Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Finally someone has written an in-depth fit book that is reader-friendly and reality-based with excellent photos of real people. If you read if from cover to cover, you will understand not only the concept of fit but also why you have experienced frustrations in the past.” —Sandra Betzina, host of television's "Sew Perfect" and author of No Time to Sew, Power Sewing, and More Power Sewing

“At last, Fantastic Fit for Every Body reveals that fitting is every bit as creative, fun, and satisfying as sitting down at the sewing machine and sewing. This book is crammed with fitting solutions--many I've never seen in print--and each one has been tested on a real person. Fantastic Fit for Every Body not only makes fitting fun but also is full of ideas and inspiration.” —Marcy Tilton, renowned sewing author and founder of the Sewing Workshop
