This question came to mind last night as I was pulling my Hot Patterns Trouseau Nightgown pattern out to read the instructions. See I really like this pattern...and I really need a new nightgown for vacation...however, I put the pattern back. Why you ask? Too much work to trace. Yeah, I know...sad right!? I will happily cut a pattern out and cut it apart. Do gyrations and gymnastic feats to get it to fit my well-rounded body...but trace a pattern and I start to back away from the cutting table...and not slowly may I add!
So this is why I have an amazing collection of Burda magazines - both the monthly and the plus size ones - and have made just one garment from them. And then only recently...I think I'm a cutter. Oh shoot, I'll just stand up and proudly admit - that I AM a cutter. I'm taking my scissors to that pattern tissue and I'm wacking away with glee. I'm not looking for the tracing paper, my sharpie markers and some rulers. I'm not searching through miles and miles of lines (Burda magazine patterns) to find the garment I'm looking for and I'm not spreading sheets of thick white paper out and laying tracing paper on it to get my garment traced out.
Nope...not happening...well not often...cause it's just not me! So tell me..."Are you a cutter or a tracer?" That's the Question of the Day, folks, so talk back to me!
