    I've been sewing for over 40 years. My shape keeps changing, so I don't make labor-intensive garments. But I have learned a lot of fitting tweaks over the years. This is the first time I've been truly gobsmacked in a long time! Ms. Neukam, you are amazing. I just wish I had learned from you in my formative years.
