Those pesky Burda patterns! There are so many lines to follow!

What helped me through my initial go with tracing from Burda WOF was a tip several people contributed to in the forum: use the blue easy release painter's tape (About $4 at Lowe's.) against a picture window. (First: be sure the living room is clean and your SO isn't around to complain.) Tape up the pattern page using the blue tape. Tape whatever paper you've decided to use over that, also using the blue tape. (White butcher paper is only .25/foot at Lakeshore Learning.)

If you've pressed the tape down firmly to hold up the pattern pages, the release might not be as easy, but the tape will come off without destroying any markings on the paper. At least in my limited experience.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this information!

thanks for this tip....i will be trying it......I HATE trying to trace those Burdsa patterns.....I get lost every single time......but my July issue came in yesterday and just from a brief look-through, I know there are at least three garments in there that I want to make up.

Thanks, this sounds like a much easier way of tracing the pattern.
