Graphite pencil marks smudge and are difficult to get out. I have used the sewline white chalk pen but it does tend to catch in the fabric but the marks do stay longer than a regular dressmakers chalk. There is an Amish website with info about using pencils and how to get the marks out. Perhaps you have seen it already but if not here's the link:

I just had a quick look at your blog and I can see that this will be tricky to draw as there are a lot of fine lines. Definitely time to experiment on a test piece first. Good luck it will be an interesting journey. I love graphic art. A friend gave me a colouring book of Escher designs some years ago and I really enjoyed colouring them in.
