Dank des Internets war es schon möglich auf Amerikanische Schnitte auszuweichen ,allerdings war die Bezahlung eher Schwierig .Ich lebte zu dem Zeitpunkt in Frankfurt am Main und kannte einige Amerikaner,die dort bzw in Hanau stationiert waren und mir häufig Schnitte aus den USA mitbrachten und sie mir von ihren Familien schicken liessen .Oder ich habe die Verkäufer angeschrieben ,ihnen das Geld vorab geschickt( Oder von entsprechenden US Freunden überweisen lassen ) und sie mir die Schnittmuster ,die ich in der Ebay.com ersteigert habe .Witzig ,oder ?? Wieviel Vertrauen man auch hatte Okay ,es waren jetzt keine grösseren Beträge ,aber dennoch .
Ich möchte hier nun eine Auswahl ,der Schnittmuster zeigen ,die ich verwendet habe .
Die Schnitte sind heute alle Out Of Print ,also werden nicht mehr gedruckt ,aber man bekommt sie noch in der Ebay oder bei Etsy ,allerdings zu Preisen ,die manchmal weit entfernt von gut und böse sind .Einige werde in neuer Version von den Big 4 nachgedruckt .
Da dies aber recht viele sind ,habe ich sie auf verschiedene Post aufgeteilt und nach Gothic , Medieval Gothic,Alltags und Abend Kleidung
There is a blog post that has been buzzing around my head for a while, inspired by the fact that there is little communitywith gothics ,who sew and also have a blog (or maybe I just don't know their blogs, especially here in Germany). There is the question , which pattern are suitable for Goth Style. When I started sewing again in the late 90s, there wasnt much on the German sewing pattern market that was suitable for Gothic. At that time, there was still the Natron and Soda forum, , where a large number of Pattern were designed and provided by private individuals. The sewing pattern page has just been discontinued due to lack of care and time. The sewing forum has remained.
Thanks to the internet, it was already possible to switch to American Pattern, but the payment was rather difficult. I was living in Frankfurt am Main at the time and knew some Americans ,who were stationed there or in Hanau, and who often brought me Pattern from the USA and they had sent to me by their families. Or I wrote to the sellers, sent them the money in advance (or had them transferred by US friends) and they send me the patterns that I bought at Ebay.com. Funny, right?
I would now like to show you a selection of the sewing patterns that I used.
The cuts are all out of print today, but you can still get them on Ebay or on Etsy, but to prices that are sometimes far from good and bad. Some will be reprinted in a new version of the Big 4
But there are quite a few, so I have divided them into different Post about Gothic, Medieval Gothic, Everyday and Evening clothes
For the Start I choose The Begotten Series by Simplicity
All of these patterns appeared in 1999/2000, I had them all in my collection, but never sewed any of them, so when I got into my second Gothic Off phase and sewed almost only the Middle Ages, I had a lot my cuts were sold, besides, they were often up to 12 and because of my illness I would not have fit in these cuts anymore. I would have had to change them all very much
