Patrones 22

8 January 2013, 18:23

Remember back before Christmas, when the in-laws travelled to Spain and brought me back Patrones 320? Well, at the time I was too flu-ridden to scan the second issue they bought at the same time, so I’m sharing it with you now.

This second magazine is labelled “Casual” and “Extra” but is more the size of a typical Patrones “Extra” issue. These lower numbered Patrones issues started a few years ago and are reprints of previously-published patterns. In this case, I haven’t seen any of these before so it’s fine by me!

It’s a terrible magazine photo (why cover up the pattern dress with a massive cardigan?) but I absolutely love the tech drawing for this curved seam dress. Funny, but it really reminds me of a Patrones designer skirt I made in 2008 and then never really documented on the site (which I tend to not do anymore, you see everything!)

There are tons of amaaaazing coats in this issue (remember that I swear by Patrones’ coat patterns!!), and I especially like this one with a zipper opening, and three separate zippered welt pockets, too:

The short, naval pea coat is such an iconic piece of clothing, but strangely, not one you see patterns for very often. For me, this would make a fantastic transitional coat I could wear 9 months of the year…

From a “military” themed feature (that looks a bit dated by now), I rather liked the jodhpurs/cargo trousers and the jeanskirt with side pleats…

Ooh, little red riding hood!

And in case you needed a clue how I manage to scan all these pattern magazines, well, I have a little secret helper!

I’m catching up on my pattern magazine posts this week, so you’ll get to see my picks from the January Burda and December Manequim magazines, too!

  1. Nice issue! I like Patrones but didn’t try to sew from it yet%)

  2. I wish Patrones (and other internatioanl pattern magazines) were more easily accessible to buy in the U.S. (I do get them online for a bit of a premium) I really enjoy your posts with the reviews of them. Thanks!

  3. That is indeed a terrible magazine cover. Exactly at odds with the Dec issue of Manequim – I’m so in love with that white dress!

  4. I would love to see that pea coat made up, all the more so by you!
