Why I Trace

Burda Plus Pattern Sheet

I think my favorite patterns come from the Burda Plus magazine. They usually send 4 pattern sheets with each magazine. That’s 2 large pieces of paper printed front and back. The sewing lines are printed in different colors for different patterns.

This sheet is from E952, the spring 2007 issue. I was getting ready to trace pattern 406 Dress.

As you can see, if I cut out a pattern, it would destroy the sheet for all other patterns on it. Plus, I use seam allowances, so I would need to add them somehow. So that’s one reason that I started tracing.

The other reason is that when I tissue fit with tissue, I shred the tissue. I just can’t be gentle enough with it. I like to use PatternEase to trace, and that doesn’t rip so easy.
