Last Friday, I ordered a pattern from a German company, RS-Design24, and it arrived today! The enclosed letter stated that the pattern was on adhesive paper. It looks like freezer paper and several scraps I've tested seem to adhere and lift off well. The instructions say that this can be done several times. This doesn't seem to have added to the price of the pattern and shipping. I paid 4 Euros for shipping and 11 for the pattern..a total of $20.24 USD, in line with other independent companies. The pattern was sent registered mail and I received it a week after ordering. There are 2.5 pages of instructions for a fairly simple pattern, all in German. This will be a test for my junior high/college German!

Very interesting. So you can adhere it to paper for tracing, then?

You adhere it to the fabric, instead of pinning. Most of these are fairly oversized/loose designs, without much fitting required. They are billed as Lagenlook style, even on her stationery. So, unless, you need extensive alterations, you just use the pattern. The paper is about the weight of StyleArc's, only with the shiny side with the adhesive.

As I was tracing off to freezer paper the other day, I was wishing somebody would do this. I figured it would be too costly for them to do it, but I was wishing!

Now if they all will follow suit and do the same, I would be really happy.

i wonder if a spray adhesive would work.....some of them have poor 'sticking' capabilities.

Aren't there removable "basting" sprays?

Yup, there are. I have a can of that stuff (Sullivan's ?) somewhere, and have used it to stick little pattern pieces into place. The stickum is very light and not obtrusive at all.

Very interesting, jannw! Which pattern did you buy? I have been eyeing these, but was a bit put off by the lack of photos. Drawings make it more difficult to assess the pattern. Please post a pic of your finished garment!
