I'm a newbie so I've been limiting my pattern collection to the big 4 (a la $1-$4 at Hancock's and JoAnn's). I've bought some New Looks from WalMart and a couple patterns that I really wanted from Ebay or Etsy.

Well, I splurged on these two and can't wait til I can tackle them :)

I've been sewing for..ummmm... a LONG time, and I still get excited about new patterns. I think you picked a couple of good ones (I've made the Thurlows) and hope that you have fun with both of them.

Thanks ladies!

Funny Karla I was *just* browsing your pattern reviews after coming across your posts in the Thurlow thread when the pattern was first released last summer :)

I've heard the Thurlow is really good (picked it up myself)!

Have fun! I get really excited about new patterns. . . just wish I had the time to sew them all up. :(

I've spent about an hour or so each evening this week cutting patterns and fabrics. Sunday and Monday will be sewing days for me. I have (obviously) cut more than I can sew but I hate the tracing and cutting and fitting parts and just want to sew!!! :)

I'm not quite pear shaped but have huge, muscular quads and an undefined waist that makes buying pants tough. I'm hoping I can sew them up with minimal hassle!

I love patterns. I know I will never sew them all, but I love sitting and looking at them and dreaming about what they could be. It's so relaxing.

I'm a bit dense here but what is it about the Thurlow pattern? Who or what is Thurlow? I've seen different reviews and comments and to me, it's just another pants/slack/trouser pattern. OR, haven't I been reading the reviews close enough? And what is the difference between pants/slacks/trousers? Okay, now I'll go hide my head in shame

Rhoda, the Sewaholic pattern line is drafted for pear-shaped individuals, and when Tasia came out with a pants pattern, there was much excitement, since it's designed for people with more than a 10" difference between waist and hip measurments. It requires far fewer adjustments than other pants patterns, and has very nice beginner-friendly instructions, too. http://www.sewaholicpatterns.com/product/1203-thurlow-trousers
