"ALTERING PATTERNS TO FIT YOU"
Pattern companies use a "standard" set of measurements for each pattern they make. Since very few women's measurements match each of these "standard" measurements, it is usually necessary to "alter" the pattern before it can be used. The "guesswork" and "trial and error" on altering patterns can be extremely frustrating! It has caused many a seamstress to "give up" her sewing.
"Altering Patterns to Fit YOU!" gives complete step-by-step instructions and illustrations on how to take your measurements and then gives detailed instructions on adjustments that may be necessary.
From the simple "length" changes to more difficult adjustments "Altering Patterns To Fit YOU" covers the entire spectrum, including adjustments to slacks, blouses, dresses, darts, necklines, waistlines, sleeves, etc. Also included are pages of "problem/solution" scenerios, covering specific adjustment problems, such as square shoulders, sloping shoulders, high hip, sway back, large upper arms, large elbows, and more.
You'll never have to "wonder" if you made the right adjustments -- you'll KNOW they're right!
