I'm wondering...there must be scheduled release dates for new patterns from the major pattern manufacturers, right? For example, I noticed that McCalls updated a while back, then Vogue, but Butterick hasn't for quite a while. Burda (US) updated, then Simplicity updated, then New Look. Is there any set schedule for these releases?

Here is their catalog showing when the new one will be shipped, which correlates to the release dates.

You can do this for all of them and find out when the schedule for them is.

Thanks, that helped a lot.

Looks like the schedules are roughly:
McCalls - January, April, August, November
Vogue - January, April, July, October/November
Butterick - March, June, September, December
Kwik Sew publishes 2X/year, March and October

So, the next new catalog on that side will indeed be Butterick...I suspect around the first of December.

On the Simplicity side, I haven't been able to find out as much detail. Simplicity and New Look publish 4X year, and I think they are staggered so that the two brands publish in different months. Not much info on the Burda publish cycle on Simplicity's site.

IIRC, Simplicity comes out a few weeks after Butterick or McCalls.
