I ordered this as I have a few of the Singer Sewing Reference books and I was not disappointed. It covers the basic problems people experience fitting pants and gives clear directions to understand and alter the problem areas. Clear photos help enormously. Although the pants pattern they use is not the most up to date in terms of fashion,( pleated front with reasonably wide leg) it matters not, you can adapt the alterations to any pattern. I am pleased I bought it.

The book has excellent illustrations with clear instructions on how to make nearly any imaginable alteration to pants. There are also good construction instructions. The book is both thorough and easy to understand--a most welcome addition to my sewing reference library.

Pattern alterations that make sense 27 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Shows you how to move beyond the limitations of the "lengthen or shorten here" guide on the pattern. Practical and easy to follow.

Singer: Sewing Pants That Fit 16 Feb 2012
By Adrian - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is a thorough book on making the necessary alterations to commercial pants patterns and accommodate the common figure issues people encounter when making their own pants. Good book, great reference. I just wish they had a lie-flat version of this so I could keep it open without destroying the spine while I' sewing.
