      thank you very much Mary! Just browsing the internet one day I came across Kostümkram and Dawanda and went mad. Ordered 4 magazines at once and was really amazed when they arrived. They were in very good condition and some of the clothes pictured are just sooo stylish that I wish I could make them all, despite all the headscratching. Don’t know about your polish ones, but the german mags aren’t very forthcoming with their explanations. I guess women then were more accomplished seamstresses then and knew what to do, unlike me :-(( Nethertheless, I love these old patterns, so expect to see more :-)) xx
