I am an off and on sewer and sometimes several years go by so I have to reacquaint myself with things. I am finding that the instructions in patterns are harder to follow than I remember. I am working through a Connie Crawford (Butterick) pattern and I am having a heck of a time figuring things out. I have made a new rule to live by and that is to only buy patterns with 3 or less pattern sizes. Patterns for 6 sizes have too many lines and circles and notations. I would like to know which pattern company has the best pattern instructions.
