I made this bstenhalter using a great German vintage pattern magazine from 1936. I had to do a lot of tracing, translating, and guess work but it was worth it!
I still couldn’t get past some of the special script used in older German texts. If anyone has any suggestions for translating tips, I’d be happy to hear them (I don’t speak any German yet!)

(thanks for the notes on corrections, they really helped!)
I used some lovely unidentified fabric that I snagged at a thrift shop in the states, some salvaged vintage lace, made my own bias tape, and lined this little baby with black satin.
