Nice!!!

I like the dress, too. :Big Grin:
Sure, I believe your work rocks, but... have you considered, how are you going to sell that stuff?

You do fine work.

Perhaps a good lining for the collar and other accessories is a cloth that is a little lighter in weight. That is for dresses, blouses and mens lighter shirts. For heavier outdoor shirts you could even have canvas. If you use canvas, this you would cut to shape and add strips of thin cloth along the edges sewn to the canvas, except corners, for sewing the seam just beyond the canvas edge.

Very nice, very classic! I wish women still wore the classy garments of the 50's/60's.

Yes I love this sort of stuff. In fact, I own a lot of dress patterns from this era, mostly Rundschau but also a lot of DSHW, including some from the likes of Czujewicz. I would infinitely prefer that this forum talked about dressmaking than about Goth and Vampire costume tailoring.

Czujewicz has used old chest proportions with construction summands which are sometimes mixed with seams and without. There is no way for a not very advanced tailor to be successful with this mess. Nobody knows exactly what the ease is there. Sometimes he also included 0.5cm seams in the dresses. The back depth is with seams in the armhole but hanging somewhere with whatever ease... If you are not absolutely sure what you are doing the system becomes a mess. The same is with the lounge coats with the Aufstockung and seams everywhere included in inconsist summands which hardly meet the control measurement. He was hiding the in-depth of his system. You can only use it as it is and wonder. Even in the draftings there are sometimes mixed numbers and wrong marked lines, cause someone else made the draftings for the magazines. Czujewizc also progressed in every new calculation, so you need to understand his latest drafts to adapt the older ones. He was very complex throughout the years jumping forwards without revising. You need to own all of his work and keep it in sequence to follow his travel throughout the decades.

I have finished today a - crisp clear, complete, brand new - like produced yesterday 200 pages book of his work, which only I own worldwide and cannot be published cause of competition and copyrights of the family.
A book binder then will bind it for me in blue linen covers and silver imprints like the Muellerbooks. And you know alone the binding in Houston cost alone 250$... but the same in Germany is 44Euro!

But if you are an expert in Mueller&Sohn, and I mean expert also of some other systems like Hans Mayer, then you can top up Mueller&Sohn and unlock a perfection of cutting nobody can even imagine plus you can take out also the mistakes of the Muellerbooks which are there as well in mass. Until now there is nobody which I know who has reached that level (probably tailors who are not members of the forum and reading the forum silently). For historian garment with ancient systems like Devere this doesn't play any violin, this is another story.

Therefore the Mueller&Sohn Blusen und Kleider would be a perfect material to publish cause it is didactically much better worked up then the Czujewizc mess.

Amen! Can we, at the same time, resurrect the concept of being "nicely turned out" and convince the public at large that this is a desirable thing to be achieved by people of any body shape and age? </rant>
