This review is from: Fit for Real People: Sew Great Clothes Using Any Pattern (DVD)
If you can't find the fitting and/or adjustment in this book, they probably don't exist. It covers the most often needed pattern adjustments; as well as taking into account the (statistically) most frequently occuring body shapes (i.e. round shoulders, uneven shoulders, hips, wider/narrower shoulders; enlarging body areas, etc.). Each body part's adjustment is individually covered; as well as need for special dress/tops, etc. styles (i.e.princess). The book is so PROFUSELY ILLUSTRATED diagraming alternation needed to achieve a `perfect fit' that you don't really need to read. The book does not cover special fitting for special needs such as wheelchair-bound, people with arthritis, prostetics, etc. Maybe that will be their next book.
