✂-Designer's Tip of The Day- Tracing Patterns
As Designers we are often attracted to vintage, out of print patterns, but wouldn't dare cut into them.... There is a way to make use of those old styles! By using removable tape, a large sheet of butcher paper and a tracing wheel, you can trace out the pattern onto a new piece of paper. Once all the pattern pieces have been traced off, you can "connect the dots" left by the tracing wheel with a pencil and a set of pattern making rulers.
Now you can cut out your fabric using the new pattern pieces without worrying about damaging the original pattern!
