Not only does Fit For Real People show you how to alter patterns, it provides a history of sizing, explains design and fit ease, and shows you how to map your body. The fit models are of all ages and sizes. You will probably need a friend to help. A great resource.

This is a really great book for full bust alterations. If you follow the directions, you can't go wrong.

This is a really good book to help with basic pattern alterations. Clear concise instructions, good illustrations--The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't include pants. You will have to buy another book to get instruction on pant fitting.

I bought this book specifically for the chapter on doing bust adjustments because I'm very big busted. It had so many more useful things i ended up reading it cover to cover. They explain everything extremely clearly and use many great photos and diagrams to help as well. This is the ultimate guide to help you fit patterns. If you have an asymmetrical body, a bigger bust, smaller bust, a round tummy, no booty or huge booty there is a clear explanation in this book on how to fit whatever unique body issues you might have with your patterns. Also there is some great chapters to help with designing stuff for yourself. Chapter on how to fit women's patterns to teens who are in that in between stage and have a hard time finding patterns for their age. Over all i love this book and i use it as a reference on almost all my sewing projects.
