I have a few patterns that have been made multiple times. When there aren't any major changes to the pattern, I feel like I should just update the first review. BUT it's so hard to get pictures to update that it becomes a MADDENING process.

How do you handle multiple reviews of the same pattern? Just write a new one and link the old one? Do you work through the photo issues??

I like to add to an existing review if there have been only minor changes. You could add links within the review to include the ew photos if it is difficult to change the main photo and the 2 additional shots in the gallery. You could also change the title of the pattern to alert readers that it is an update.

I love to see a pattern made up more than once. I need all the inspiration I can find!

Oh that's a good point Marec!

I just feel so..."wrong"...typing up what is essentially a duplicate of something I already posted!

I would post it as a new review with new photos, but link the actual sewing description from the previous review so you don't have to write it all again. We want to see all the different looks you make from one pattern! Also, if you replace the photo on the old one, wouldn't it disappear completely from PR?

Thanks SewLibra :)

What I've done the last couple of times was to create collages (of the old and new) and then have them both since we get up to 3 photos now.

I might just write new reviews though as I did this twice in the past few days and got horribly frustrated both times.

If I make major changes to the original pattern/garment, I make a new review and link to the old one. Just like this one.
