2 Ways to Store Paper Patterns
For large skirts and dresses, pattern drafts, pattern nests and anything really large I roll it up and store it upright.
Patterns with small pieces I store in plastic envelopes in arch lever files. I've tried many different ways over the years and this method keeps them clean, but full of folds.
Sometimes I'll roll up a pattern but file the facings, plackets, pockets etc.
I'd love to have everything beautifully labelled, maybe one day. My patterns are getting to the stage where I probably need to create an index of some sort.
How do you store your patterns?
