13 Jul The Usual Suspects
In this case we are not talking about the movie that starred the brilliant Kevin Spacey! We are actually referring to Sewing Patterns.
For the most part we find everyone uses Simplicity, New Look, Burda, McCalls, Kwik Sew, and Vogue! I know there are quite a few others, but those are The Usual Suspects when looking for a commercial pattern.
We want to know which ones you prefer? Which have the easiest directions? Do you use any other patterns by anyone else?
I am a actually a big fan of BurdaStyle.com, but having to download the pattern, cut the edges, and put it together.
Nope! I just can’t bring myself to do it.
It is hard enough to get a commercial pattern, and cut that sucker out. I now have a routine, it goes as follows:
Buy pattern. Take pattern home. Soon as you get a free 5 minutes, cut it out, so it is ready to go when you are ready to sew!
Share some of your favorites, that are not usual patterns!
Reminder: Don’t forget, July’s Sew Along is a Refashion Challenge. You don’t have to thrift, you can take something in your closet, you don’t usually wear, and turn it into something fabulous!
