Schnittquelle patterns, formerly only available in smaller sizes, sent me an email saying they had just finished upsizing a certain number of their patterns to size 52 (their sizing and draft is quite comparable to Burda, I find).

To see those that have been enlarged, click on Neu: bis Gr. 52

Maßtabellen means measurements, and if you click on that, it will give you the bust/waist/hip numbers in centimeters for each size.

If you're interested in the pattern layout, click on the word Schnittlagenplan underneath the list of sizes.

They will be working on the rest of their collection, gradually adding more sizes to existing designs. They also say they welcome your wishes and suggestions in this matter.

Schnitquelle patterns are one size like StyleArc, not multisized, and they come with seam allowances drawn on the pattern.

Mr. Yildiz, the spokesman (and husband of the designer, I think), is a tremendously nice and helpful guy. He writes some English, but things flow better in email with him if you know a bit of German.

The ordering process is easy, and they take paypal.

Thanks for pointing out this pattern company. I'm not sure if I've seen them before. I'm not looking for plus size patterns, but they have some really nice styles.

By the way, they are running a sale through the end of July - 10% off 1 pattern, 20% off 2 patterns, and 30% off 3 patterns. Paypal payment went through without a hitch.

I can highly recommend their tee patterns (need to review them ...), the instructions are, however, very brief, similar to (or even more frugal?) to BWOF/burdastyle.

If you happen to make a trip to Freiburg, Germany: The patterns are sold at a very nice fabric store and you can try on a number of garments made from the patterns. They are usually made in size 38 or 40 but it gives you an idea how they fit.

In early July, I made use of the sales and visited the store, and they confirmed they ship to the US but that it recently had taken about 8 weeks for an American customer. Elona, was this you?

Happy Sewing!

These patterns have been reviewed and discussed at artissanssquare.com, and just googling the name turns up some other reviews and photos on the internet.

I have talked with Mr. Yildiz about the delivery time, because--astonishingly enough--my last order took only five days to get from Germany to southern California! When I complimented Mr. Yildiz on such speedy delivery, he said they always try for the fastest way to ship, but that very short period of time was frankly amazing, especially since one of their American customers (perhaps the poor lady you mention) had recently had to wait six weeks for hers to arrive.

In fact, I have placed four or five orders from Schnittquelle, and none has ever taken longer than two weeks to get to me. Why this is I do not know, but yay!

Thanks everyone for the enabling. I just ordered three patterns. I've been wanting to purchase from this company for a while but I wasn't sure about payment, etc. The July sale plus knowing I could use PayPal was all I needed. I can't wait for my patterns to arrive.

Elona & Belinda,

Which patterns have you ordered -- if I may ask? It's always fun to see what others like in collections that -- at least so far -- target a national market rather than an international one.

Happy Sewing!

I have several pieces of boiled wool in my fabric stash I really want to evict so I bought three jacket patterns to help my cause. It was hard to narrow it down to only three as there were many contenders but I went with what I thought would work in my wardrobe. They are mostly simple styles but I often start with something simple when trying a new-to-me pattern company.

Really fun to see how we opt for different styles! I can highly recommend tops VENEDIG and LISSABON. I should review them ... Skirt WESTPORT is an UFO (muslin-stage), it does not flatter my body shape. Dress BERLIN is in my stash but want to do it as a tee only. Bought now tee AURICH during the sales, as jackets BRÜNN and SYLT.
We could think about a SCHNITTQUELLE pattern sew along

If you like Schnittquelle's patterns, i.e. the one's for boiled wool, you'll also like Garconne patterns (NAYY). To browse through the patterns, click on the little technical drawings for tops, skirts etc. Garconne patterns are multisize (= all sizes in the envelope).

Happy Sewing!

I don't think anyone has asked this yet ...Are the instructions in English?
