I'm one of the pattern testers for the 1912 project (this year is the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking) and recently made up a Princess Slip from the 1912 La Mode Illustree, a French fashion magazine. Since I was making it in muslin and not for a finished garment, I thought this would be a good project to test the new marking pens. The marks are supposed to disappear with heat, reappear if put in the freezer at 14 degrees F or less, and completely disappear in water. Here are the pictures of my results so far. I haven't tried to freeze it - my freezer is full!

|After using a hot iron on lace placement lines, they disappeared. I avoided the fold line with the iron.|
If anyone is interested in seeing my comments on constructing the slip (yeah, I know - so not quilting!) you can see the post here.
