Here is what a few of her custom clients had said about their Dirndls:
"I contacted Erika about a month prior to leaving for Oktoberfest and in that time she was able to create custom dirndls for myself and my sister. Within a few days, Erika had emailed me fabric ideas, layouts of embroidery work, and beautiful drawings of the dirndl design and a few weeks later I had the beautiful dirndls. The dirndls were a fantastic way to incorporate our new business venture, Mockery Brewery into our Oktoberfest adventures."
—Rachel Rabun Denver, CO
"It only seemed fit that I somehow incorporate my love of horses into my love of all things German. My equestrian-inspired dirndl has done just that. Its navy bodice with silver buttons emulates a show coat while the skirt’s color beautifully represents the breeches traditionally worn in the show ring. But my Rare dirndl is not just for show; it is fully functional. The unique aspect of my dirndl is its bell skirt, which is perfect for Schuhplattler dancing."
—Jenn Lineman Glenside, PA
"Before I met Erika, wearing a dirndls wasn't always the most exciting, but now I have two Rare dirndls and each is gorgeous and unique. I'm completely satisfied with all of my Rare Dirndl purchases. Whether you're looking for an elegant dirndl to wear to a wedding, or a cute and sporty dirndl, Erika can do it all. Her high quality, hand sewn, Made in America dirndls are the way to go!"
—Jamie Krispel Hermosa Beach, CA
"Finally having a dirndl to wear that I not only feel comfortable in, but that let's me reflect my own personality, is indescribable. When I tried my dirndl on, it was a perfect fit; I didn't want to take it off. It's like Erika stepped into my head, saw my dream dirndl, and then made it a thousand times better."
—Rachael Wermuth Cincinnati, OH
"I have been wearing dirndls my entire life including ones that I bought in Germany. None of them have ever made me feel as feminine, beautiful, and sexy as I do in my Rare Dirndln. I now have 4 Rare Dirndln and I love them all!"
—Karen Geist Sycamore, IL
"I absolutely love my new dirndl, I think I just might sleep in it and wear it to work tomorrow! I just tried it on and everything fits perfectly! I love everything about it!"
—Lauren Seiberling Clinton Twp, MI
"My dirndl is elegant, high quality and executed flawlessly. The end result was much more than I had hoped! I am so happy with how it turned out! When I wore my dirndl for the first time, I received many compliments asking where I bought my dirndl."
—Karin Schulz Huntington Beach, CA
"I can't believe how elegant and rich the dirndl looks, not to mention gorgeous! You did a terrific job matching the material and you read my mind. I think you knew better what I wanted then I did! You are truly an artiste!"
—Brigitte Khoury St. Paul, MN
"Ever since I was a kid I always had a soft spot for Disney. I talked to Erika and asked her about the possibility to create a Minnie Mouse Dirndl and she told me that she was up for the challenge. Ever since I received the Minnie Mouse Dirndl from Rare Dirndl, I have worn it out to many German events and festivals. Erika was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional and willing to think outside of the box. I love having a Dirndl that is fun and unique and fits my personality."
—Caroline Dektas Cincinnati, OH
"I wore my custom Dirndl last night and got lots of compliments. I love it! Thanks again!"
