    And by pure coincidence... I just found this whilst going over some patterns that I recently bought... not only is it the magazine page to go with the pattern, but it says the dress in the photo is by Akris!
    Seems like they had a cooperation going... Meyers Modeblatt was a Swiss women's magazine that also offered sewing patterns - it went from being a sort of all-around magazine for housewives that was published weekly to being more focused on sewing/crafts and being published monthly.

    That was an excellent article, Karin -- I really enjoyed reading it and learning all about Alice Kriemier-Schoch, Akris, and her legacy.

    Love that coat pic too and the newer uniform designs. It's too bad that aprons have fallen out of use over the decades.

    Thank you, thank you, Karin! It's a wonderful story, and I now admire the woman, as well as her clothes (and aprons!).
