I always use the same set of pattern pieces to make my bras (the same band with different shapes for the cups). I find it not very useful to work with paper pattern, because I always ended by cutting the pattern piece itself (so I must retrace it). I was looking for something to make more durable pattern pieces than paper and I got the idea to use some flexible cutting mat (used normally in the kitchen) and cut it with a workshop cutter (you can see the picture of this). I’m pretty happy with the result. It’s a dream to cut from this pattern pieces : the rotary cutter does not make a single mark on the pattern piece ( I will never again cut the pattern, yeah !). These kind of mat are not very expensive : I get a set of 4 mats to 6 $
