About this item

Learn all facets of pattern fitting and alteration to give you the background and guidance needed to achieve a custom fit on any pattern from any company, including the following:

• Take just one measurement for tops and one for skirts to determine the right pattern size. Find out what to do if you are between sizes or a different size top and bottom.

• Make a body map with a close-fitting dress pattern to see how you differ from the “standard” on which sewing patterns are based.

• Learn from real people examples of a variety of bodies and their individual alterations.

• Use the book’s new wrinkle dictionary to identify a needed pattern alteration. Wrinkles point to the problem, say the authors, and now you can look up the page reference for a solution.

Throughout the book, step-by step instructions are accompanied by full-color photography and a new style of technical art that is extremely clear. Short captions explain each illustration.
