Addicted to Pattern's ?

As I was sewing this pattern for the oh, 6th time. I thought to myself why do I even buy patterns, when I make the same things over and over? When ever the fabric store has a sale on patterns,  I am the 1st one in the store to purchase patterns that  I know I probably wont use. This Pattern McCall's 5671  
 and Vogue1119 are my go 2 patterns. These take less than an hour to make. The McCall's pattern is great for the summer. Just slip it on and go. Once you do the FBA alterations you can just cut and within an hour your finished. With my E bust size I always have to keep a safety pin handy, not with this pattern.

The Vogue pattern looks great under suits, jeans, everything. I think I am up to 30 of theses one yard tops. I never made the dress. I can't even find the bottom pieces. I keep this pattern on my bulletin board in the sewing room, for easy access.

Pretty Maxi and great top. I am a pattern repeater and constantly ask myself why do I continue to by more. I guess the answer would be... get them and just maybe one of the new ones will be next in line to become a pattern repeater...lol.
