Hi all

With all the talk of the demise of the Burdastyle magazine I thought that I would share my joy in sewing from the Patrones magazine.

The designs are very interesting, with a lot of variety in each magazine and the garments are easy to trace. Of course I don't understand Spanish but with the help of google translate and years of sewing I am able to sew almost any garment.

I purchased a lot of back issues from a Danish site www.brylau-mode.dk and if you purchase a few at a time the postage is not so bad. They currently have all the current issues as well as back issues. The service was excellent and it was an easy process to purchase.

I have also purchased from a German e-bay seller "Ischillyideen" and her service was also excellent.

Just last week I purchased the latest Patrones Joven (which is great), the November Burdastyle (in Spanish) and the latest Patrones Talles Grande for $53.46 AUD (including postage) from a Spanish site "noparesdeleer.com". Once you are at this site (it is a very extensive site) you need to click on "Revistas" then "Moda", then "Patrones" which will take you to all the magazines they sell with patterns in them, including Patrones, Burdastyle and Diana. I found the site easy to navigate and purchase and have received my delivery today 17th November after placing the order on the 10th of November. The magazines came very well packed and delivered by parcel post with a signature required.

I hope this helps. Enjoy.

Angela

Nathalie at resew.de also carries Patrones (and La Mia Boutique AND KnipMode). I've ordered from her in the past, and her shipping rates are reasonable for multiple magazines:

My Webpage

Natalie on eBay also often has a few issues of Patrones listed with La Mia Boutique. I've had good experiences with her as well:

I am a huge Patrones fan too - they are terrific, great to look at and have such interesting styles.

That is fantastic postal time and cost Aussie Sewer - I used to get mine from StoffArt and they were good but they took an eternity to get to Australia. 7 days is fabulous.

I've swapped to a direct subscription now (100 Euros) but for Aussies there may also be a couple of sources here if anyone is after individual copies (although they are few months behind). Anyone in Melbourne, I think Mag Nation in the City Centre may stock Patrones, I spotted one. There is also an online Aussie source http://www.craftymamas.net/patrones-294.html. Haven't tried them but the price sounds reasonable.

Hi Jacquie

I often check in on your blog to see what wonderful creation you're working on. I love so much of what you choose to make.

I am I thinking that I should take out a subscription for Patrones as I tend to buy every issue from somewhere online and I'm sure it is the most expensive way to go. Can you please let me know who you subscribe through for Patrones?

I've recently let my Burda subscription lapse and I also subscribe to La Mia Boutique which I may keep up when it is due to renew in May but I definitely prefer Patrones out of all the 3. Having said that I love La Mia Boutique but it has a more casual vibe.

Thanks
Angela

I think this topic should be pinned, very good references. IIRC, I read about Brylau on FerhTrade and I discovered No pares de leer via a Google search.

Haven't bought from NPDL but checked the prices and it's 25 euros for international shipping and the issue is just 4 euros or something. So it would make sense to buy several.

exchange rate today according to Google : 30 euros = 40 USD

IMO, the copyright thing and the design of the Patrones web page are very frustrating to curious sewers who want to see the insides of an issue. Good thing we have kind bloggers like Melissa and Jacquie and others!

Thanks for all those links, I bought a year-subscription for Patrones from Global Magazines for about $185.00 US. I haven't done a comparison of prices with these sources, but I will. Global Magazines

So far the service has been great, they arrive about a month after publication.

I love Patrones, but has anyone found errors in the patterns? Or is my lack of Spanish?

Thank you for starting this thread, AussieSewer and thanks to everyone else contributing sources for getting the magazines. My experience with LMB has definitely increased my interest in European pattern mags. I think I'd like to check out the Patrones Tallas Grandes and it's great to know where I can get it. I actually know Spanish (not fluently, but enough) so maybe Patrones will be a little easier than LMB... although it's not like I know sewing terms in Spanish!

Oh, thank you so much for those nice comments Angela. You've made my day!

I was initially buying nearly every issue individually too and it did get rather expensive. I've just gone to a direct subscription from Patrones for 100 euros a year (inclusive of postage). If you send them an email (suscripciones@rba.es) you get a response in English (takes about a week) and it is all pretty smooth and they let you pay by bank transfer as well as other methods. I spent hours trying to subscribe through their website before realising that it doesn't work unless you are in Spain! Email is the go!

Last year I was subscribing through ModeInfo which was really good but it just dramatically hiked its prices up to 231 Euros (cough!!!! I get the impression they find Patrones pesky and don't want to deal with it).

However, I have seen some PR'ers comments that they have had problems with direct subscription through Patrones. Personally, I haven't had any problems and I know someone else who subscribes that way and she hasn't had any problems. Maybe just be really clear with the address.

Thank you Aussie Sewer for starting this thread.

Hen's BlogHen's Blog
has just posted a table comparing the bust/waist/hip measurements of the European magazines plus Vogue that you all may be interested in.
Click on the table to enlarge it.

It's really interesting to see the differences in measurements. For example Ottobre probably fits me the best for measurements, but Knipmode is the best for my height.
