A new dress inspired by the Matterhorn at Disneyland is now available at The Disney Dress Shop in Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort.
Matterhorn Dress – $148.00
This Matterhorn dress is a contemporary twist on the traditional dirndl worn by women and girls in the German-speaking Alps. The dress pays tribute to the Matterhorn Bobsleds attraction located at Fantasyland at Disneyland Park.
The dirndl features a full, gathered skirt paired with a snug bodice. Typically, the bodice and skirt are often contrasting colors, however, this version is all done in a soft Alpine green. Instead of a separate white blouse, this dress has the blouse sewn into the garment. The Matterhorn dress features a red ribbon around the waist, traditionally found on a dirndl, which can be tied into a bow for a touch of extra decoration.
The green bodice of this dress is adorned with colorful Alpine flowers in shades of red, white, and periwinkle, with contrasting green foliage. The flowers are placed on either side of the bodice, adding a decorative touch to the garment. The dress is adorned with seven decorative gold-toned buttons, each featuring a flower design.
The skirt of the Matterhorn dress is adorned with a variety of flowers in shades of white, blue, orange, and red, including forget-me-nots, lilies, and astor-like flowers. The display is completed with variegated green foliage. The floral design adds a pop of color and a touch of nature to the garment.
The Matterhorn attraction is depicted among the flowers on the skirt of the dress. This version of the mountain has a brown base with white snow accents, rather than being entirely snow-covered like the actual attraction. The signature waterfall of the attraction can also be seen on one side. This design adds a playful nod to the famous attraction.
The top of the back of the yoke has delicate embroidery of red and silver flowers, as well as white diamonds. The dress is finished with a hidden zipper closure. The embroidery adds a touch of elegance to the garment.
The white blouse portion of the dress can be seen in the three-quarters length sleeves and at the top around the neckline of the dress. Both the sleeves and neckline are made from dotted swiss. The neckline also includes a bit of lace at the top.
