If you need to transfer long, straight lines from your pattern to your project pieces, use masking tape. First, fold the pattern along the marking line and position the pattern on the project piece. Then align the tape with the fabric, next to the pattern fold. Mark the tape to indicate which edge is the reference so you don't forget after the pattern has been removed. When you sew, be careful not to stitch the masking tape!

Knitters use something called Highlighter tape.

We use it to mark which line of a pattern we're knitting, and it's picked up and removed constantly. It also sticks to clothing. (I just experimented). It comes in a variety of colors, too, and it's see through. Would something like that work?
