Maybe this tip is not news, in which case sorry. To make my BWOF patterns more easily searchable, I photocopy the pages with the drawings of the garments, and separate the pattern sheets. Next to each drawing of a garment, I note the sheet number and line colour, I haven't done yardage but maybe this would be good too. Then I file these in a ring file, slipping the drawing sheets and each pattern sheet into a separate plastic sleeve. I don't generally need or use the making up instructions, which are a bit minimal anyway, so I leave these with the mag. Now I am starting to organise a kind of directory of styles, that is noting where I can find for example wide leg pant patterns, raglan sleeve etc. This is a do it as you go along exercise, so my sheet of paper gets added to as and when I have the time.
