There's a sewing pattern magazine I get here in Germany, called Meine Nähmode, that contains 12-15 Simplicity and New Look patterns. It may also be published in other European countries under different names. It comes out four times per year. The patterns are printed on a large sheet so you must trace them, and not all sizes are provided. I just picked up the fall issue (3/2013), and I went through and identified all the patterns by number. Here is the list, with sizes, should anyone else want to know what's in the issue.
Simplicity 1796 Misses plus size dresses, 44/46, 48/50, 52/54
New Look 6004 Misses learn to sew skirts, 32/34, 36/38, 40/42
New Look 6099 Misses jackets, 38, 40, 42
New Look 6735 Misses separates, 38/40, 42/44, 46/48
New Look 6963 Misses tops, 34/36, 38/40, 42/44
New Look 6012 Misses separates, 34/36, 38/40, 42/44
Simplicity 1812 Misses plus size skirts and tops, 44/46, 48/50, 52/54
Simplicity 1920 Misses sportswear, 34/36, 38/40, 42/44

New Look 6076* Misses tops, 34/36, 38/40, 42/44
New Look 6164 Misses knit sportswear, 38, 40, 42, 44

Great info, thanks for sharing LoriB!
This issue could also be interesting to NL fans because it seems it's mostly those patterns.
IIRC, it also comes out in FR (and ESP?) and I was gifted an issue. Can't remember the name.

Wow...thank you for cross-referencing all of the patterns!
For anyone interested in the French version that lakaribane mentioned above, it's released under the name "Tendances Couture".
