For those who like sewing, here is the largest selection of patterns on the internet (Burda, Butterick, Wallies, Vogue, etc.).

Patterns ranging from clothes for adults and children to fashion accessories, bags, home decoration and even window blinds.

My favourite is Vogue, not only for the fashion clothes, but the "haute-couture" looking hats, bags and pet carriers.

Wallies proposes wallpaper cutouts (animals, flowers, etc.) for home decorating.

And, an interesting dictionary:

For the translators working in this field, the german Burda is translated in a lot of languages, so that you will surely be able to find a version in your language.

I'ts raining here, I'm considering to sew something.

Nice week-end.

Great Monique! Dec 5, 2004

Thanks a lot Monique. I put it into favorites as well. Now, if only I didn't have to work such long hours on the computer, I could get back to sewing up a storm.

Yes!! Dec 6, 2004

It's my favorite patterns source for years already!

I usually just browse the site, write down the patterns numbers and then "place an order" to my mothere back home in Canada (for McCalls, Butterick & Simplicity mostly)
