What a shock! I went with my daughter to buy a sewing pattern for her apparel class. A pattern costs $16.00 !!! It was on sale though for $10.00. Does anyone else remember when sewing your own clothes was an economical alternative to buying them in the store? If we are lucky the pattern will cost 10, the fabric will cost about 15, then add on buttons, interfacing and thread. This blouse will cost $30.00 to make. Anyone know of an less expensive way to buy patterns or websites to suggest?
