The January 1956 issue of ladies' Rundschau is a classic issue. On the cover is a skiing outfit. You might wonder why but in those days bespoke skiing outfits were common and patterns can be found in Rundschau/Mueller & Sons publications. It is really something that ought to be revived. Most skiing outfits are often only roughly sized and often look like potato sacks. The trouble would be sourcing the right waterproof cloths for the purpose.





In this issue they report on the reopening of the Vienna State Opera House, after it was destroyed during the war. I've been there, and you won't see anyone dresses a stunningly as this. In fact, you are more likely to see jeans being worn there, if anything:





They follow up with a report on evening wear:





As an aside, here is something they describe as a clear "draping effect":



There are plenty of elegant tailored styles too. Here are a few to whet your appetite (lots more to come, so watch this space):

I love how they have technical illustrators adding an overlay on the seams to make them more distinct, almost has the effect of the older fashion plates drawn right on the body smile.gif

That is a nice coat. I wonder if they used lots of hook and eye and only made a few button holes?

Brother they are nice, this remindes me growing up and looking at my mothers books great to see them again.
I loke your style , and another article I read of yours regarding fittings made in front of a mirror , yes I recal re-cutting the front pannel to give the extra length , which once away from the mirror was no longer needed.
Good to see that I was not the only one to do this kind of thing !

Great to be here and meet all of you
Cheers

Welcome. I actually have a whole pile of these I haven't got around to scanning. I am a bit overwhelmed when trying to decide where to start. However, they are gorgeous to look at.

Amazing garment, what German engineering cutting has produced at that time.
Women tailoring is much harder than men tailoring, harder in cutting and making.

I imagine there could be some kind of train going on in the back extending from the collar-thing. That would be lovely. Are pics from the back or of the pattern avalible?
