Pitanja i odgovori, deo II / Q&A, part 2


Pre neki dan sam dobila par sličnih pitanja od svojih čitalaca, pa pomislih kako bi odgovori bili svima zanimljivi. 

Prvo pitanje je bilo vezano za španski časopis Patrones - na žalost, ovaj magazin se ne može kupiti u Srbiji. Ja imam par brojeva časopisa, koje sam nakupovala kada sam bila u Španiji, i koje su mi donosili moji profesori španskog (učim španski poslednje tri godine), kada su išli kući na odmor. Ipak, možete se pretplatiti na magazin preko ovog sajta
Meni je Patrones jako zanimljiv, nudi prilično mladalačke modele, ali sam imala problema sa veličinom krojeva - neki modeli su mi bili taman po merama, dok je većina bila prevelika. Veličine nisu iste kao u Burdi, drugačije su i proporcije, pa mi je trebalo malo vremena dok sam se privikla na to. 

Drugo pitanje je bilo vezano za krojeve koji se mogu downloadovati s interneta. Evo nekoliko sajtova za koje ja znam - ako znate za još koji, bilo bi sjajno da dopišete u komentarima.
  1. Na BurdaStyle sajtu ima dosta krojeva koji se mogu downloadovati. Krojevi su u PDF formatu i  potrebno je odštampati ih i spoiti odštampane listove prateći oznake da bi se dobio gotov kroj. Većina krojeva je izdata od samog sajta, u poslednje vreme se tamo mogu naći i krojevi iz Burda časopisa, ali ima i dosta krojeva koje postavljaju članovi sajta, poput mene. Krojevi koje postavljaju članovi sajta su uglavnom besplatni. Prethodno je potrebno otvoriti nalog na sajtu, koji se ne naplaćuje.
  2. Takodje, na Modern Sewing sajtu ima mnogo krojeva koji se mogu downloadovati, i svi su besplatni. Krojevi su dati za svaki veličinu zasebno.
  3. Ruski sajt Lekala nudi veliki broj krojeva, ali se većina naplaćuje. Ja sam imala sreće, pa sam otkrila sajt u vreme kada su nudili svoje krojeve besplatno, u promotivne svrhe. Vredi pratiti zbivanja na sajtu, možda bude još nekih promocija.
  4. Brazilski časopis Manequim nudi besplatno neke od svojih krojeva u PDF formatu. Izbor krojeva im se menja s vremena na vreme, pa vam savetujem da downloadujete sve krojeve kada ih nađete, jer vam se možda neće ukazati nova prilika. Cela zbirka krojeva, koji se naplaćuju, nalazi se ovde.
    Sajt je na portugalskom, ali verujem da se možete snaći.
  5. Colette Patterns sajt i blog. Sari, autorka bloga, prodaje svoje retro inspirisane krojeve, ali povremeno izbaci i poneki besplatan kroj. Meni su svi njeni krojevi prelepi! 
  6. Ovaj sajt nudi dosta krojeva za decu. Ne znam da li su svi besplatni, ali pouzdano znam da ima i takvih krojeva.
  7. Ovaj sajt je na španskom, takođe nudi krojeve.
  8. Francuski sajt sa krojevima.
  9. I, za avanturiste, japanski krojevi, sa instrukcijama na japanskom :). Instrukcije su ilustrovane, tako da mislim da je moguće pratiti ih.

Few days ago I got a several similar questions from my readers, so I thought the answers might be interesting to everyone.

The first question was related to the Spanish Patrones magazine - unfortunately, this magazine can not be bought in Serbia. A few issues of the magazine that I have were bought in Spain while I was staying there, or were brought back to me by my Spanish teachers (I've been learning Spanish for 3 years now) when they went back home for holidays. However, you can subscribe for the magazine via this website.
I find Patrones very interesting, it offers very interesting and youthful models, but I had problems with defining the right size - some patterns fitted well, while the others were too big. The sizes are not the same as the ones in Burda Style magazines, and the proportions differ, so I needed some time to get used to it.

The second question was related to the downloadable patterns. Here are some of the websites that I know of - if you know of any other site, it would be great if you could write them down in the comments.
  1. Burda Style website offers a lot of patterns in PDF format. You need to print the file and join the papers together to get a pattern. Most of the patterns were published by the website itself, and lately there can be found patterns published by the Burda Style magazine. Also, you can find a lot of patterns made by the website's users (that are usually free of charge). You need to register to the website, which is also free of charge.
  2. Also, Modern Sewing website offers a lot of downloadable patterns, and they're all free of charge.
  3. Russian website Lekala offers numerous patterns, most of them being charged for. I was lucky to find the website during its promotion when all the patterns were free. Follow the site on a regular basis and you might catch another promotion.
  4. Brazilian magazine Manequim offers some of its patterns in PDF file format. The patterns they offer for download free of charge changes periodically, so I advise you to download the pattern when you find it, or you might loose your chance for it. The whole collection of their patterns can be found here.
    The website is in Portuguese, but I think you'll manage it.
  5. Colette Patterns website and blog. Sari, the author sells her vintage inspired patterns, but she offers some free patterns from time to time. I love all of her patterns! 
  6. This website offers a lot of patterns for children. I don't know whether all of them are free of charge.
  7. This website is in Spanish, it also offers patterns.
  8. French website with patterns.
  9. And, for adventurous, japanese patterns, with instructions in Japanese :). The instructions are illustrated, so I think you can follow them.
