Proper clothing fit is the biggest challenge when sewing with common patterns. Fit for Real People helps the reader understand the techniques that determine fit, and provides valuable information on solving common problems. People who sew clothes for a living know that a good fit results from a hands-on approach with each person's shape and proportions in mind. This process can be a rude awakening for some, but it insures that clothes will fit properly. After 25 years of fitting thousands of different bodies, the authors have found a way to teach proportionate sewing that really works.
