If you haven’t seen it already, check out the post Sigrid wrote last week about tracing PDF patterns. No taping or trimming needed! While I don’t mind assembling PDF patterns, I absolutely hate storing them, as I use the bare minimum of tape during assembly and the edges of the pieces often get caught in the non-taped areas. Sigrid’s method also gives you the option of allowing more space around pattern pieces than the PDF might allow for – very useful for when you’re working with a single size pattern, or if you want to use more generous seam allowances. Thanks for posting, Sigrid!
