    hip sewing patterns

    Does anyone have reccomendations for where to find cool sewing patterns? I'm all about the Amy Butler and Lotta Jansdotter books so I think that I have home dec. covered but would love to find some patterns for clothing. Maybe kind of along the lines of the Built By Wendy patterns...

    thanks!

    usually "hip" clothing can be found in a commercial pattern company's book, especially Burda. you might have to change the fabric or details to make it more hip, but the basic shapes are there.

    also try www.hotpatterns.com

    The simplicity patterns generally have really cute "now" stuff. You just have to make sure to choose good fabric, and not use the sometimes bizarre combos of accessories that they put on their models.

    I also like Simplicity. They have a line of classic 1950's style dresses and tops that are really awesome.

    I was just at JoAnn's and saw that Simplicity now carries a whole line of Built By Wendy patterns. They looked really cute, too.
