My Pattern Stash

Wanna take a peek?  I know I'd love to look through some bloggers' pattern collections.
Here, in no particular order, are the patterns in my stash that I have not yet made and have no fabric matched up with.

Not shown here are the books I have, Sew Serendipity, the Colette Sewing Handbook and Twinkle Sews.

Lots for knits in the Ottobre (4/09), a pretty coat and UNDERWEAR too (which I have actually done a first muslin with!).
McCalls 6318 might be a good one to use quilting cotton for.  I rarely reach for it when thinking of a garment for myself any more, but I hate missing out on all the gorgeous prints.

I have actually muslined that cute Butterick 60's pattern with the collar and tried to make it in my "nice" fabric too, but it turned out a wadder just because I wasn't focused.  :(  I want to try it again but I need to be inspired by another fabric.
Why did I buy that Very Easy Vogue wrap dress?  no idea.
Simplicity 2343 is another one that I tried and wasn't careful enough/didn't measure well.  I still love the look and want to tackle it again.
I have several pattern regrets, some that I may never get to, but just keep around because, well, because I don't know what else to do with them right now.
For instance that duffel bag... Soooo cute, but I didn't realize it wasn't lined and the reviews I've read make me scared to wrestle with it.

Even so, I have PLENTY to work on and a growing list of patterns I'd like to add to these!


  1. nice collection! You will be busy!

  2. I never really thought about nosing through someone else's pattern stash... that was pretty fun! And the very easy vogue wrap dress, that actually looks pretty nice! It has potential.
