I sew a lot of BURDA patterns from the magazines, and I NEVER cut my multisize patterns out.
To trace the patterns, I use the same paper, the doctors offices use on the examination tables.
A roll of it (about 100m/350ft) is dirtcheap and lasts forever.

I have used doctor examination paper before to trace multisize patterns when I sewed childrens clothing. I will never forget going and asking for some examination paper, and the people I asked looked at me very strangely. It was funny and they felt much better when I told them it was for pattern tracing.

I have found tracing paper and opaque paper for pattern drafting at a large art supply store. It comes in different sized rolls and I'm pretty sure it's quite a bit less expensive than buying it as a "sewing" notion. (But not as cheap as Grandma Mary's tip!)

This is a great idea I also trace patterns off but I use paper that I get free from the newspaper offoce who gives away the rolld end.

You can also buy this paper at Nancy's Notions. They call it tracing paper, but it's the same thing.

Great Idea กกก ...Also, you can put a roll anywhere...normally, trace paper is big and I don't like to fold it before using...Thank you.
