It will be THE MOST comprehensive Fitting Guide when it is complete. You can purchase the Sections you want as they become available. It will be updated. And your input will be considered.  You will be able to use this for the rest of your life and on all the garments you sew for anyone in your life.

My 30 plus years of creating patterns in the Fashion and Outer wear industries combined with current home sewing solutions to make fitting concise and intuitive. Many of the adjustments are similar to those in the home sewing space, however other videos will show how to expand on these solutions and help you detect the fitting issues you want to solve. There are solutions I've created myself that are simpler and more accurate.

Everything has been considered. Does your garment have a dart? Is it on the Fold? Does it have a Cut-On Sleeve? Does it stop at the waist? Almost all possible solutions are offered! And if it's not there, let me know.

Watch the Introduction video to learn more and see some pages of the PDF!

All the Fitting videos will be available on YouTube. They are a companion to the PDF. They will help- but the PDF will be the ultimate Tool!
