    Probably a Simplicity pajama pants pattern. Making them is probably some sort of rite of passage for beginners ;)

  2. CarlaJo says:

    Pajama pants that said they were easy to sew…. Simplicity maybe?

  3. Bob Staresinic says:

    My first commercial pattern was for a christening gown 19 years ago, but I don’t recall whose pattern it was.

  4. Leticia says:

    My first pattern was probably a simplicity patter. I was in my early twenties and started making dresses for my toddler daughter. The first was a simple A-line with a loop and button closure. I remember the dress because I didn’t know to prewar my fabric and it didn’t look so good after that first wash.

  5. Nan says:

    It was 40 years ago in home economics – I learned to sew a pair of pants – likely a McCalls or Simplicity. My Mom told me later that she thought I would never learn to sew as I could not get a pin to go through the material/pattern. I did learn, and she and I often sewed together.

  6. Cherie says:

    It was a Butterick. It was a dress for my little girl.

  7. Robin R says:

    A Simplicity jumper pattern in a 10th grade home economics class. I learned sew much from my excellent teacher who checked off each step of the instructions as we completed them to insure accuracy. Love that lady!

  8. Connie F says:

    My first pattern was a Simplicity. It was a smock top.

  9. Ruth L says:

    I started sewing in about 1970 and probably would have started with a Simplicity or McCalls skirt pattern. I love seeing the advent of the indie patterns and Megan is a very talented designer. Thanks!

  10. Susan MacGregor says:

    It was a very long time ago, was in high school home ec class and I made a stuffed elephant pillow and then a skirt (gathered waist and zipper closure – that may have been a McCalls pattern)

  11. Clare Williamson says:

    My first pattern was by Style. It was 60s shift dress in beige and white floral. My second version was bright orange with green and white lace applied diagonally.

  12. Rush Wilson says:

    I bought my first commercial pattern in 1964. It was most likely from McCall.

  13. Kathy Scruggs says:

    My first commercial pattern was a Simplicity maternity dress pattern. That was over 40 years ago and still sewing along, although most of my sewing consists of home decor now.

  14. Carolyn McNichols says:

    Most likely Simplicity. Mom taught me to sew when I was in 5th grade. Made most of my clothes by junior high.

  15. Mary Miller says:

    My first pattern was Butterick 3542. I made an emerald green dress.

  16. Sherri Pylant says:

    My first commercial pattern was 48 years ago. I don’t remember the pattern number but it was a Simplicity jumper pattern. I was 7 at the time.

  17. Bianca S says:

    The first pattern I sewed was a SImplicity. I chose it because it had “simple” in the title. :)

  18. Brenny says:

    Wow! So long ago that I don’t remember the pattern #, but it had to be Simplicity. 9th grade home economics class. And I am still sewing!

  19. Elizabeth says:

    My first commercial pattern was probably from Simplicity. In the 70′s I made overall shorts. I made a mistake on the cuff, but I still loved them!

  20. rhonna jerauld says:

    i made a commercial halter top pattern that i never fully finished when i was in high school. damn you hand hemming! thanks for the giveaway!

  21. Shiloh says:

    My first commercial pattern was Simplicity 8345

  22. Fooniks says:

    My first commercial pattern was from the Burda magazine. And my first indy was the Moneta which I love to death

  23. Meg says:

    Must have been a Mcalls- I was 9 or 10 and made a cute yellow shift dress with purple print patch pockets for 4 H. I still look for that pattern!! Loved it.
