Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very comprehensive  Dec 19, 2009
I cant rave enough about this book. It is broken down into 3 main sections:
1)Style selection for body type

The Fitting and Alteration sections are then broken down into 3 different methods.
Fitting section covers the Measurement method, Tissue fitted method and Trial garment methods of Fitting.

The Alteration section studies the Seam method, the pivot method and the 'corrected' slash method.

In all cases the book is unbiased as it studies the various methods for acheiving the same things.

The last 300 pages is a fully expanded reference of just about every possible pattern alteration. It gives details of how the alteration would be done no matter which method you use.

This is probably the most comprehensoive book on the subject, and certainly the most comprehensive on the subject of the seam method of alteration.

I have many books on Fitting and alteration and this is by far my favorite. It will be one I refer back to as long as I sew and draft patterns.
The Only Book you will ever need for Pattern adjustments.  Nov 14, 2009
I have a variety of fitting and adjustment books I have purchased over the years . This book has all the adjustments you can think of with 3 diagrammed alternatives ( ways ) to do the adjustment . This book and the Pants for all People , and Jackets for all People ( Palmer/Pletsch books ) are the best ones for any sewer.
