I just had to share my recent ebay find – a pair of vintage pattern magazines, one German and one Austrian. My guess is these are probably the precursor to BWOF. Each has illustrations of the garments and all the patterns. After seeing these pattern sheets and the lack of sewing instructions, I will look at my BWOF patterns and instructions with new-found appreciation!!! I guess it won’t matter that I do not speak or read German! One of the mags is from 1951, the other from 1942 – great sources of wonderful vintage looks with a European flair. I may have to rearrange my project line-up and insert one of these.
