Forties fashions, Swedish style - part 1

My latest vintage fair acquisition is this magazine from winter 1947, in what I think is Swedish.

I think that it is a catalogue of patterns. There are only a couple of advertisements, no editorial content, and a range of different illustration styles from flats through to detailed drawings. There are however back views of pretty much everything, so you can get a good idea of what the finished item would look like. So here are the first few pages, full of late 1940s fashion goodness. Click on any of the images to get a larger version.
