At last, now I finally understand. I have struggled so much getting home made clothes to fit my bust, shoulders and armholes properly. This DVD explains it all, even the alterations needed for complex pattern styles. I am so grateful. My family laughed at me for buying myself BIG GIRL PORN for Christmas. If only they knew just how exciting this DVD really is for the home dressmaker.
I've taken off the star this team always lose for poor production values - bad light, fuzzy sound here and there - but it explains so much about fit that I have found helpful both in sewing and knitting. I am seriously rubbish at Math, so it kind of made my head ache, but I am determined to master altering both knitting & sewing patterns so they fit properly. I have watched it twice, and (on that happy day when I have time) I'll watch it again until I get my head around it.
If you are OK with numbers and angles, then get this DVD. Even dyslexic people like me will find it useful. Understanding the principles has shown me several things I can do already, even though I have not mastered altering a pattern yet.
I have been dressmaking for years and have always had to alter the bust in dresses but have been put off buying some patterns as I thought the alterations would be difficult. Not with this dvd it is amazing I can now make anything. The DVD gives simple straightforward instructions on how to make the alterations wish there were more DVDs like this I find it so much easier watching the DVD rather than having to follow instructions in a book. Just wish I had bought it years ago.
Superb! Its true they say if you have a larger bust you wear baggy clothes to fasten them at the front but the main garment just doesn't fit. This DVD shows how to choose a pattern size that will fit your body and alter the pattern to accommodate your fuller bust.
Some of the production quality is a let down but don't be put off the content is well worth a bit of jelly sound or dark set here and there.
Well done. This information was exactly what I was looking for and very professional. It explained how to make full bust adjustments for different types of patterns and as promised showed the Teacher/Dressmaker fitting different models with differing shapes. Excellent. Sue
I watched all of this DVD the same day it arrived! What a revelation! With clear explanations and instructions on full bust alterations on different tops, dresses and jackets to fit both young and mature models. Fantastic - I can't wait to get started!
I am new to pattern alterations and although I have several books, I found this dvd really useful as you can see how things are being done and you can obviously repeat it over and over again until you totally understand. I would recommend this dvd.
I fully recommend this video which exceeded my expectations. I needed an urgent lesson on how to sew a wedding dress for some with a full bust. Thank you you have saved me from my tearing my hair out. Excellent DVD
