Product description

Review

Among the many topics in this book, Sarah discusses taking your measurements, creating muslins to test the design, transferring the changes to flat patterns, and making adjustments to the pattern. --PatternReview Blog, February 2012

Sarah has designed this as a visual step-by-step guide to fitting so that you can see in great detail exactly what is happening with each adjustment. --PatternReview Blog, February 2012

See the fitting process from start to finish on basic garments, fitted on real people. Then follow fitting solutions on different body types. The lessons you learn will help you fit any body. It is very easy to read, and the directions are extremely clear and concise. --Faye's Sewing Adventure Blog, February 10, 2012

I spent £90 at a local college on a dressmaking and tailoring course. I should have saaved my money and bought this book much earlier as I learned more from it than I did on my course. I think this book would suit beginners and those with intermediate dressmaking skills.

An interesting reference book, well illustrated with step by step photographs rather than illustrations. Because it's a book on fitting, I like the fact that it doesn't use model-like women. Just women of all shapes and ages.
