I am becoming a self-proclaim pattern fiend. From the time decising to learn how to sew, I have been purchasing patterns. Although, I have not gone to the fabric store, I use online to get them because it’s cheaper to purchase them online than retail. My first purchase of sewing pattern was from a website, www.sewingpatterns.com where there are hundreds of dozens patterns including Burda Style, Butterick, and Kwik. The patterns are usually discounted from 20% to 50% which does save some money and paying full price at retail stores. People talk their pattern stash, but I have a pattern stash of more than 30 patterns (easy and very easy). I registered for Butterick, McCall, Simplicity, and Vogue Patterns newsletters whenever they have a sell, I go onto the the site and order for one-third of the orginal price, and the reason for having more than 30 patterns.
I decided not to purchase anymore patterns, but it two weeks ago Butterick had patterns for $4.99 and ended up ordering two. In the process of ordering patterns, I decided to sew clothes with a plan and created a poster of photos cut out from magazines as my inspiration of the type of wardrobe to sew and use patterns that closely represent the poster. Tonight, I will go home and organize my patterns in the order of sewing. I need to complete the two projects from this past weekend, and do a couple of muslin pieces for a pair of pants and skirt from a Simplicity pattern that should be easy after practicing sewing in a zipper. Tomorrow, I need to make a trip to the fabric during my lunch hour and purchase a couple of zippers and lining becaus the fabric is wool and don’t want it rubbing up against my skin when done.
