I spent an afternoon participating in self-torture.
I spent the afternoon highlighting the pattern pieces in yellow. I haven't even started to trace it out. Now that I have finished highlighting the pattern pieces I think I've changed my mind about the project.
But now I know what everyone has been talking about when it comes to tracing out a Burda pattern. Yikes!
Finding the pattern pieces wasn't so hard, the sheets are labelled somewhat like a map. The margins indicate a general location to find you pattern piece.
At Pattern Review, Eileen gave a helpful hint--wax paper. I would never have thought about that.
fehr Trade recommends tracing the patterns using a serrated blade on top of a carpet.
I also read someone's recommendation of using see-through plastic. Love that idea! But it could get quite expensive, no?
