I am dabbling in pattern making since I do a serious amount of alternations to store bought patterns and I don't even read the instructions anyway. So why not just draft/drape it myself.

I'm looking for that thin tape stuff that designers use for marking design lines on a form. I've used the pin stripe tape from the auto part store but it's expensive. I've also cut stripes of blue painters tape. I'm looking for the real deal. Any ideas what it's called and where I can buy it?

It's draping tape and you can get it from Amazon, fabrics.net and all brands as a quick look. Not to mention it comes on ebay a lot.

I've seen it somewhere else recently, and want to say Wawak.

The pgmdressform.com website sells draping tape for the best price. As a matter of fact, I ordered two rolls from them just a few days ago.
