This was sent to me today. If you can help, please post here, thanks.
I watched an episode of Sew Much More on TV recently where the teacher
was making a muslin for fitting a pattern. Under the pattern when she
traced it were large pieces of dressmaker's carbon (it was actually
waxed) so that as she traced around the pattern on the sewing lines
with a tracing wheel, the pattern was transferred to the underside of
the fabric. I have searched futilely for large dressmaker's carbon
paper on the web. Can someone direct me to a place where I can
purchase some? The pieces I find are much too small and are not waxed.

I use the Burda tracing "carbon"paper comes in packs with 2 different colours white/yellow and red/blue
I have only been able to get the white/ yellow packs lately here in NZ which is a pain because I use it to trace off my patterns on to white interfacing.
My local fabric shop gets it in for me
