A good summary of fitting techniques Review by Dona

I really love this concise collection of common fitting techniques. I can find what I need without having to search through a larger book of fitting techniques.

Handy one volume reference Review by Suzanna

This is a great, one-stop publication for various fitting issues.
Material is well presented, with great photography. A must for every sewing studio.

Fabulous information Review by Sunny

Detailed, specific, useful, readable directions and diagrams. Stuff I should have know LONG ago! I'm ap retty accomplished seamstress, and some of these fittings I have done just by reworking muslins over and over, but this will make life so much simpler.

Worth every cent!

good information Review by Mrs K

I just received my issue but haven't thoroughly read it yet. It has a lot of information gleaned from years of Threads magazines all in one spot along with additional information. I'm sure it will be a big help in my fitting journey.
