Most sewers will know this - but - beginners won't. I save all of my patterns and trace them on a pattern tracing material that I buy at the fabric store. The tracing material that I use is 100% nylon and will not tear.
But the good part is that you can mark your fabric, with a fabric marking pen (after you test it on the fabric) right through the tracing material. No need for tracing paper. Makes cutting patterns go much quicker.
