Swedish Tracing Paper is drapably soft yet strong enough to sew on. Be sure to base the pattern together first and try it on to check the fit. Great for making a durable long lasting pattern. 29"W x 10 yds.

A pencil or fine point pen works great, markers tend to bleed through too easily so I use different colored gel pens to designate sizes, make margin notes, and specific markings on all my master patterns. Somewhere between fabric and paper that drapes nicely it's so much less of a pain than going through two or more muslin mock ups before everything fits perfectly. If you're like me you probably want to jump on the nice fabric for the main project and hate having to work on muslin. Try using it for embroidery paper on leather or denim if that isn't enough. You can even use it to pin strips onto clothes and baste the fit quickly when tailoring an existing garment. I wish I knew about this stuff 15 years ago! Anyone who has a sewing machine and knows their way around it should try this stuff. I spend less time fiddling with fit or pattern alterations and more time actually sewing. I just wish it came in larger wider rolls or printed like graph paper.
Also, what if I cut out the wrong size; which has already happened to me. Twice. I researched a little more, there are many different ways to save your patterns, and tracing the pattern was something that came up more often than other methods. This method has several pluses, including saving the original pattern, with all sizes and iterations. After looking even deeper, I learned about Swedish tracing paper.
Swedish tracing paper is a cross between tracing paper and fabric, it feels a little like what I imagine really thin felt would feel like. The paper can be sewn, so it is useful for fitting bodices or adjusting darts. It is see through enough for tracing when laid over a pattern. I ordered my first roll of Swedish tracing paper 2 years ago and back then I had high expectations, and high hopes for this paper, but no clue of how it worked, or how long 10 yards would last!
All my hopes and dreams have come true and it is my goto method of pattern preservation. Though it takes a little time to trace each pattern piece, this exercise alone has actually helped me improve my sewing. Detailing each notch, each dart, each piece of the puzzle has given me insight as to how everything is going to come together. The paper not only preserves my original pattern, but the pattern pieces are much more sturdy and they don't slip around as much. 10 yards of Swedish paper can trace about 6 patterns, which makes this method an affordable alternative to fusing.
