    Horrid paper used for pattern which make cutting out very tricky

    Posted by Kate on 19th Dec 2018

    Overall design worked well but paper used for pattern was too thick, hard & inflexible making it difficult to cut out fine fabric and unable to easily see fabric underneath to ensure I was cutting with the grain. There are few pressing instructions, for example nothing said about best way to press raglan sleeve. I appreciate it is an intermediate patter but even so.
