|Sometimes you have a pattern that has so many pieces it's hard to figure out what goes where ahead of time. I just made Butterick 5881, with 19 pieces and 3 views, and color blocked pieces were involved. Even reading through the instructions is often still confusing in cases like this!
I had a light bulb moment, and took a photo of all of the pattern pieces as laid out on the instruction sheet
Then I enlarged and printed out the photo, and cut out all of the individual pieces (sort of like cutting out paper doll clothes). I labeled which piece went with which view, and also marked my alterations on each piece, so that when I traced and cut out the actual pattern pieces, I wouldn't forget to match my alterations.
I was then able to lay my pieces out next to (and in this case, on top of) each other, and get a clear idea of which pieces were needed for each view, and what fabric to cut with each piece.
A few minutes of planning ahead of time saved me a lot of time and potential mistakes in the long run!
