Descrizione prodotto


Here is the ultimate reference for fitting test garments and transferring accurate adjustments to patterns! No matter what size or shape you are, wearing garments that fit perfectly makes you look and feel better. Rather than making commonly accepted changes to a commercial pattern, the method presented in this guide focuses on the way a test garment fits the body. The fabric is manipulated to improve the fit, and then those specific changes are made to the pattern. The result: patterns that fit perfectly!

With The Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fitting, you'll learn:

- The importance of a fitting axis and how to use it during a fitting

- How to recognize fitting issues, such as drag lines and folds

- How to manipulate fabric to solve common and unusual fitting problems

- How to transfer the fitting changes to your pattern easily

- Basic pattern-making skills to ensure accurate alterations

See the fitting process from start to finish on basic garments, fitted on real people. Then follow fitting solutions on different body types. The lessons you learn will help you fit any body.

5.0 su 5 stelle The New Gold Standard on Fit 9 febbraio 2012
Di Nancy Robertson - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Sarah Veblen has written an extraordinary book that's light year's beyond any of the other fitting books in your bookcase. I just finished reading The Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fitting yesterday, and it's excellent in every respect -- clearly written, comprehensive and systematic with hundred of detailed photos that show every step of the way for a variety of basic pattern styles and figures.

In my five years of sewing clothes, I've picked up a fair number of fitting techniques. But like many people, I use an improvised, hit and miss approach that kind of, sort of works but doesn't give the best possible fit.

In contrast, Perfect Fitting outlines the steps we need to take in an orderly way. The process relies on sewing a series of test muslins which are revised on the body by: establishing the all-important Horizontal Balance Line (a new term for me); releasing tight seams by opening them; clipping tight necklines and armholes; remarking shoulder seams and waistlines; and pinning tucks, darts, and open and close wedges. Then in pattern work, the muslin changes are transferred back to the pattern, the revised pattern is walked and trued, and if necessary a second muslin is sewn for further fitting improvements.

Perfect Fitting concentrates on the bodice and includes all four basic styles: shoulder princess, armhole princess, side panel and darted. All the common bodice adjustments are explained and illustrated: full and small bust adjustments, forward shoulders, rounded back, sway back, etc. Armholes, set in and raglan sleeves, and skirts are also covered, again in a high level of detail. The book does include a section on basic pants fitting, though it is relatively brief.

It's quite obvious that Sarah Veblen's ability to teach rivals her ability to sew because this book conveys not just how to do something but why it needs to be done, and that leads to a deeper understanding. Sarah also stresses the importance of aesthetics in pattern fitting so the fitting changes will enhance the garment's style and the appearance of the figure.

Before Perfect Fitting was published, I read the sample pages that are posted here on amazon, and I urge you to read them, too. I was so impressed with the book, I not only bought it, I also signed up for Sarah's online Bodice/Sleeve Fitting class that starts on the website next week.

If you'd like to improve the fit of your garments and have the Tried and True patterns we all strive for -- the ones that skim our bodies and flatter our figures as only custom made garments can do -- I highly recommend The Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fit.

2.0 su 5 stelle mediocre at best 1 aprile 2014

I really don't understand the glowing reviews on this book. There is no real direction on how to alter patterns to get the perfect fit. There are tons of pictures in this book, many repetitive, that show the author draping and pinning fabric on a model. Then she transfers these pins to a muslin. This is not very helpful because she is basically free-handing the fitting on each different model and not telling how to adjust for this or that.

I much prefer Fit for Real People, The busy woman's fitting book, or The Perfect Fit.

5.0 su 5 stelle The fitting process can be a challenge for a beginner, but worth the time and effort 4 giugno 2012
Di T. Calvert - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I'm not a beginner sewer, but I am new to alterations that go beyond the basics. I have at least 3 figure flaws I'd like to fix to finally achieve a pair of pants that flatters. I started with this book, and when it became too complicated for my understanding (because of my inexperience- the writing and illustrations are very thorough), I referred to Sandra Betzina's Fast Fit for a briefer, simpler introduction. I got the overview for fixing swayback, square waist, a bit of a tummy bulge, and discovered I might also have a flat butt (pelvic tilt from swayback). Sandra's provides one or two illustrations for each issue. Back I went to Sarah Veblen for the step-by-step photos breaking down the process in more detail. Veblen's book has 3 times or more the depth. For example, flat butt requires redrawing a crotch line into more of a horse-shoe shape: less in front, more in back, with the back curve being more steep. Sarah pointed out a few more tips I wouldn't have thought of: the importance of adding equivalent changes to the center seam across the crotch. Her illustration was repeated with an alternate view rotated 45 degrees to better visualize the adjustment. Great!

Also included were several text-only pages describing in detail why the crotch alterations are often a multi-step process: differences from sitting to standing, different body shapes in the crotch, different types of crotch lines for the type of pants (trousers versus slacks versus jeans), etc. 4 to 10 mock-ups are typical before she gets a "great" pants fit for one of her clients. Really? So ending up on my third muslin wasn't a sign that I was a slow learner, eh? Despite the laborious process, I was very happy with the results. For me, it will take a bit more practice and skill to translate the changes made in my 3 dimensional fabric mock-up back to the paper or tissue, but I'm confident this book has everything I need. I'll just have to reread and retry. The only thing missing? A video! :-)

5.0 su 5 stelle Wonderful resource, so many photos! 10 febbraio 2012

This is a fantastic book. I just ordered it last week and it has already helped me advance by leaps and bounds. Within five minutes Sarah's photos and tips had answered three nagging questions. I am a beginning garment sewer, but I have taken a few draping and patternmaking classes so I have an okay grasp of those fundamentals. I think if I were a rank beginner and not experienced at working with patterns this book would be too advanced. But it has already proven very, very helpful for me. I'm starting to work on a lot of projects where I need to create custom slopers by draping directly on duct tape dummies for out of town clients, so having these troubleshooting photos is a lifesaver. Fitting on a person is the best approach, but when your fit model can't move and tell you how things feel, a visual guide explaining so many fit issues is incredibly helpful!

I really have learned so much about fitting in just a few days. The only thing I wish was that the pants section was more comprehensive, but what is there is still very helpful. The book still gets five stars, and frankly just the tips on improving reach in the armscye are worth the price of five of these books! Not only is this helping with my work, but it makes me so excited to design some clothes for myself. Thank you, Sarah!

5.0 su 5 stelle Pattern Fitting with confidence by Nancy Zieman was a great book to get my feet wet 1 febbraio 2015
Di D. Isenhart - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I actually ended up with 3 "fitting" books - and I use them all. I have been sewing for about 24 years but haven't adjusted the patterns (other than length) until this last year. Pattern Fitting with confidence by Nancy Zieman was a great book to get my feet wet. However, after getting the hang of some very basic adjustments, I needed more. The Perfect Fit - The Classic Guide to Altering Patterns took it to the next step with more information on how to make larger adjustments. In addition it had good pictures to show you how to deal with specific fitting issues. Almost as important, it showed me how to use the Dritz Syling Design Ruler. Finally, The Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fitting takes it the last step and has very detailed adjustments. This books show a lot with "test" garments and shows what a "problem" area would look like and then how to fix it. The only problem I had with this book is most of the adjustments are shown with a "worker" and a "model". It is hard to see and make these adjustments on yourself but the book gives you a good idea how to go about it. If you are on your own - there is just more trial and error. As I said I have 3 books. I do use all three and wouldn't want to be with out any of them. When one book failed on some explanation, I found another picked up the slack. I can't be more specific as it was a learning process and I went back and forth a lot.
