Fitting is more than learning how to adjust patterns. It is achieving a feeling of self-confidence that comes from knowing that your clothes are comfortable and attractive. Well-fitted garments that are oversized look fashionably loose-fitting rather than baggy; garments that are close to the body allow you to move comfortably because they are not binding. Whatever the style, a good fit eliminates unattractive wrinkles and gaping that draw attentions to problems. The Perfect Fit comes packed with clear, easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step colour photography that will help you master the art of fitting in no time. When you have successfully completed fitting adjustments on one pattern, you can take similar steps with other patterns and gradually develop expertise through experience. In the process you will educate your eye to see additional improvements worth making. Every time you work through a fitting technique featured in The Perfect Fit you will learn something of value.
