Kenneth D. King offers expert sewing techniques for finding and diagnosing garment fitting issues. The book describes how to “read the wrinkles” on clothing to find and diagnose fitting problems. Working with six volunteers from Threads magazine staff for the book, Kenneth diagnoses their fit, creates muslins, and alters the test garments to create perfectly fitting templates for future garments.
The six volunteers have different body types, so most readers will recognize their own fit issues, as well as gaining experience diagnosing fit problems they might not have seen in themselves. Kenneth discusses many fit fixes, from bust adjustment to armscye adjustment and dart placement. Labeled diagrams, clear pictures, and clever advice make this book invaluable to garment fitting enthusiasts.
