After writing my post Tracing Patterns I decided to head to Spotlight to see if I could get any of the tracing paper I was out of. I discovered the product that I saw was called Trace and Toile. It is polyester interfacing by McCall’s.
I hunted around and found an entire roll unopened which is what I was after. Although it feels a little thicker than the one I had (mine was very sheer in some parts) I have held it over a paper pattern and I can easily see through it. There is 25 metres on the roll and it will do me a while. At $1.50 a metre I’m not sure if that is cheap or expensive but given the fact I didn’t like tracing paper it is good value to me.
I’ve kept the label so that I know what to ask for next time directly as I won’t be needing any for a while and I’m likely to forget the details.
