Don’t be put off by the dated styles. The information on fitting is very good
2) Fitting information
I don’t think I look like any of the models in the book, age and shape wise. I focused on the fit issues I have that the models also had.
3) What I made
There was no model fitted for a cigarette/ slim fit style pants. What the book calls fitted pants is not fitted by any means, following what “fitted” is currently understood as. The information is still useful. For the first time ever, I managed to make a pair of cigarette pants that fit so well!
4) Fitting process
The book uses the tissue fitting method. No muslin needed. I don’t cut into my pattern, so I made a muslin. I cut out only one side, as if I was tissue fitting
5) Version I bought
I got the ebook version. The format isn’t very good, with the pictures not being where it was intended to appear. Doesn’t really bother me, considering it’s cheaper
