I traced the shirt pattern, using 4 mil thick plastic sheeting - the type that is used for painting drop cloths. I prefer to use the plastic instead of paper. It is easy to find - this came from Target. It is wide and transparent. Strength is a bonus as it doesn't tear like tissue paper. I save the larger scraps and sew them together to use for the next round of tracing. I won't win any prizes for pattern beauty, but I can live with that. This looks like it could work. Let's see how it translates into fabric.
