Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fitting

Do you feel great in the clothes you sew, or do well-fitting garments elude you? Do you have pesky little fitting issues you just don't know how to solve? Then this book is for you: The Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fitting by Sarah Veblen, longtime Threads contributor, sewist, and author.

Most of us know to make muslin mock-ups when we want a really good fit, but don't always know how to read the pulls, stress wrinkles, or bagginess and what to do about it. Sarah Veblen walks you though fitting multiple garment types on various figures, showing real-life examples of how to read the fit.

Skirts, pants, and various types of bodices and sleeves are covered, as well as how to drape a dart, how to fit over a full bust, adjustments for petite figures, and so much more.

You'll also learn how to transfer your changes to the pattern so your final garment will reflect that perfect fit.
