Pattern Fitting With Confidence Reviews
THE most useful book and pattern adjusting information I have laid my hands on in years. I thought I would give it a try since I have been sewing for years. This is an excellent "Beginners" book for those just starting out. Simple and easy to understand. Thank you Nancy Zieman.
This book is an excellent, well written text which I hope will remain in print a long time. It is just the sort of easy to understand, well illustrated book which should continue to teach this basic art of pattern fitting to new generations of clothing designers. In it she gave step by step instructions with just enough simplicity for the learner and just enough complexity for the pro.
This book is starting from how to fit for commercial pattern, and how to solve main wrinkles after basting. What eye opening method is slide and pivoting technique to adjust to your size.
Anything by Nancy Zieman is out of the park great. This is my continuous go-to book. I have this in hard copy, but as I am trying to streamline everything, I am giving up my hard copy and going digital.
Nancy presents a very logical and easy to understand way to fit your patterns to your body. Her approach differs from the tissue fitting method and seems easier to do. This book is well illustrated and well organized.
I absolutely love this book and method. It clarified the adjustment process to use on patterns to make clothes fit me better. I've since used the pivot method on a blouse and it fits me beautifully! I also used her slide method, in conjunction changes advised from with "Pants for Real People," on a pair of shorts that made the pattern adjustment easy and flawless. I would highly recommend purchasing this book if your have a body shape that is not the "standard" shape. I can't wait to make more beautiful clothes that actually fit me comfortably!
It was a very good book for some basic changes. It doesn't adequately cover the multiple changes I would consider common. Hard to make all the adjustments needed for our small frames, large cup sizes, sway back etc. I know you can't have every scenario, but I felt it was a little abbreviated for the multiple adjustments.
The best book for any sewer who are having pattern adjustments really love this book. This book should be in any sewer library very helpful and useful information.
