So everyone has a favorite pattern that they make again and again.
But which of the pattern companies is your sewing room filled with? Are these the ones that you make the most often?
I think Mine at the moment has to be Simplicity, favorite wise but I think the shocking thing is most of my patterns are Vogue and I've never made one yet! (Damn 3 for the price of 1!)
I've never heard of decades of style! Do they have a website?
yes, here it is: http://www.decadesofstyle.com/
If I'm buying them new, I go for Butterick or Vogue because they're the only ones I've found with the vintage reproduction patterns (I only buy vintage styles :-).
I seem to have ended up with a lot of Simplicity and Academy (a New Zealand pattern label) when it comes to vintage patterns though. I haven't tried using any of the Academy ones yet, but the other three brands all seem pretty good. Vogue can be a bit weird with some of their instructions though, and I've found some of their vintage reproduction patterns can have quite a bit of unexpected hand-sewing which I'm not too fond of. The patterns themselves turn out well, though. :-)
Like Debbie, I'm a fan of Burda patterns. The alterations I have to make for Burda are minimal when compared with what I have to do for Simplicity, Butterick, Vogue, McCalls, etc.
