Schnittquelle has some new Fall patterns out, and the fifth one down, in blue, is a pretty side-wrapped shirt named 'Strübbel,' which has an unusual shaping detail. If you click on Schnittlagenplan (cutting layout), you can see that the waist is shaped by a pair of semi-horizontal darts.

Thanks for posting! Interesting details as so often, i.e. the shirt you mentioned.

BTW: with rare exceptions, all patterns of Schnittquelle are named after a city, village, island, country, region, or mountain. I needed to google Strübbel, had no idea what is is! (A community in the North of Germany.)

I love shirt Kerpen but would envision it as a dress (by adding some inches in length). (For formula one fans: Kerpen is a city where Michael Schumacher was born.)

Happy Sewing!

Nora, Schnittquelle instructions are comparable to burda magazine instructions = room for improvement ... So language would not necessarily be a barrier. In fact, while the instructions are really not their strongest suit, I loved all patterns from Schnittquelle I sewed up because they were well drafted, the pattern paper is very sturdy (similar to Jalie paper), and the owner is very friendly and approachable. She started posting tutorials for the more complex patterns on her blog and will answer any question (incl. assembly/construction) you may have by e-mail. NAYY!

I love their Jacken! (Jackets) Really cute designs in there. I guess you could use Google translator, or just pretend they are like Marfy with no instructions?

Elona, have you tried any of their patterns?

ETA: I just noticed their sleeve shapes! That's a nice change from the big 4!

I haven't made up 'real' garments yet, just muslins. They're pretty simple designs, and the instructions probably aren't necessary for those with a bit of sewing experience.

Schnittquelles are one-sized (there's a measurement chart on the site), and my Burda size 42 seems to be almost identical to a Schnittquelle 42, maybe just a tad larger in the shoulders than the Schnittquelle.

If you want to see what made-up Schnittquelles look like, here's a bunch of google images, a number of which are on real human bodies, most of them German.

Just used Google translate on the site--- which translates what I assume to be "fabric" or "yardage" as "FUEL"! Not Kidding.

OK, that's interesting. I know a bit of German, but I would never have guessed "Kraftstoff" meant fuel -- I'm guessing poor little Google Translate thinks "Stoffbreite" and "Kraftstoff" are the same word.

Not only that, but on mine it translated Stoffbreite as "fuel consumption" instead of fabric yardage.

Breite is 'width.' The English cognate is 'breadth.' (Since so many of our basic English words are Germanic in origin, we probably know a lot more German than we are consciously aware of, like Länge=length, Knie=knee, Schulter=shoulder, and about a metric ton more).

Anyhow, for how much fabric is needed, if you see this in the description:

Stoffverbrauch bei 140 cm Stoffbreite:

Gr. 42: 165 cm


what it means is "Amount of fabric needed for fabric 140 cm wide:

For size 42: 165 cm (in length, yardage)
