Lightweight paper for printing patterns
Is there lighter printer paper than standard?

I've got a few free patterns from PatternMaker, among others a basic bodice sloper and basic pants. I am playing around with latter and really like the ease of it and the fit I got to make a basic sloper.

Problem is that fine tuning or changing styles means printing out pages over pages and cuting and taping them, and somehow I find my standard multipurpose printing paper (#20) a bit thick.

I would really like something a bit thinner. I googled around but could find only heavier paper, nothing lighter than standard. Any suggestions? How do you guys print out your patterns, if at all?

If the stiffness is a problem, you could print the pattern and then trace it off on soil separator fabric, or clear plastic. I have done both, then I just "save" that printed pattern rather than cutting into it, just the same as I do Hot Patterns and Kwik Sew, both of which are made from pretty heavy paper.
