Well, it would be if I had someone to help me. The assistance of a second person is absolutely essential to this fitting method unless you are double-jointed with extra-long arms, eyes in the back of your head and can pin tissue without pinning yourself or moving your body - and hence the tissue - as you bend and twist to do so.
I don't think it's made clear enough that this fitting method is - at least in the beginning - essentially a two-person process. The book is nice enough, the system appears well-thought-out and clearly explained, and I'm hoping to book on a course early next year, so I'm keeping the book - but sadly it is a waste of money if you think this book will enable you to fit clothes to yourself, by yourself, all alone. There are other methods to do this such as obtaining a 'sloper' or block, which seem to me to be far better and more versatile for the person working single-handed.

Worth every penny. The previous reviews were spot on. As someone who is teaching themselves to sew already by simply applying the tissue fitting principle has already paid off. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
