Fitting is the most in-demand topic for sewers. Whether you are a home seamstress or a professional designer, knowing how to create garments that fit every figure is essential. With Threads Fitting for Every Figure, the toughest fitting challenges are solved. This comprehensive sewing reference from the editors of Threads covers the basics of pattern fitting and includes easy-to-follow sewing techniques that are the hallmark of Threads magazine, a household name in garment sewing. With material appropriate for all skill levels, this book also offers solutions to intermediate-level fitting quandaries and advanced couture-level fitting techniques. Featuring 200 color photos and 100 illustrations, these pages cover everything from assessing your figure and working with patterns to fitting the bodice, fitting for pants and skirts, as well as specialty techniques. With more women learning to sew their own clothing and accessories, Threads Fitting for Every Figure is bound to be an instant classic.

An incomparable collection of the best sewing information available, this book promises to explain, with trademark thoroughness, the full range of garment sewing techniques. It covers all the bases for anyone who delights in sewing: tools (from sewing machines and sergers to pins and needles); materials (fabrics and threads of all kinds); basic sewing (from seams and seam finishes to hand-sewn stitches); garment construction (top to bottom, inside and out); tailoring techniques (for a professional look); even lingerie techniques, pressing tips, embellishments, and much, much more. Without a doubt, this is the complete sewing answer book.
