Feb 23, 2009

Threads Magazine

Threads is known for its focus on sewing technique, fit & fashion.  Our popular 4-part DVD series shows you exactly how to adjust patterns to achieve a fit that’s just right from top to bottom. Moving in a logical sequence we’ll walk you through how to fit the torso, arms, bust and finally the hips & waist. As a bonus you’ll get expert fitting advice from Manhattan designer Kenneth D. King.

Above is a sample of the step-by-step instruction you will find in the Fitting DVD series including:

– the fine points of fitting the shoulder

– the essential anatomy of an arm and sleeve

– how to adjust a bodice front and the basics of fitting the bust

– and getting the right measurements for fitting the hips and waist
