I finally found a source for a tracing paper that I am looking forward to using. It is from a company called Atlas Levy Sewing Machine Co., and it is Guide Marking Alphanumeric paper. It is 60'x400', so I should be able to get lots of use from it!
What kinds of tracing paper have you used, or what do you currently use to trace your patterns?

I use the rolls from Nancy's Notions. Lots of doctors use the same exact stuff on their examining tables.

This is the same paper as Nancy's Notions carries for a fraction of the cost.

The downside is you have to order a case of 12 rolls (except I'm thinking it's not a down side).

:D

That's good to know! I used to buy sheets of that at Office Depot, of all places. It came on a very large pad, and had alpha numeric numbers on it every inch; great for grading patterns. But I can't find it anymore.

What I use are the end rolls of newspaper (non printed) that I pick up for free at the newspaper office They are more than happy to be rid of them and I'm more than happy to take them off their hands.

I ended up buying a case (gulp!) of medical exam table paper from Amazon that was on sale. It's perfect. There was a thread about it not too long ago with the link if you are interested.

I use vellum that is sold by Lutterloh and Sure-Fit Designs. It is easy to use, lightweight, erasable and you can lay it over a pattern for easy tracing.

As I was telling my husband about my purchase last night, before dinner, I realized just how much paper there is on a roll! But I know I will use it all, even if it did cost a little bit to ship it. At least it is on the same coast! But what I really like is that it is so big, and I won't have to tape it all together. I did consider the smaller pieces you are talking about, but I think I am too lazy to do that, although I will use the scraps to make smaller pattern pieces, and to make notes on to stick into the pattern package.
Thanks for your replies. Have fun sewing.

36" x 20' roll of artist/drafting tracing paper costs me less than $10 at the local art supply store. It is cost effective, and the 36" width is perfect for Burda mags and Ottobre. It also comes in 24". It irons well and also pin-fits if taped. It is plain without lines.

I've used the swedish tracing paper, but it was too expensive for what I got...but you can pin-fit it and even sew on it for fitting.

I need to use the same pattern for several people, so I don't cut them. The art tracing paper still fits inside the original envelope size after I iron it, even with the original inside.
