Fit for Real People
Sew Great Clothes Using Any PatternBook - 2005
This easy and practical fitting system requires no measuring, no drafting skills, no muslin mock-ups--and it works with all brands of tissue paper patterns. Real women of all ages are featured in photographs that explain the steps of cutting out pattern pieces, pinning them together, and adjusting the fit. Special attention is paid to tricky challenges such as accommodating a full bustline, adjusting sleeves, or reworking a garment to make it more flattering, as well as alternative fitting methods such as draping and computer design. Metric conversion charts, charts for comparing pattern company bodice measurements, and a history of American dress design, make this book a versatile reference.--From publisher description.
