Any help / directions in which to look would be appreciated :-)
Have you thought of purchasing the layout boards many fabric stores sell?
This is about two yards long, and one and a half wide, and marked in a one
inch grid with the bias running thru it.
Some large tablet paper (18x22, or so), and you only need block trace (graph
like in elementary school) your pattern.
I use standard weight tracing paper, or sketch paper of this size for most
patterns, and once perfected transfer them to a thim poster weight paper (not
poster board as this si heavy, and does not unfold well).
By taping the paper together for length, or width you can create some
amazingly sized patterns from the graph method.
Imagine, I once took a clear plastic grid (4/inch) and graphed a pair of
braccae to my size (32 waist), and then to my friend (58 waist).
If you just want to use the grid paper itself, no matter what, check a local
blue print, or office supply company (I find my sword strapping at Office
Depot in bulk). Many suppliers have desk pads in many size grids.
