Book Description

Take a fitting masterclass from the team behind The Great British Sewing Bee.

From adjusting patterns to altering ready-made garments, learn how to personalise your makes to suit your style with this go-to guide. Starting with the basics, learn how to measure yourself and grade between sizes before moving onto pattern adjustments including darts, bust, bum, back, bicep and mobility adjustments.

Discover the art of preparing and fitting a toile to create a custom fit for your body, with expert tips from the world of couture and costume making. Featuring a section with advice on altering clothes you already own, you'll also be able to inject a new lease of life into ready-made garments that don't fit quite right.

This book is an indispensable reference for skilled sewers that will show you how to get a perfect fit to create that professional finish.
