TIPS FOR TRACING PATTERN PIECES
You can use so-called Swedish tracing paper, which is a non-woven, quite transparent, holds better than tissue paper and is environmentally friendly.
If you want your cut pattern pieces to last for a long time, you can use age-resistant construction plastic(info here). It is not environmentally friendly and can contain toxins, but it lasts a long time and is the easiest option when it comes to tracing, as it is completely transparent. In addition, you get a lot of plastic for the money.
