    You mentioned tracing original pattern. I used to use blueprint tracing paper to trace patterns in different sizes while keeping the original intact. Can't find any resource for that type of large roll of paper anymore. What do you use to trace patterns on?

    Hi I've asked the same question 3 times now. I'll perfectly understand if you don't know the answer to it but I would really appreciate it if you could email me back to let me know either way. My question was... I have 2 sided material. 1st side is suede & 2nd side is fur.(not real). I'd like to make a 2 sided coat. How do I hide the seams? I'd really like it if you could email me back. Address is saasca09@gmail.com
