This is a great easy to read and understand book on alterations. Step by step instructions, and you don't wind up with your original pattern in pieces! It has sections on altering patterns for dresses, jackets, slacks and combined alterations ie: waist and hips, or shoulder and bust instead of doing each separately. Highly recommend this book for anyone.

I have been sewing for many years but always found it frustrating to have to grade a pattern up or down by using the seam allowance differences. I would still end up with multiple fittings to get it right. This book showed me a fast and simple way to make the necessary changes without a muslin. Definitely a worthwhile purchase if you do a lot of sewing and don't fit the pattern measurements perfectly.

Best fitting method I've found so far. My particular fitting problem is complicated and necessitated having to go to multiple pages in the book. This required a bit of studying and planning to make sure everything was done in the proper order but the information was all there.

She has detailed instructions on how to alter patterns to fit body types and the instructions are easy to follow. You may have to have some knowledge of sewing but wouldn't have to be an expert to sucesssfuly use her techniques.

I LOVE this book! This is definitely a must have for anyone that needs to make adjustments to patterns. Starting out I was rather intimidated to make adjustments such as the sway back one. There are multiple tutorials online for different methods but Nancy's way is definitely the easiest. With step-by-step visuals and addressing every pattern adjustment you can think of - this book is worth the money.
