More patterns for making your own clothes

Another excellent catalogue with patterns for making your own clothes is Burda. This magazine is originally from Germany and can be found in several languages across Europe. I remember my mom buying this magazine when I was small ( back in the 60's) and to think today I have my own subscription. It is published monthly and has patterns for women of different ages and different sizes.

The only draw back is that you have to trace the pattern on tissue paper, before you can actually place the pattern on the fabric and cut the fabric. This was my job when I was smaller that my mom always assigned me!
