How To Make Shorts And Slacks Patterns That Fit Perfectly!: Illustrated Step-By-Step Guide for Easy Pattern Making (Paperback)
Slacks are usually the hardest garment to get to fit properly. Not so when you begin by using YOUR OWN measurements When you use a commercial pattern you get a pattern that is closest to your measurements, then start to adjust the pattern to try to get it to fit properly. By making your own patterns, you use your measurements, so the pattern has no choice but to fit you. It makes no difference if you're heavy set, pencil thin, tall or short, or anywhere in between, you're going to have a pattern and garment that will fit YOUR measurements perfectly. Throughout this book we'll be using a sample set of measurements and you will simply substitute your own waist and hip measurement, your own crotch measurement, and of course, use the length you'd like to wear your slacks and shorts.
