When I work on fabric that has a pattern that must be matched I decide upon the placement of the pattern on the first piece, and then, after cutting out the first piece that is primary to the outfit, I lay the other pattern pieces over the cut one and draw the plaid or stripe onto the pattern piece where the seam will need matching. Then I can safely lay the pattern peice where it should go without going back to the original piece cut 8 times (I sometimes get carried away with the measure twice cut once!) So I could cut out the jacket fronts, lay the back pattern over the cut fabric and draw the plaid onto the seam line, then continue doing this with sleeves, pockets, etc.

Also a good way to match prints and get a full match at seams. Thanks for refreshing my mind. I had forgotten this one.
