    I would love to hear about what magazines you have. I have about 50 or so German women's and fashion magazines. I had no idea people in the US would be interested in that. I could never figure out the monthly pattern they put in them. it is a million times worse than the CW Peterson's and Godey's. I have only started sewing CW dresses and making bonnets. I don't think I could ever do a real 30/40s style clothing. Is the 1940s Fashion book this Jonathan on here? I have a few 40s books or war time but they are either British and their fashion was so different or US. The German/Italian has been hard to find for me.

    me again what made the whole made by Aryan hands was that the cotton, sheep etc was grown or breed by Germans, harvested and even spun and weaved the fabric all by Aryan hands..,... How impossible could that be done now to any group?

    I'm actually in Switzerland :) - and got most of these mags through my friend in Austria. I have not yet attempted to make something from these patterns (I've got a few of Beyers Modeblatt für Handarbeit and several of Praktische Mode, one Record and a few issues of Elegante Welt - just a fashion magazine, no patterns). My mom has attemped a 30s pattern from Record, and she says it was pretty tricky - and she's an experienced sewer. The sheets already look very confusing, there's so much on it, and of course the instructions are kept super short - after all, at the time everybody knew how these things worked anyway.

    I had a look through my issues of Elegante Welt, but there's nothing about ADEFA in them. I had just been thinking that maybe they would advertise in fashion magazines too...

    Sorry - I forgot to add, the book I meant is "Forties Fashion" by Jonathan Walford - yes, that's Jonathan who replied to this thread as well. I can really recommend it. It doesn't concentrate on one country but shows fashions from all over the world.

    Mary Jane - the suit you had the link to is the earlier Adefa label I was thinking of - before the eagle logo label.

    I found a black velvet dress with some fabric flowers and leaves, with a label "ADEFA Arbeitsgemeinschaft Deutsch e.V. , Deustcher Fabrikant," so on.
