Can you ever have enough patterns?

The sensible side of me says yes you can have enough patterns, there are only so many hours in the day, there is only so much sewing a person could do and there is no point owning more patterns than you can ever hope to sew. The collector in me however says no you can never have enough patterns, especially when there are new releases that you simply must have. I balance both points of view and sit somewhere in the middle, I have plenty of patterns and don't 'need' any more but occasionally there are one or two that grab my eye and make their way into my collection.

The latest patterns I have acquired are from Hot Patterns; Three-Piece-Sweet Jacket, Tank & Scarf , the Athleisure big and beautiful overside hoodie and the Metropolitan Deneuve Tuxedo Shirt, Tunic & Shirtdress. I am particularly looking forward to trying the tank pattern as it looks like something I will get a lot of use from.

  1. I really liked 3 piece jacket pattern and was tempted....but have way too many. I sewed the Tuxedo Shirt in a linen which was too heavy, it just did not work for me. Trudy always has some interesting patterns and new methods of construction.
