All I have to say is oh, dear! If you have too many patterns, I worry for myself. I organize my patterns similarly though, in the plastic drawers. Each drawer is then sorted by type (top, dress, pants, skirt, children's, men's, home decor) I also have one for costumes (love those!) sorted by style and type. Since the Vogues won't fit into these drawers, they have there own box. BWOF are just on a shelf for now, but I have copied all the line drawings into a folder for easy flipping. Most of my patterns have also been scanned into the computer and sorted so I can easily flip through them to find what I have.Shiny Green Penny, who said
I just have boxes on a shelving unit - a box of kids patterns, a box of home dec/misc and my women's patterns are by type - tops, bottoms, jackets. I put all my pattern envelopes and pieces into plastic page protectors (the kind you insert into a binder) and therefore eliminating the need to jam them back into the envelope. Nothing fancy, but it works.

I really think I was the real winner here, since I got some great organization tips out of the deal. I definitely need to find some sort of indexing system that will work for me. Thanks to everyone who played along!
I also want to thank Sister, for nominating me for the Sunshine Award! We doctor-sewists got to stick together!
Stay tuned for some actual sewing. The final reveal of the EKG jeans is coming up tomorrow!
