I kinda tore through my pattern collection the other day in search of a particular one. Now my patterns are all higglety pigglety, and it's time to come up with a new method of organization! In the past, I've done by decade and most recently, by clothing type - blouses, trousers, outfits, suits, etc... The problem I'm finding with this method is a lot of patterns fit into more than one category, but I don't really want to go back to just by decade. Ideally, I'd like to scan all my patterns and be able to have them cross referenced and searchable. Then I could just file them by pattern company and number, but I don't see me having the time to take pictures of close to 300 patterns anytime soon. I'd like to hear how you all have your patterns organized. Bring on the excellent ideas please!
