    Great idea! I’ve been buying very expensive (but lovely!) Swedish sewing paper for drafting – next time I’ll order medical paper, some of this fabulous tracing paper and a wheel. I love how perfect the pattern markings are as a result. Thanks for the top tips!

    Much better to have the burda sheets on top than try to find the right line through tracing paper.
