Pattern Magazine Galleries

Enjoy revisiting past fashion eras within the magazines from our collection.

Designs from these editions are available on request; if you see a design you would like to have traced for you, as PDF-pattern or as a paper pattern, here is what you need to do. Please note the design's number (usually underneath or close by the picture of the design) and the magazine's number (shown in RED in the top left corner of each title page) and send me a message via our 'In Search Of' contact form. If the number is unclear, you are welcome to send a screenshot via email to [email protected] or message us on Instagram @slowmadeingermany_patterns.

How will I know if the design I like is my size or not?

Often you will notice the small underlined numbers near the model, they usually represent the design's bust size in centimetres (2.54 cm = 1").

In Vobachs magazines the original bust sizes are coded from Gr 0 to Gr VI, which represents a range of bust sizes from 88cm (34.6") to 120cm (47.2"). The size table for each magazine is on the last page of the gallery's album for that edition; this will help you familiarise yourself with the different size charts used in these editions.
