More magazine patterns!

Patterns are expensive in Germany, especially the "Big 4"patterns...if you can get them. There are no $3.99 or 75% off Vogue patterns sales. There are no $1.99 or 5/$5.00 Simplicity patterns. But there is a pattern magazine sold here that contains traceable patterns of a (limited) selection of sizes of some Simplicity and New Look patterns. The magazine is called Meine N√§hmode, and as far as I know it's only published here in Germany. It comes out four times a year and costs €5.50 for about 13-15 equivalent envelope patterns. Since the envelope patterns often contain multiple pieces (skirts and tops, for example), you actually get quite a few patterns. The patterns aren't the latest ones, and some are even out of print, but I still think it's a pretty good deal.

I picked up the latest issue, which just came out, and I went through it and determined the pattern numbers for each pattern in the magazine. In case anyone else is interested, here is the list for the 3/2013 issue (fall 2013):
