Midge 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.
