I have found it difficult to trace some of the Jalie patterns. I use plastic drop cloth I buy from Walmart. It is perfect to see through and see those tiny lines. I use a fine marker. But I did find it difficult even when I could see through with those multiple lines that all the sizes come as one. I finally decided to try my sewing curve, or any ruler that was the shape of the line I was tracing. Why didn't I think of this earlier. It worked out perfect. And when I am done with the fine marker I remove my pattern from under the plastic and redraw the lines with a thicker marker. Problem solved. I hope tip might help someone else.

Great tip! This would be very helpful when working with prints and plaids, easier to see the fabric underneath. Thank you!
