This is almost exactly what I was looking for. There's a few things I would do differently, like have an option for One Size, and S/M/L/XL. Also, the patterns are focused on clothing only, so the sizes only have body measurements. I have hat patterns with head measurements, and nowhere to put them in the Size category. The search function for the tags is very precise. I have 3 "vintage look" patterns and 4 "vintage" patterns. Searching for "vintage" should bring up 7 patterns, but if I accidentally put in a space after vintage it will only bring up 3. It found what I asked for, exactly, with no wiggle room. It would be nice to have options for yardages for more than one "view," since most patterns include more than one item, when you input the yardage, yardage for *what?* The pants, the blouse, the vest? If it's a wardrobe pattern, in particular, that could get confusing in a hurry. Overall, though, I think the 25 free patterns, getting them put in to see how it works was more than enough to convince me to upgrade to the paid version. It will pay for itself by avoiding rebuying patterns.
This app has saved my sanity and my wallet several times over. It's perfect for organizing what I've got and keeping me from buying what I already have. I like that I can add categories (although I wish I could take them away too). Great work overall. I'm so glad I bought it!
Added 5 patterns already - this is going to be a great help when out and about and you happen to see some material you like - specially if in a foreign country. Backs up on Google drive so available on phone and tablet and pictures don't have to be stored on phone as well which is great
I mostly love this app, but I have a request. Could you include a place to list yardage for lining and interfacing as well as a spot for notions? Right now, I am cramming this all into the note and it is a bit jumbled. Thank you!
Great app! I have a ridiculous amount of fabric that isn't quite right for the many patterns I own. Discovering this while cataloging my patterns 😒 This app will prevent impulse buys that aren't the right type of fabric or yardage to be worthwhile! Worth the money to add all of my patterns!
Just what I needed! Now I can easily browse my pattern collection wherever I am. A picture of the back of the envelope suffices for fabric requirements for now. I can enter it later if I want it searchable. In a few hours I entered about 50 patterns with the basic info I care about, mainly garment type and a picture of the front and back of the pattern envelope. I am happy to pay $5 for the developer's time and future support. Many hours went into developing this app and it sounds like it will only get better.
