I’ve been umming and ahhing about signing up for Susan Khalje’s Couture Dress class ever since we did our Craftsy giveaway a while back. I finally signed up this week and I’m absolutely loving it. I found the progress a little slow at the beginning (I don’t need to see you lay out every single piece…just a representative selection will do!) but I’m a Measure Once, Cut Twice kind of person, so I need all the discipline I can get.
Critical to her whole way of working is to focus on the stitching line and not the cutting line, so I’m going to have to do a much better job marking my pieces before cutting. However, I’m having a terrible time finding the big sheets of waxed tracing paper she uses anywhere online. They have them at Richard the Thread but I’m a bit reluctant to order from any store that enforces a minimum order of $35. I’m sure they have a sound business reason for it, but I don’t like feeling bullied into buying things I don’t need just to get the thing I do.
Does anyone have an online source for these big sheets of waxy tracing paper? If all else fails and there is nowhere else to get it, I’d be happy to split a $35 order with anyone who also needs some.
