My conclusion is that for tracing pattern pieces Patterntrace Swedish Tracing Paper is excellent. It has good transparency, lies flat, is easy to draw on and easy to apply tape to – I’m a convert!
This is amazing stuff which can be used for tracing off patterns and making toiles. One of the advantages is that it is 1m wide so there’s no sticking together of bits of tracing paper that aren’t quite big enough!
Our favourite product for transferring patterns is Swedish tracing paper.
This paper is the BEST tracing paper I have ever used. It is really robust and great to trace your patterns on to as they will last much longer than just using the paper patterns. You can also mark it easily so I make notes on the pattern pieces as I go.
I have been using this paper for a long time having tried various other brands/types and can honestly say that it is the best tracing paper available. You can draft patterns on it directly, again due to the strength of the paper. I have patterns on Patterntrace Swedish Tracing Paper that have been reused countless times and are just as stable as when first made.
