(NOTE: This free trial version is fully functional, but has a maximum limit of 10 Patterns)
Have you ever tried going on a shopping spree for new fabrics (in physical stores or online), only to feel completely lost by not knowing exactly how you would use that nice-looking piece of fabric, and end up purchasing the wrong thing - or purchasing the right thing, but in the wrong quantity - or worse, still: Leaving empty-handed?
If your answer is "yes", then Sewing Patterns will be your indispensable companion in the future. The inspiration in the form of your pattern library is right at your fingertips, wherever you go, and you can easily make sure that you purchase the right fabric in the right quantity - and with the right accessories. The app also helps you find inspiration on how to best make use of your current stash of fabric.
The app lets you gain the perfect overview in a single place, whether your patterns are purchased, found in magazines, or your own creations entirely. You can categorize your patterns based from standard garment types, or create as many of your own categories as you like. You can have your patterns sorted alphabetically, by most recent usage, or in any particular order you like. Each pattern can be associated with as many categories as you wish.
It is entirely up to you how many details you want to register for your individual patterns, but the more details you supply, the more help you will find in the built-in filtering function. When browsing your patterns, only the filled-in information is shown, so you won't have to deal with lots of empy fields.
Using the camera, you can supply your pattern details with pictures of the model, the instructions, or perhaps of the finalized garments. You can add as many pictures as you like, both for your categories and your patterns.
Use the Filter function if you need to search for a specific pattern in your pattern library, or just need inspiration for your next project, based on a specific piece of fabric.
In all aspects, Sewing Patterns is an indispensable app, for the experienced seamstress and the newcomer alike!
- You can now register an alternative width/yardage for each of your fabrics

Ratings and Reviews
Very nice, easy to use; great way to access your sewing pattern info on the go!
Works great! Currently I am using the free version. I am seriously considering the paid version once I enter more sewing patterns into the database.
Thank you so much for the kind words - I am glad you like the app!
Looks useful, but keeps crashing
This app looks like a good way to database patterns & easily incorporates pictures, but it keeps crashing! I’ll keep my eye on it & will purchase the no ad version when it’s more stable.
Sorry for the late response, and for the inconvenience of the crashes. There was a bug in version 1.3 that has now been fixed, so I do hope you’ll give the app another try.
Good idea but everything is in meters and cm. No way to change to feet and yards.
You can easily change the measuring units to inches/yards on the Settings page.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
