Feedback on Lutterloh System

I wanted to acknowledge and thank all of you who responded to my earlier post on the Lutterloh System. I plan to give this a try in the near future. As some noted, you still have to tweak the patterns for length and such. The styles currently offered in the start up version are nice and very current in some respects with pattern offerings from BMV and Simplicity.


  1. Like you, I have reviewed the Lutterloh System with lots of interest. I haven't invested in it because of the cost. Please keep us updated on your progress. I may decide the investment is worth it -lots of people do like it a lot.

  2. Very behind reading blogs; been too busy sewing, LOL. Just thought I'd add my 2 cents worth. I have my mother's book from 1950ties some later magazines from the 60ties and the 70ties. I bought one magazine last year for my oldest daughter and my self to try out. I've made 2 1950ties blouses, a muslin to a blouse from the 70ties, a skirt from 70ties and a skirt from the new magazine. Especially with the vintage patterns there was a lot of fitting to do, mostly across the back and the sleeve area. I think this is the case with all vintage patterns. All in all as with all patterns you can't expect to draw a pattern and it will fit you straight away. Tweaks are needed especially for fitted garments and of course you need to be experienced enough to be able to cope without instructions. A pocket construction in one of the 1950 blouses nearly made me bald LOL, but what a sense of achievement when it finally clicked. I want to return to the patterns when I get my sloper redrawn because I think that will be a great help. This time around though, I'll let my head make the decisions not my desires and start off with some simple not too fitted garments. Looking forward to seeing how you get on if you do decide to go down that route.
