Welcome back for my second installment of the German Pattern Experiment. It was really exciting to see all of the positive responses on my first post! Today I have for you a few scans of the images from the December issue - to give you a little idea of what is in store with my German Pattern Experiment.
The funny thing about this issue is that it is all sleep wear, lingerie and children's clothing. I suppose the best way to face a cold winter is to lounge around all day in our sleep wear, or perhaps a silky teddy. This is sure to catch hubby's attention, resulting in the need to sew up children's clothing . . .
Knickers, a bra and two nighties. I like the attention to detail with the lace.
Night gowns, teddys and a pair of underwear that looks like bloomers.
I actually really like the pajama set with the pants and short sleeve shirt.
I'm not quite sure what these patterns are all about. The pants and vest look like a day outfit, but the one on the left with the black fabric and white polka-dots looks like pajamas gone wrong rather than something I would wear in public.
And here we have a house coat and robe. I think the robe would be every elegant if made from a lovely silk. The house coat however, screams mu-mu.
Don't forget about hubby, he needs sleep wear too! Can you believe that men wore body suits back in the 30's? I almost want to make it just to see if I can find someone who will wear it. On second thought, that's a lot of work, with the possibility of no reward.
Ah yes, the children's clothing. Save for the coat, these look more like spring time outfits rather than winter.
More stuff for the little ones. I personally love the little sailor outfit - when I someday have children, I will subject them to cute little outfits like this.
That's all for the patterns in my December 1936 issue of the German pattern magazine. What do you think - anything here that you would love to make up? How about those men's patterns? Is there a pattern here that you would like to see me made? I'm feeling a little partial to the robe in the fourth scan. But, I also like the idea of starting with something that uses a little less fabric.
Live in this moment and love life!
