I imagine that might not work with the darker colors.
But until the steam, the marks are super visible!
Normally, I start pinning and cutting things from one end of the fabric, and go my merry way. This time I was paranoid about running out of irreplaceable gorgeousness, so I laid everything out with a few pins here and there and worked my way through, hoping the fabric would not run out before my pattern pieces did.
Not to mention many, many more hand sewing opportunities!
