"This is a comprehensive how-to book about altering commercial patterns to customize the fit to one's own body before cutting out fabric and sewing the garment. Poor fit is the number one reason many sewers get discouraged with garment sewing. Author Sarah Veblen guides the reader through the steps of sewing a muslin test garment, fine-tuning the fit by pinning the garment to mold perfectly to the wearer's body, marking the adjustments, and then transferring those alterations to the commercial pattern. Veblen had developed this method during her career as a professional sewer and teacher and it is far more comprehensive and accurate than quick-fix flat-pattern methods in which patterns are altered using only a few body measurements. The results produce a perfectly fitting garment every time"--
""Reference for sewers with step-by-step instructions for fitting test garments on the body, then transferring adjustments to paper patterns before cutting out and sewing the final garment"--Provided by publisher"--
