Fit the Shoulders, Neck, and Back

Threads magazine - 183 - Feb./Mar. 2016 Issue
Article Image
In this article from Threads #184 (April/May 2016), Threads contributing editor Louise Cutting shows you how to get a better fit in a few key areas. She writes: It’s a rare individual who fits into a commercial pattern without adjustments. Among the most common fit challenges I see in students and clients are forward shoulders, a forward neck, and a rounded upper back. The effects of time on the body can emphasize these issues. Whether slight or pronounced, postural variations can make your clothes hang awkwardly and feel uncomfortable. I’ll show you how to recognize these fitting problems, and then how to make easy pattern changes to resolve them. Video Extra: How to Adjust a Sleeve for a Forward Shoulder
