Description

Good fit improves the comfort and appearance of any garment and is the reason many people sew their own clothes. However, it's common to worry about ruining a pattern when you cut it apart to make a fitting adjustment. "The Perfect Fit" makes pattern alterations easy with proven methods illustrated step-by-step. This complete guide includes analyzing a figure, measuring the body, customizing the pattern, and fine-tuning the fit with small adjustments like moving buttons and reshaping darts. "The Perfect Fit" shows how to change a commercial pattern sized for millions of women into a sewing blueprint sized to fit your figure alone. Altering patterns has never been easier, thanks to the help of 400 step-by-step photographs!
