This week over at Colette Patterns I got a bit confessional and a bit needy. You see, until recently, I harboured something of a dark secret: I’m obsessed with making multiples of the same sewing pattern. I feel I have made a good case for justifying doing so, mind. All the hard work fitting your toile/muslin/first attempt, figuring the confusing instructions and of course the expense of the pattern in the first place: these are all good reasons to use the pattern multiple times.
‘So, what?’, I hear you ask, ‘You’ve made a couple of blouses from the same pattern before. And?’. I mean I’ve made, like, seven garments from the same pattern in the past, with more in the planning stages. Every successful sewing project I’ve had I’ve either repeated or plan to repeat. My concern is: when does economic sense turn obsessional? I turned to the readers of the Colette Patterns blog for assurance I'm not alone. Although, no-one at present has 'fessed up to seven multiples, I feel I have a kindred spirit in Brooke who has clearly fallen hard for Simplicity 2614!
