Alpha-numeric or “dot” paper, awl, notcher, clear tape, stapler. Pattern making on dot paper versus unmarked paper is infinitely easier: the markings help keep you grainlines true and your angles right. An awl is used to mark darts, pocket placement, and the like on patterns and fabric. A notcher marks various important points on patterns (dart intake, center front and back, etc). Clear tape often comes in handy when modifying patterns. Be sure to use matte transparent tape rather than the shiny kind: pencil markings don’t show up on the shiny kind.
