Hello All! I'm curious on how people treat their patterns. So time to confess...
Do you buy a pattern for a particular project, buy everything for it and sew it all up before you buy another?
Or do you buy 20 at a time and keep them until the day you find the perfect fabric or inspiration to recreate it?
I am the hoarder type... I have plenty of patterns unopened! Shameful I know!
I definitely am the Hoarder... I am so bad..I buy lots and lots of patterns, fabrics and notions.. I hate to confess, but I have bought patterns, got home, only to discover, I already have that particular pattern..The reason this happens...I have so many, I dont know what I have.ha
I have recently discovered vintage patterns..and now ,I am on a new hunt.. And yes...going overboard..but it is so much fun.. Almost as much fun ,as seeing the finished garment...once you sew that special pattern.
Answer to second part of the question: Yes. I always go to my stash first... and lots of times ,I find just what I was looking for.......... So..its very nice to have a stash...
Does everyone go to their stash to look first? I forgot to put that in the question. If I think I have something then I might have a look. But normally I'm straight on the internet looking for something else.
For example I own gotta be 18 Vogues from last season sale. I have never made one Vogue pattern in my life!
