The Book

Make It Fit will provide foolproof solutions on ways to tailor clothing for all body types. With illustrated instructions, this manual shows users how to measure, calculate and mark basic patterns to customised dimensions. It also includes a pack of 29 full-sized slopers - basic patterns for garment sections, without style lines or seam allowances - printed on a soft, synthetic fabric to drape over the body or model form, allowing users to mold the pattern over an actual form to attain the correct measurements.
