There are many patterns that have many pieces that either look alike or out of the ordinary. For these patterns, I've found it's helpful to keep the tissue with the cut out pieces as I'm going to construct the garment. This ensures that the pieces are oriented the right way and helps prevent you from being confused and sewing the wrong pieces together.
