My mother-in-law gave this book to me several years ago when I had asked about enlarging patterns. When I first read through it, I hadn't done much sewing, so the concepts she covered were a little over my head. Over the next year I started sewing some, and ended up making costumes for the Christmas play at church. This book was my guide book!!! So many people think you have to have the correct bust measurement for a pattern to fit, but with this book, Nancy guides you to find a pattern that fits through your shoulders (the hardest thing is to fit through the shoulders)-she shows you how to enlarge or decrease a bust, waist, hips, how to compensate for so many hard-to-fit exceptions we all have. These changes sound hard, but there really very easy. I have taken an original '47 pattern and changed it to more today's measurements, and it worked out wonderfully! I highly recommend this book!

Nancy Zieman has long been a guru for those of us who sew at home. This was one of her first books and with even a quick read you can tell why she is still tops in the home sewing world. Just this little hints she gives make this book worth what it is priced. Then there are the project guides where she shows step by step how to fit anyone. This is a must have for anyone with any intention of sewing to fit.

Sewing for yourself and others can often present problems to get the pattern to fit correctly. This book can help you find easy, doable solutions that really work. I keep this book by my sewing machine and it has helped me solve problems more than once! An excellent reference and value.

How do I make how to book reviews unique when they all need to say the same thing? I won't try. This is a good book which covers the subject well. If you like good books which cover the subject well, then try this one.
