Intro At Threads magazine, we understand how home sewers strive to create garments that fit. For the past 25 years, we have been engaging our readers in the fitting debate and enlisting the help of top sewing experts and designers. Our staff, too, brings their own point of view, so we test and test and test again the steps for projects, tips, and techniques. After all, we want our readers be the best home sewers they can be.

We understand that not all sewers have the same approach to achieving good fit. Some want to do just what_—Ès needed while others want, and are skilled enough, to tackle more involved techniques. And then there are those with advanced skills who will settle for nothing less than a couture fit. No matter what your personal approach might be, there is something for you in our new guide, Threads Fitting for Every Figure.

Our answer to your many fitting queries is the special book you now hold in your hands. You will find a handy reference to the basics of fitting, working with patterns and muslin, fitting the bodice, fitting pants and skirts, and a section on special fitting techniques. Two contributors in particular warrant special mention: Carol Fresia, who took on the task of pulling the book together, and her editor, Judith Neukam, Threads senior technical editor, who made sure that it all made good sense.

We wish you the best of luck in your fitting endeavors and hope you continue the conversation with us at www.threadsmagazine.com, where we always look forward to your comments and feedback.
