Thanks for the article! I didn't know those resources for these magazines, very good to know. There's an online version of the Dutch De Gracieuse as well, which I did a write-up on a while back. They're not very easy to browse, and the pattern sheets aren't very high resolution, but it's definitely workable! My blog on how to find them is here :). https://ateliernostalgia.wordpress.com/2014/03/25/de-gracieuse-a-walk-through/
Thank you very much for adding to the knowledge base here, Myrthe, we appreciate it very much! I'm glad you enjoyed the article!
These are wonderful, thank you for sharing them! I love these old magazines so much.
This is so useful, thank you! I have been desperately trying to decipher that website for the last few weeks! I just finally matched up an image and a pattern! You are a star!
I've gone through the German site with Der Bazar and listed the years that have pattern sheets. You can spot those pages fairly easily if you use the overview button as the pattern pages are quite distinctive. 1857 1858 1859 1865, some 1867, just 2 pages 1868 1869 1872 1873 1874 1877 1878 1882, but only 2 pages 1886 1887 1888 1889 1890 1891 1892 1893 1894 1895 1896 1897 1898
1870 you can see it has the pattern sheets in a pocket on the back page but they didn't take them out to scan them!
A comment on the Der Bazar files - you can choose between a PDF containing the entire year or a separate PDFs. The whole year PDF file works for browsing the pictures but if you want to read the text clearly or to use the pattern sheets then you need to download the individual issue PDFs or the individual pattern sheet PDF files.
