Video: Sewing pattern magazines – the ultimate guide (part 2)

As you know I’m a big fan of sewing pattern magazines. This is how I got into garment sewing, and patterns from magazines are still what I primarily use when I’m not drafting my own patterns. This video is part two in my Ultimate pattern magazine guide (Check out part 1). So these two videos give a pretty comprehensive view of the most ones that are currently available, but there are of course more ones and if they find their way to Swedish stores I try to grab an issue.
