|Professionally, I am a Registered Nurse. As such, I have a tendency to have pockets full of supplies when I get home from a shift at the hospital. I usually try to empty my pockets before I leave, but this is not always the case. I recently have been commissioned to put together a wedding dress and was given a pattern to use as the base. There were multiple tears and some holes in the tissue pattern paper. *light goes on!* I went to the bowl of unused supplies from work and pulled out a roll of Paper Tape that is commonly used to hold a surgical dressing in place. The tape is not repositional, but held up to the ironing of the tissue beautifully (Mom always taught me to iron my pattern pieces before cutting out the fabric.). I had tried painters' tape before and it either would melt or curl when ironed. The only good thing about the painters' tape was that, even on tissue paper, I was able to reposition the tape if needed.
