|I get so irritated with little, easily-misplaced pattern pieces for ribbing, drawstrings, belt loops, etc. I started writing the sizes needed for these bits on the instruction sheet years ago. The problem is that the instruction sheet is generally in a different room and I have to go find it in order to finish cutting. I now write the sizes needed on the actual pattern tissue. For instance, I am currently working with Burda 8356 (tee with ruched shoulders), which requires four drawstrings and a neckline ribbing (I changed the neckline). On my pattern piece I noted : 4xdrawstrings 1.25" by 24" and 1xribbing 2.25" by 24.75". After I'm finished cutting out the main pattern pieces I can easily cut the remaining pieces with my rotary cutter and quilting ruler. It's easy and much more accurate than using pattern pieces.
