I didn't want to lay out the original tissue on my fabric, mostly because I knew I was also making pattern alterations (to help the garment fit me better) and I didn't want to destroy my original. So, I traced off a copy on some other paper. (I use the paper on a roll available from Nancy's Notions, but use whatever you can get your hands on.) Begin your tracing by marking a grainline on the paper with a yardstick, and align the pattern's grainline along the mark.
