Part 2 of the Burda fashion history series is now up in English. For some of us these will bring back memories!
Spring/summer 1966 Burda slideshow

Interesting -- this time not all the styles are actually from Burda ...a couple say "Vogue."
(P.S. I don't think anyone has already mentioned this slideshow in a post somewhere, but if they have, sorry for the duplication.)

Just noticed this one -- a gorgeous suit -- the dart lines on the jacket and skirt actually line up vertically... holy cow. But what the heck, it says this was for "women with plus sizes." (The model in the sketch is representative of this, I suppose? )

Way too funny. That is more like a "slim" sized pattern!!
I do love the lines on it though, and the pleats opening up at the bottom of the skirt are a wonderful touch.

Yes, I wish they'd start a vintage and retro pattern line. I'd definitely buy this, and quite a few of the others!

I would love it if they offered retro patterns too.

Oh, I would love alot of the reprints, if they'd do that! It is so hard to find a copy of a vintage pattern that is in my size - even though I know I could resize most things if I had the patience and TIME I would rather just have my size and go!

Hi, the clothes are so elegant.

I wrote to Burda once and ask them if they ever thought about producing a one off special pattern mag with retro clothes. They told me that it would be too expensive and there is no market for that kind of clothing.

If they ever change their mind and decide to do a mag with retro clothing, I'd be well and truly interested.

They've put some retro's in the BWOF magazine. Sometimes I want to stop my subscription, but it's hard to do in practice.

I think that the pattern companies would be smart to reprint their old patterns. I know that alot of the younger girls as well like the vintage style - my 2 dd at 18 (a fashion design student!) and 16 really like many of the vintage patterns. I have also struck up sonversations with girls in their teens and 20's several times while shopping or out somewhere and have been surprised how many like some type of "retro" look! ( I am getting tired of the current revisiting of the mummu look though, my taste is a bit farther back than the 70's right now!!!))

Well, I realize they can't reprint everything, but it would be nice if they did what Vogue, Butterick, and Simplicity do and reproduce a select few. Here are a few from that slideshow that I think might be good candidates -- also that so-called plus size suit. (What do you think of the slideshow, by the way?)
