I am not sure what type of patterns you are looking for....ie quilting, clothing, etc. However, sewing shows and expos are great places to look for unique patterns because they usually also have the garment or quilt already constructed and on display so you can view the finished product. My favorite is the Original Sewing & Quilt Expo which moves from city during the year. Check out their schedule at sewingexpo.com
If you are looking for fashion sewing, I recommend e-patterncentral.com or sewingpatterns.com. These websites offer original and noted pattern companies. On the sewingpatterns.com, there are sales for different patterns at certain times. Sign up to have these sales sent to you and get a Butterick sale for $2.99 per pattern, where non-sale price would be $6.99, plus. Vogue, McCall's and others offer sales that you cannot refuse.
If you are sewing for the children and baby, SewBaby.com has a great selection.
Good luck on your adventure!
You might also want to check out Patternreview.com. Members review patterns from everywhere so you can get an idea of how it will look when it's done. Websites like Pink Chalk Fabrics offer patterns from all types of smaller designers that are likely to be more unique.
I bought a pants pattern, Kayla Kennington's Perennial Pants Collection, from Sewing Patterns that I will continue to make because the pattern is so simple. With a choice of fabrics and small details, I can create different looks with this one pattern. Plus, I like that the pants are easy to fit to my shape.
This site seems to carry a bunch of unique, small designers not found in the larger fabric stores.
Check on etsy. They have some really cute stuff. Sometimes you can find what you want and then do an internet search too. Otherwise I like JoAnne Fabrics. They usually have Simplicity 5 for $5. I'll be making hubs with the different projects I find and I usually look for unique things.

I know patterns and fabrics vary, but I wanted to make a cute 50's style dress. I feel like I was made to be born in that era. haha. Anyways, what's your experience with designing your own clothes, is it easy to work a sewing machine? If I were to began trying, what's a cheap way to go about doing...
