  51. My favorite pattern is the basic pant pattern. I love that you can make it super simple or add fun details like different pockets and the functioning fly! I bought the girl version about a month ago and I made a pair of jeans for my daughter, the instructions were great! I can't wait to make more and tailor them to fit her better, I have a hard time with store bought pants fitting both my girls just right. I would love to win some more patterns, love all the girls' dresses!

  95. The cool cardigan is defintely my favourite. So many people have done such great variations of this type of pattern and I can't wait to get my hands on it (once I have a place to sew in). Really like all the knit patterns too. Independent designers are doing a much better job of making nice fitting knit tops.
