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 women’s fashion pages of this issue you will find inspiration for the design of trendy rainwear. Whether mackintosh, anorak or rain cape: bright signal colours, transparency, shine and all-over prints are now in vogue. Inspirational and impressive are also the creations of Berlin fashion designer and stylist Peggy Schuller. She designs spectacular clothing art exclusively for photo productions. For many years she has worked hand in hand with her husband, photographer Kristian Schuller. Starting on page 9 you will find the second part of a step-by-step guide to draping a blouse with a sleeve from the neckline. Afterwards we will give instructions in the pattern technique for the pattern construction of rainwear.
On the men’s fashion pages this time we show you trendy fashion with a feel-good factor. Soft, fluffy fabrics such as cord, velvet, velour, fleece, knitwear, fakefur and woollen fabrics characterise the fashion of the upcoming seasons. Afterwards we will introduce you to a rare profession behind the museum scenes. Graduate restorer Beate Kneppel, head of textile restoration at the Bavarian National Museum (BNM) in Munich, will give us an insight into her varied and exciting work with historical textiles and garments. Starting on page 8 we will introduce you to the extraordinary Mosel Tweed. Master tailor and head of the Academy of Clothing Makers, Brigitte Pappe, in cooperation with partners from spinning, weaving and cloth finishing, developed a unique fabric made from the wool of the Merino sheep from the Moselle region, which had previously been declared a waste product. In this issue we also explain why the prosperity of a society can be read in body heights. In the pattern technique we show you the grading of a coat. Finally, we introduce the slow fashion label MEASURE.ME, which succeeds in breaking new social and ecological ground in the fashion sector.
The enclosed pattern contains two different long coats for women (in European sizes 36 – 46).
