Hi! I’m new here and using my very first pattern. It’s a vintage 70s pattern, complete and uncut, and I’d like to actually use it (I’m not a collector, just a novice sewer). It’s one-size only (hat/headwrap) – should I go ahead and cut it, and save the cut pieces? Or trace and copy what I need onto another paper? I’ve never done this before, so I don’t know if it’s difficult to save cut pattern pieces or not. And I don’t know, since it’s a vintage pattern, if I should cut it just for nostalgia’s sake! Any thoughts or tips are welcome… thanks!
