Your body is unique. In order to get the fit you need, you’ve got to be able to determine the difference between your measurements and those of the pattern you’re starting with. In this excerpt from Teach Yourself to Sew Season 5, Threads Executive Editor Judith Neukam and Threads Associate Editor Stephani Miller will show you how to do that so you can be confident in the accuracy of your final fit. Teach Yourself to Sew was created with beginners in mind, but sewers of any level can use these tutorials to brush up on their skills. You can find more excerpts from this season by visiting Teach Yourself to Sew Season 5 or visit our store to purchase season 5.  Watch season 5 now!
