Scroll down to see how Nadja used the apron she wore at her secret elopement at her wedding.
Nadja asked her mum to sew her an apron with this traditional fabric that she bought in Julian's Mother's hometown. The "Dirndl" (dirndl dress, traditional dress/costume) and it's fabric looks different in different regions of Austria.
At the time Nadja's mum sewed the apron, she didn't know about the secret wedding, so it was a lovely surprise for her. Nadja used the fabric then as a decoration at the dinner table at her big church wedding day (Julian's and her chair were decorated with the fabric as well as Nadja's Mum's table set was decorated with it.
