|If you may want to use several sizes in a multi size pattern, of course you might take the time to trace it the first time you use it. I didn't have the time to do this and was looking for a different, quick solution. On many of the cutting lines, its possible to just fold away the bigger sizes, but on some lines, especially places like waist and yoke curves, you have to at least snip in to the curve to get it to fold away, and this makes the pattern a bit fragile when you come to spread it out for a larger size. A quick fix occurred to me when I was doing this recently and I'm passing it on in case its useful. In those curves where you know you will have to make crossing cuts to get the pattern to fold to one of the smaller sizes, if you first run some ordinary scotch tape over the area near the edge, then do your cutting out, you have a stronger pattern edge, which will survive being chopped around better. Its not an elegant solution, but its quick and works.
