How-To Tracing Paper Tips

Be careful of the tracing or dressmakers' paper you use. Dressmakers' paper has a coated side and leaves a mark on your fabric when you wheel over the lines. These lines are hard to remove, so choose the color of the paper wisely. Yellow tends to be the strongest color and may bleed through your fabric. Always use white on white (anything else will bleed).

Once you've selected the right paper cut your fabric with right sides together. Then layer your stack so the paper is on the bottom with the colored side up, your fabric is on top of the paper, and the pattern is on the top of the stack.

Trace around your pattern making all necessary marks. Then use the marks on your bottom layer of fabric to mark your second layer. Cut your pieces and you're ready to go!
