In the sewing world there are 2 types of pattern users, and endless debates about each system! You either cut out a tissue pattern template to the size you want, or trace off the size you want onto tracing paper before cutting out in order to preserve the original pattern.
I like to dive straight in and cut out my tissue patterns, but many more fashionable patterns like burdastyle magazine, come as traceable patterns, with multiple patterns laid on top of one another. Personally, just looking at the multi pattern sheets in the burda style mag, makes me feel queasy and way too time consuming!
I’ll be doing a video post tomorrow on how to trace off a pattern.
So are you a cutter or tracer?
I’d love to hear your thoughts?
