Customer Review

VINE VOICEon March 7, 2012
This is a really good video if you are new to fitting and/or have picked up the book Fit for Real People: Sew Great Clothes Using ANY Pattern (Sewing for Real People series) for the first time. Marta Alto is a wonderful instructor. She is very clear and provides many tips along the way.

This should have been a double DVD, there is just so much info in the book; this DVD leaves you wanting more. My additional criticism is that I would have like to seen more people fitted; instead of one or two people in different styles. If you don't have the same fitting issues as the models, you still don't know exactly what to do after viewing.

My last criticism may sound minor, but it is a major issue for me, is how dark the video is. The is the case with many of the other videos in this series. The new Jeans for Real People: Learn to Fit and Sew Jeans for YOUR Body! seems to have slightly better lighting.

If you are a beginner, owning this video wouldn't hurt. I don't regret buying it. Obviously the specialized videos like Pants for Real People: Fitting Techniques and Full Busted? Sew Clothes That Fit! give you more in-depth information.
