Foolproof Skirt Fitting
Sarah Veblen’s skirt fitting technique from Threads #179 (June/July 2015) uses a grid-based system to achieve the perfect fit. She writes:
Through experimentation and experience, I’ve developed a method that solves fit issues one by one, logically and without guesswork. Best of all, it achieves a high level of refinement regardless of your shape or size. To get a custom fit, I start by using a grid to align a muslin test garment on the body, and finish by draping personalized darts to fit the waist. Working with gridlines is a simple concept, and it gives you full control over the fitting process. Once you learn the technique, you’ll be able to fit a skirt on any figure with complete confidence.
