Full Busted? Sew Clothes That Fit!

Full Busted? Sew Clothes That Fit! Cover

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Created specially for full-busted women—who must often buy oversized clothing simply so they can button the front—this interactive DVD demonstrates how ladies can sew their own clothes for a custom fit and teaches which size patterns will best fit the neck, upper chest, and shoulder areas. Easy to play and pause during alterations, the DVD first explores full-bust fitting basics, listing the tools needed for preparing a pattern, altering a darted front, pin-fitting fabric, and lowering a bust dart. The presentation then tackles style challenges, such as cut-on sleeves and tops and skirts with a twist. Further design techniques reveal how to transfer darts into pleats and move darts virtually anywhere, while video of everyday women displays the final products. Helping to ease both fit frustrations and wallet woes, these cost-efficient garments—including both the side-panel jacket and the princess jacket—offer full-busted women unique style solutions they can't find in any store.
