Alana at Lazy Stitching posted this today about a couple of pattern sales in the US.
I have just placed an order at each site. Even with the steep international shipping costs, the patterns are still a bargain. I’ve just bought seven Vogue patterns (I would have liked a couple more, but the shipping costs jump sharply after seven) for a grand total of $52.93 which is well under £40.00. Here in the UK, unless I’ve been looking in all the wrong places, I’d be lucky to find Vogue patterns for under about £12.00 each. For some unknown reason they won’t seem to ship the Butterick and McCalls patterns to the UK, but I had no problems buying the Vogue patterns.
At the other site I bought another 15 patterns. Ten of the Simplicity at $0.99 each (limited to ten per customer), plus a few others from my wish list. Including the shipping costs these work out at around $5 per pattern which is around £3.30 each. Again, a bargain price for the UK.
I really, really didn’t need to buy any new patterns, but who can resist such a bargain, especially for such pretty things:
