I found Vogue's fitting shell, 1004, and a Google search turns up two Buttericks, for Misses and Women, but Simplicity is impossible for me to find.

Anybody know if they have one or not?

I have a Butterick and you're welcome to it.

I don't think simplicity offers a fitting shell any longer. They did years ago.

Is it the 5746? I wonder, since Butterick and Vogue are from the same company, if they are the same? I'm waiting for the V to come to me.

Would the Butterick be redundant, do you think?

Why do they keep making these odd decisions? They revamp the website but int'l orders are still a hassle (see my comment on the web site thread) and no line drawing.

Instead of all those borings "new"patterns of late, they could have kept the fitting shell. Whatever!

I guess I need to find a fitted dress pattern to substitute.

I, too, think that they no longer offer a fitting shell. Simplicity isn't too different from Vogue or Butterick so if you use one of their fitting shells, you could probably just apply the same alterations to Simplicity patterns. To be on the safe side, you could cut and baste 1" seam allowances.

Yes, it's 5746. The Butterick might be redundant, being as it's from Vogue, which doesn't make sense to me either, because they should do away with one.

There might be a few nuances in the two; or you might want to get the McCalls because I believe they use Simplicity (that's why I think Simplicity did away with theirs)

Which patterns, besides Simplicity, do you use most often? Vogue or Butterick? That would be the answer.

I decided to buy this because I like Butterick patterns but then I took Shannon's Make a Bodice Muslin class so I don't need the fitting shell anymore.

Well, I sew more Burda than anything but when I fall for the Big 4, it seems it's mostly, in order: Vogue, Simplicity, McCall's and Butterick.

I guess that answers that!

The Vogue and Butterick shell are identical... I bought and compared both of them once out of curiosityVogue and Butterick are actually made by McCall. I haven't checked out their shell, but I'm guessing it's pretty much the same. Simplicity is the only separate company of the big 4. They distribute New Look, but they don't actually design them, so the fit is quite different.

The one thing that I like about the Butterick is that it includes a basic dress with the fitting shell, so you can compare the two and see how they change the basic block to make fashion patterns.
