FREE Vintage 1940s Sewing Patterns German Die Alma Mode

Winter 1947 | 1948

Enjoy These Four FREE Vintage 1940s Sewing Patterns German Die Alma Mode, this type of system is similar Lutterloh and other systems and one of the easiest for pattern making in my opinion. All you have to do is click on the link and print out the pieces and follow the directions–be sure that you are working with a metric tape measure and the correct rules.

By using this system you can create a pattern sized to you in nine steps:

  1. Bust measurements
  2. Hip Measurements
  3. Place diagram on pattern paper.
  4. Insert pin into measuring scale.
  5. Pinning the scale to the pattern.
  6. Making dots
  7. Completing all dots.
  8. Connecting the dots.
  9. Cutting the paper pattern and transferring it onto the fabric.

I plan to add a list of supplies–just thought about..stay tuned..

  1. ok a couple questions.
    1 is the pattern full size(pre draft) when you print it out on a regular piece of printer paper.
    2. what materials would be best for this?

      1. I do have a link for the tutorial on how to draft these patterns–this is for advanced dressmakers. I am on my way to teach a class right now I will provide you with that information by the weekend and please accept my apology for the delay.

  2. The note on the pattern says for the skirt of 508A, see pattern 503. I really love 508a with the wide skirt and the large floral print. Do you know if the page for pattern 503 is available, please? Googling turns up only this page for “Die Alma Mode.” Also, do you know what sizing scale this company used? Thank you so much for posting these!

    1. Melissa, thank you I am glad you’ve found the patterns useful.

      I will check to see if 503 is available, I’ll let you know either way and will post the pattern if it’s available.

      With respect to your question about sizing you might want to check this link https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.400747113366289.1073741831.130291717078498&type=3 because the sizing is European and is comparable to Lutterloh System.

      Kind regards,
