|As a costumer, I am constantly making the same historical patterns in different sizesand fabrics, so I trace them all onto Swedish tracing paper or wedding aisle runners to preserve the original. Last night, I traced off a Victorian dress pattern, but knew I was going to have to do something to make the aisle runner I was using wider to accomodate the skirt piece, but got sleepy (IE too lazy to baste 2 widths of runner together) & left the whole thing out. Well, my cats decided to have a WWE match on my tracing board and runner and the runner got ripped. Not wanting to waste, I turned to paper medical tape to fix the torn pieces. It sticks rather well, still remains transparent and doesn't make the light weight runner fabric stiff. I'm going to use it to accomodate the giant skirt pattern!
