The magazine specialized in fashion and pattern making is published ten times a year as a turnaround edition with topics on women’s and men’s fashion. The magazine is available for download in English. Each issue of M. Müller & Sohn magazine contains an enclosed sewing pattern.
On the designer look pages of women’s fashion we present breathtaking lingerie dresses. Whether it’s a trendy slip dress or a classic corsage dress: the lingerie-look dresses come in the finest fabrics such as satin, silk, tulle and lace and can be styled equally well for underneath or over. We continue with a tailoring product that has managed to revolutionise the fashion world over the years and has made its presence felt on catwalks around the world: Vlieseline interlinings. On the occasion of the 75th anniversary, we present the interlining that gives inner strength and show which developments from the wide Vlieseline range are suitable for which applications. In the pattern technique we show a basic pattern block for Bermuda shorts in plus size. When developing ready-to-wear patterns, the proportions change with larger sizes. The difference between waist and hips becomes smaller and the figure thus straighter. We explain at which construction points this is addressed to achieve a good fit. This is followed by pattern variations for three summer trouser models. In addition, we show what needs to be taken into account in terms of cutting if you have a strong seat or a strong body, so as not to throw a construction out of balance. If you have always wanted to make your own quilted fabric but didn’t know exactly how to do it, we can help you on page 28. Here we show you step by step what to consider when sewing fabrics with the volume fleece.
On the designer look pages of menswear, we focus on the detailed possibilities of hem design on the trouser leg. Whether doubled, buttoned, with a zip or vent – it only looks good if it has been designed at the highest level of workmanship. The tailcoat is the perfect garment in the eyes of men’s tailor Markus Schnurr. Why this is so, what stages he went through before taking over the atelier in his hometown of Offenburg five years ago, and why he wouldn’t trade places with any other profession, we present in our portrait starting on page 6. The pattern technique deals with the subject of dance sport and we show the pattern construction for a complete dance outfits consisting of a dress shirt body, dance tails and dance trousers. On page 24 we have put on paper an interview with Jürgen Zinsmeister from Stoeffler GmbH, who explains what constitutes high-quality pattern paper, which quality standards they meet and which products are new in the range. We also had the pleasure of interviewing a training luminary of the German tailoring craft for this issue: Heinz-Josef Radermacher has been training tailors in his Düsseldorf atelier since 1977 and therefore knows exactly what is important. He is of the opinion that first-class training is the most important foundation for a successful career as a tailor and is strongly in favour of continuing to train at a high level. The article “From the ground up” can be found on page 26.
The enclosed pattern The Little Black Dress contains two elegant dresses, one dress with long vents and one dress with a cut out (in European sizes 36 – 50).
