We've all made at least one garment that just didn't turn out quite right. What was to blame? Perhaps it was the pattern. Believe it or not, all patterns aren't perfect. Some contain drafting glitches, both minor and major. Unfortunately, you rarely discover these errors until you've begun sewing, when it's too late to fix the problem. To help you avoid this sort of disaster, author Judy Barlup shows you how to proofread patterns so you can catch inconsistencies in drafting, marking, and printing before they ruin your project.
