Here is yet another classical issue of Rundschau that focuses on stylish fashion plates and photos rather than patterns. This is only the first installment - there is more to come.

Sator, when you see a number in the pictures as in Empire Line D11 505, there was a pattern included as it is today in the Ladies journals. Today some of the pattern which are shown in the journal you can order too.

Thank you for that. However, I can definitely reassure you that in this issue there is not a single pattern printed anywhere.

Unlike in later years, when there was a separate Rundschau for women's tailoring, there were hardly any pattern sheets included. In some cases there would only be one pattern for a men's suit printed in them and nothing else. But in any case the reader was able to mail order the according patterns for any shown fashion plate.

"Only he is a master of his art who always seeks to improve the good and never believes to have the best already"

As you can see from the cover however, this issue is devoted to ladies' tailoring and dressmaking (both are called Damenschneiderei in German). I managed to acquire a few of these from the same source, each of them without a single pattern in them. The person who collected them was probably not a tailor but a fashion enthusiast who liked the pictures. I am certainly grateful to this person for keeping these safely for all of these decades.

Here is the next installment.

Now for the final installation from this issue. The final page is the back cover. It's amazing really to see of all these classic images from just one issue. I am temping to show a couple of the old sewing ads too.

I am pretty much sure the 50thies are back, those costumes we will see in the streets in not all to far future. Sharpen the scissors. I heard Pfaff is in good business.

There are some very inspiring images there. I really like the cut of some of the dresses, the use of seamlines to make a very fitted and well formed garment.

I am sure you've had a look at the other vintage ladies' Rundschau issues. They are amazing aren't they? The sheer range and depth of ideas. The tour de force of really gorgeous tailoring on display. It's just incredible.

Here, the blue one, D11471, is very nice. The only way I see to cut it, though, makes it a nightmare to make, if one wants to be true to the fashion drawing...

Well, it is easier than it looks. It has a pleat in the wing collar "Beleg" (interface?).
I would not like to do D 11472. Look how the darts are corresponding between jacket and skirt.

11471 is the dark blue one. Look at the pockets. To make this takes some skill... and a lot of thinking while patternmaking.

11472, I had'nt seen, I needed to scroll laterally. You're right, maching those darts is not easy at all...

11472 you could match them when fitting. Skirt would be made last.
