Today, the mailman made me very happy, because he had something for me:
Last week, I bought an original Lutterloh pattern book from 1941. Althought, this is not my first Lutterloh book, I still haven't worked with the Lutterloh system yet. So it might take some time to finish drawing the first pattern.
The patterns in the book are very small. With a special ruler, it's possible to convert the patterns to your own size.
Here are some of my favourite patterns from the Lutterloh book:
I really adore these two dresses. I like the sleeves of the left dress. The dress has so many beautiful details, like the sleeves, and the center part of the bodice.
I love the neckline and the double rows of buttons of the other dress.
I definitely want to make these dresses.
Don't you just love the drawings! The women back those days looked so stylish and elegant.
I think I will start with pattern 54, the skirt, before starting with dresses. Just to get to know the system.
Because I don't like to work on too many projects at the same time, i have to be a little patient. I really need to finish, at least some, of my other projects.
I'll keep you updated!
