Fashion Feature at the Rußwurmsches Herrenhaus

The historical setting of the Rußwurmsches Herrenhaus in Breitungen in Thuringia was our backdrop for the May issue of sisterMAG. Our opulent fashion editorial features the newest designs from our fashion director Evi – clearly inspired by Vermeer’s masterpiece »Girl with the Pearl Earring«! On June 1st, our @sistermagpatterns shop will finally launch so you’ll be able to purchase and download all of these (and many more) patterns in different sizes!

Fashion Feature at Rußwurmschen Herrenhaus

Memories of Russwurm

For our May 2019 issue, we set out to achieve a very special goal. For this we ventured to the Rußwurm manor (Rußwurmsches Herrenhaus), in the Breitungen municipality of Thuringia, where many centuries have inscribed themselves in the washed-out sandstones, weathered half-timbered beams, worn steps, and soot from the Thirty Years’ War. In this historical setting, we staged clothes made of chambray and nettle, reminiscent of pieces from Vermeer’s paintings. What might surprise you is that each creation is suitable as an IT piece in your modern DIY wardrobe!

47-1 Blue-gray Pleated Trousers

47-2 Chambray Blouse in Blue

We love this blouse cut: As the lower form of the shawl collar, the upper collar and lapel of this angular spade collar are seamlessly connected. The collar is therefore not only attached, but also cut to size with the blouse


These patterns will be available in our new @sistermagpatterns shop from June 1. Subscribe to our newsletter and get your discount code as soon as it is released!


48-3 Dress made of Chambray

The dress is made of Chambray, also known as batiste. The fabric is characterized by differently coloured warp and weft threads, which give the fabric an extraordinary shine.

Our cut is defined by a deep skirt part below the waist. With puffy sleeves and a low V-neckline, it is both modern and a little flashback to past eras.


The nettle blouse is put on at the collar cuff and falls loosely. It can be tucked into the lower part but also worn casually over narrow trousers. Pay special attention to beautiful details like buttons when it comes to blouses. We found our vintage buttons at the market.

A quick favourite in the wardrobe: the four-way skirt with button placket. Crafted out of rough textile, it can be easily washed and is a go-to for both leisure and business appointments!

Because white blouses don’t have to be boring: Our cover blouse is an absolute eye-catcher with a super-wide collar, ruffled sleeves, and pearl buttons. Combined with narrow trousers, it can be fashioned as a business blouse. Or you can combine it as we do with a heavy, long Pepita skirt for a Prada-esque look. ;)
