5.0 out of 5 stars Pattern Fitting with Confidence Dec 13 2009
By Shahana
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nancy Zieman thorough as usual. June 24 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

Good book but its more for a person that has more experience in sewing. I would still recommend it to a beginner. Its still a good book to have on hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars quick easy to understand fitting May 17 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The fitting techniques in this book are simple and quick compared to the slash and spread techniques most fitting books and tutorials describe. I look forward to trying them out. Gave it 4stars as I'm not sure if it will help address more complicated fitting issues

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Useful Book April 22 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
