I always trace my patterns and many times have found myself veering onto the wrong size on multi-sized patterns. I found that if I first place dots on the correct line at strategic points such as corners, crotch points (in pants), hemlines, etc. I am able to trace the proper lines using a styling curve to connect the dots. This may be what many of you already have done, but it just occurred to me.

I just started doing this and sometimes using a short line drawn by hand, then connected with a straight edge, because I'm not so good at long, straight lines. I like the connect-the-dots idea. Thanks.
