which uses spun yarns in the plain satin weave. A medium weight fabric with smooth and fluid draping, great for keeping in warmth.

Panama Flo

Soft and matte, Panama Flo is a poly-blend material woven from spun yarns. A half panama and durable weave, this lightweight fabric is very taut, and perfect for a summery impression.

Your label, your brand

Planning on selling your designs? Add your brand name and information to a fabric label for a truly professional, personal touch. Each label is as unique as the garment you design it for, so you can even customise it with your customer's name or a personal message. Custom fabric labels are perfect for ensuring care instructions are passed to your customers and for building your brand and becoming recognisable.

Your custom made dirndl apron will compliment your outfit wonderfully by itself, especially for a more summery feel using the Panama Flo fabric. If you are aiming for a more autumnal look, use the Monroe Satin fabric and pair with our headscarf - in silk - for traditional German "Seidentuch" headgear.

Frequently asked questions:

What parts of my custom made dirndl apron can I design?

You can not only choose the fabric that your custom made dirndl apron is made from, but the front of the apron is made from a single piece of fabric which is entirely your own design. The tie is made from a 1 metre white, satin ribbon, however the rest of the apron is customisable so you can truly make your own dirndl apron.

How is my design printed?

We use a process known as sublimation printing, which provides a wonderful finish. The inks penetrate deep into the fabric's fibres and are permanently fused with the fabric. This gives you vivid colours and amazing quality. We print your design directly onto the fabric of your choice, and then use that piece of fabric to create your apron rather than butting the fabric to shape and then printing. This provides a seamless result.

Will my apron crumple and crease?

It won't. Both the Monroe Satin and Panama Flo fabrics are fantastic for not creasing. The stiff feel to the Panama Flo makes the fabric easy to manipulate and holds its shape well, returning to its natural state with little to no creasing. Monroe Satin returns to its regular shape if you simply lay it flat. So you can enjoy your own custom design, on this beautiful dirndl apron crease-free.

Print Guideline

    • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

      What's the best resolution to print in?

      We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image. 

  • scaling-Print Guideline Icon

    How will my image scale?

    When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important choose RGB; this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.

  • Print-Roll Length Fabric Guide Icon

    Maximum dimensions

    For most of our fabrics, there is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 10m max to visualise the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, increase the quantity (x2 for 20m or x4 for 40m for example) and then you can order as much as you'd like, with a built-in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each fabric can be found on the individual fabric pages or in our design interface.

  • Borders-Print Guideline Icon

    Do I need to incorporate white space within my design if I want a border or some cutting space?

    Yes, that might help you! Always incorporate any extra space or borders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 5mm white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on fabric a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not; we like to test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail, jpeg is fine.

  • Barcode Icon

    Why is there a barcode inside my clothing?

    Due to our internal processes here at Contrado, there will be a barcode printed on your garment. This is inside the clothing and will not affect your design. It is usually found towards the bottom.

  • Shrinkage-Print Guideline Icon

    What is the situation with material shrinkage?

    Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions. This percentage can vary. As everything we produce is handmade to order, there may be a slight variance in the measurements.

  • Print-Both Sides Print Guideline Icon

    Can I print on both sides of the fabric?

    We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as many fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.

  • Labels-Print Guideline Icon

    Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them as you do with the normal fabric labels?

    At the moment our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now, this is the best choice. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into labels.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are printed using water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.
