1940s Inspiration

Um....I failed dismally at Me-Made-June.  I found it hard restricting my wardrobe choices to such few options, as most of the options I had, I wasn't fussed on.  I did wear more than I managed to document on camera, but finding the time/a person to take a pic was also tricky.  I do plan on attempting the challenge again, but will need FAR more me-made items first!  I did so enjoy seeing everyone's outfits in the flickr group, though.

I have started 2 dresses recently, plus have been busy buying more fabric and patterns, more on those in my next post.

Until then, here are yet more German pattern magazine images, from Weiner Bunte Mode, 1940, enjoy!

I love the bow details on the bodice of 35250

The next image is dreamy, the colours, the styles, everything!

Wow, the beach wear pages are knockout, I adore them! 

I especially like the bodice of 35223

So elegant, the illlustrations are beautiful.

Another favourite page of mine, I love the colours.

As stunning as these styles are, there is quite a significant hurdle in any of them getting made, take a look at the pattern sheet:

1960s Burda pattern sheets are a dream in comparison!
