Making well-fitting clothes is a challenge for many dressmakers, but especially so for those of us with a curvy shape or a plus-size. This book shows you how to take a standard commercial pattern in a larger size, make some smart adjustments, and end up with clothes that will give you a great, flattering fit. Dressmaking to Flatter Your Shape includes detailed information on selecting fabrics and choosing styles to fit your shape. It explains how to get a perfect fit out of any sewing pattern, with troubleshooting techniques to cover tricky points such as shoulders, necklines, sleeves, hips and waists. Using this book you will also pick up tips on how to personalise a pattern to your own style, by changing the collar or cuffs of a top, or even by drafting your very own skirt pattern from scratch!
