    Do you have a favourite sewing pattern?

    I've been following a sewing challenge called sew? I knit! and I've found it really useful for discovering sewing patterns I might like to try.

    I was inspired to buy Simplicity 4589 and give it a try.

    I am wondering if anyone here has a favourite pattern they like to sew that they would recommend to me, a beginner sewer?

    fitzpatterns are really good, but printing them out all tiled is kinda a puzzle...the other night the bf and I actually had a good time sorting one out. They have a shrug pattern and their wrap skirt pattern is pretty cool. Skirt patterns are definately the easiest patterns to start off with. Plus they usually teach you some sewing basics if you don't already know them yet...like sewing a curve and a closure of some kind. Zippers aren't as hard as people make them sound, but I usually substitute buttons for zippers in patterns since there are all sorts of cute buttons out there and it lets me add a little pizzaz here and there without being overwhelming. Sorry such a long post.
