Probably you all noticed that there are a lot of us trying to achieve proper fitting trousers this year. Maybe because I am busy with the pants I see this topic popping up on blogs more often than usually.
Wonderful Sarah Liz – who is sewing trousers as well and wrote a lot of great posts regarding trousers fitting issues (check this one with fantastic advises) – has shared on her blog inforamtion about a book – The Classic Guide to Altering Patterns – The Perfect Fit.
First I thought – well… another book; shall I buy it; is there really something new…
What shall I said – I am glad I did it. It constrains a huge amount of very useful information of figure types, how to measure,
how to fit and alter patterns for upper body
And of course there is a chapter on pants fitting. I like the way it is done. Very clear pictures, easy to see the issues and clear explanation of pattern alteration.
If you do not have this book – well, I could say – another must have in your sewing library. I will for sure use some advised when making next trousers
My latest wearable muslin needs only to have belt attached and then I can wear it at home – and maybe not only …
I put on the pattern all alteration for the next one – with this book it should be easier.
So there is still hope for my trousers
