If everyone posts which (preferably recent and still available) patterns they have here and when a few people have the same pattern then it might be easier to start sewalongs.

Here are some of the patterns I have:

Simplicity
4690
5097
5561
4992
5499
5007
7113 (not for me but is a really easy pattern)
5759
5799
5724 (I may make the skirt part of this in the summer but have finished the top (without the bertha decoration) and I don't plan on making it again soon)

New Look
6379
6357
6843
6443
6415

Butterick
3370 - I don't think this is on the butterick site anymore

Sorry about the eratic order.

None I can't follow patterns.
But I do pretty darn good freestyling thou.

I have far toooo many patterns to name them all, besides, most of them are old from the 70's and before, which probably none of you have/would ware

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

dirt_made_my_lunch - have you got any recent ones, or ones that you can get a similar style pattern now? Or perhaps an idea of the styles? Or ones you would be interested in getting when they are next on offer?

This is probably not the best place for me to put this, but I'm afraid of store-bought patterns.  I can follow them, but rarely do things turn out as nicely when I do.  I like them for the cutting of fabric,  ONLY.  After that, I usually put things together on my own.  Is that unusual?  Particularly for someone with limited experience sewing?

I took home economics in school over 15 years ago, have done a couple of sewing projects between then and now, but just recently I have begun sewing a few things, and getting the feel for my machine.  I had horrible experiences with my old machine, and my grandmother took it back to the shop, and bought me a new one, that I LOVE!

I'm very interested in these sew-a-longs!  I hope that I can participate.

Here are the patterns I have currently:

Simplicity:

7161 - Soft Bags - Sewing Patterns for Dummies 
(I could only figure this pattern out after reading Jordy's tutorial... I'm so embarrassed.  I couldn't even do a pattern for dummies on my own.) 
8490 - Pajamas for Children
9172 - Little Girl's Dress
9681 - Simplicity Home - Tab Top Curtains
4549 - Gypsy skirt
5010 - Misses' dress in 2 lengths, and bag
9765 - 2 hour skirt
5845 - Misses' Pants, Jacket and knit top (more like pajamas)

** Vintage, from my mom **
5997 - Lined bias halter tops  (super cute pattern)
6710 - Dress  (it says contemporary fashion, but this is from before the 1970's... it's cute too, but dated)
6672 - Dress (Approximately the same as above...)
7569 - Jiffy Pullover top (I called the blouse my mom made, her hippy shirt... YEARS ago... I want to make myself one, just because it looks like it would be comfy to wear with pajama bottoms)
5138 - Dress (It's got pretty frilly sleeves that I'd like to try out... when I feel brave)

Butterick:

3134 - Fast and Easy Skirt (calls for a zipper... I've been putting off trying this one.)


McCall's:

3772 - Fashion Accessories (4 purse designs)
2848 - Pajamas (For men and women, 2 styles)
3084 - Little girl's Dress
7343 - 8 Apron Patterns

** Vintage from my Mom **
8236 - Dress (I'm not so sure I really want to try this one.)
9037 - Dress (It's got Joan Collins on the package... need I say more?) 


Lazy Girl Designs:

211 - Wonder Wallet - Fat Quarter Cutie  (I LOVE this pattern!)


I also have a stack of free patterns, that I picked up over the last few months from fabric stores.  I'd be happy to scan them in, if anyone is interested in trying them out...

1.  Watercolor Window:  This lovely quilt combines two modified Attic window blocks and two Diamond-in-a-Square blocks.

2.  Garden Toll Roll-up with pockets:  Super easy, and FAST!

3.  Ragged homespun quilt:  Also simple and FAST!

4.  Holiday Gatherings Gift Bags:  Designed for VIP Leslie Beck.  Includes pattern for 2 gifts bags in different sizes.  Can be modified (by fabric choice) for any holiday or occasion, not just Christmas.

That's all for now.  I can add more, as I acquire more.

As a side note, I also have 5 other vintage patterns from my mom that I'm not interested in.  Does anyone know what I can do with them?  I'd HATE to throw them away.

With the gypsy skirt pattern, we have a thread going for those but most of us are just winging it. You are welcome to join with your pattern. Perhaps you could use the instructions to explain to people better than I can.

The following are the only modern patterns I have that I purchased within the last twelve months:

Simplicity
4543
4587
4750
4885
5057
5060
5479
7092
7196
9825

I have a huge collection of vintage patterns (50's through present, especially 70's).  I've actually used only a few of them, but I like to go through them now and then - it makes me all giddy.  I have kept all of the patterns that I've ever bought and I keep buying more.  It's like an illness, a happy illness.
