Featured in the PR book!
I traced off and cut out my 1st Burda WOF pattern. After carefully cutting out the pattern pieces from the pattern paper and laying them on the fabric. I discovered that it would have been a whole lot easier to mark the seam allowances on the paper rather than the fabric. (The magazine suggests adding the seam allowance & marking the cutting line directly on the fabric.)

I have been using Burda Mag. patterns for years and it is really better to cut out pattern without the sas because you can easily fit the paper pattern by taping it together and try it on. Then you can cut it apart. No pins to get scraped on ! Also it is better to fit at sewing line not cutting line. Works really well easier to see neck and shoulder lines.

I have an Olfa rotary cutter that has a hole in the handle. The hole is for an attachment that lets you put another piece of plastic at a certain distance from the blade. So then you position this piece at the seamline and cut, and your cutting line is a specific distance from the seamline. It works great, except when you don't pay attention and put the blade on the seamline instead of putting the plastic piece on the seamline. So you have to pay attention.
