Vintage sewing and plus size reproduction patterns for the stout woman.
Lovely, so elegant. It's such a distinctive silhouette. I wonder how real people managed to pull it off though.
love all those cloche hats! the blouses in the second to last picture are really cute too!
These are so lovely - thank you for sharing.I wish that more of these 20's clothes were still around, though I think that my ample hips would change the silhouette from elegant and sleek to frumpy. :-)I just recently started collecting vintage catalogs, and am a bit obsessed. So I'm intrigued to see that you have dedicated Sundays for sharing your catalog finds. I'll be back!Susan (sip-of-sarsaparilla.blogspot.com)
Ever since my (slow) journey into the vintage sewing world, I've been learning many different things about fashion from earlier times. I've read about the low dropped waist from this time and wow, is it ever distinct in these beautiful pictures! Thank you, over and over again, for sharing. Your blog is so educational.. haha! :)
Hi! I'm using some of your pattern catalog postings for inspiration in my patternmaking class (I'm not really into what's current in fashion). Anyway, I thought you should know that it looks like this catalog is in Hungarian, not German. At least the two pictures that have writing in them (plus the front cover) are in Hungarian.Thank you so much for doing these postings! I adore them.
Thanks, Palo-Verde! :)
