    As fun as leggings may be,I want to find patterns of things I cannot buy===like a simple trench coat. I have made fake fur capes,and jeans from Burda patterns,and i WANT to make things I can;t afford to buy--like a simple trench coat. I can always buy leggings; I cannot go out and buy an affordable trench coat in my budget. --or well tailored trousers. Things like that, that would cost me a fortune if I do not make it. Please put things like that in Threads magazine.
