I've been following a bunch of sewing bloggers [cough] Gertie, Peter & others [cough] for quite some time now and I keep seeing references to Colette patterns. Maybe I'm missing something since I don't actually own any, but for some reason they just don't appeal to me. I'm trying to figure out what exactly it is, but I just can't put my finger on it. And as MANY of you know, I LOVE me some sewing patterns. To the tune of nearly 1000 of them at last count. Yes, that was One Thousand. A one with THREE zeros after. Ahem.
Mens', Womens', Childrens', Toys and other things.
Vintage, Vintage Repro, Modern, all eras.
Downloadable, Printed, Non-Printed, Self-Drafted.
Big Four, Independents, Mail Order and More.
So it's not a case of "I ONLY sew [insert pet pattern type here]".
What is it about a sewing pattern that draws you in or turns you off? How do you decide whether to try a new pattern company or take a pass? Do you have any special criteria? Or is it just a gut feeling? What say you dear readers?
