I needed some paper to trace out a Burda WOF pattern.
I work in a bakery, and it occurred to me that the paper sheets we use to line the baking pans with would work. The paper sheets are large, about 18" x 26" so they are large enough for most of my pattern pieces. I can tape 2 together for longer ones, like dresses or longer skirts.
It's basically vegetable parchment, and very easy to see thru.
I don't know what a bakery would charge for it, but I got it almost free since I work there.
In a pinch you could probably buy some from your local grocery store bakery. Just ask for paper pan liners.
It works great!

If you have to purchase parchment paper, it's pretty expensive [I got a roll to use in my kitchen]...sounds like you got a heckuva deal on yours. I have used waxed paper occasionally to trace's fairly inexpensive.

I once tried to use parchment paper in a pinch. Unfortunately, my paper was silicone-treated and when I tried to cut & tape my alterations, the pieces would not stick together because of the "non-stick" silicone coating. Just mentioning this because it's something you would need to check the package or ask about this when purchasing baking parchment paper.
