This pattern book features step-by-step instructions on fitting and sewing pants for women of all different body types using the twin techniques of tissue- and fabric-fitting. Important sewing choices are highlighted, including choosing fabrics, selecting appropriate alteration tools, and finding styles that are most flattering. The fit-as-you-sew process of making pants is illustrated with progressive photographs of fitting pants for nine women of different size and shapes. Covered are a variety of styles including non-roll and expandable waistbands; centred, lapped, and invisible zippers; faced and contour waistlines; and cargo, double welt, and simple side seam pockets.

The alteration instructions are also good. I am glad I have it.
Not for a beginner sewer but definitely for a beginner fitter.
"Fit is fun! If you can think in 3-D, you will marvel at your ability to solve fit puzzles. If you sew with this book close by, you will love the clothes you sew, they will flatter your figure because of the fit."
This book is probadly not for the absolute beginner
