When working with large or circular prints it can be important to have your bust point at a spefic place on the fabric. Although I mark bust points with a marker on the pattern piece, I sometimes have trouble seeing the fabric underneath the pattern piece. Previously I'd used pins to mark the fabric. However, I just realized that a coin, such as a quarter, works much better. It's heavy enough to not move and the right size. You can easily see it though tissue paper.

I love this tip! It brings me back to one of my first sewing projects in Jr High school. We were making aprons with a bib top, and it wasn't until I was finished that we realized the little words across the "bustline" (and I use that term lightly), read 'the untouchable'!

Thanks for the tip! I live in dread that someday I'll put some circular print right over the bust point.
