Prepare your tracing paper. The Saral Transfer or Tracing Paper comes in a handy roll which is 12 inches wide by 12 feet long. However you might find the pieces you want to trace are wider than 12 inches, especially for a full skirt, so let’s unroll the paper, find the middle and cut it into two lengths. Place these side by side with a small overlap, with the transfer side DOWN and then tape them together on the back side. If you tape on the transfer side, then it won’t transfer!

Now you have a big sheet about 23 inches wide by 6ft. You can roll it back up again afterwards – this stuff will last you for years!

I use the Red Transfer Paper for tracing patterns to the white paper, and I love the White Transfer Paper for tracing directly onto dark fabrics or for transferring pattern markings or stitching lines onto fabrics. If you have a light fabric you can use the red paper to mark – both will wash out – but if in doubt or you have an expensive fabric, please test them on a scrap first.

    This is way too much work. Burda should provide patterns that are available in your size and with seam allowances. Very frustrating this is the only company that does this and I won’t buy their patterns until becomes standard.
