If you’ve never heard of or tried the rub-off method, prepare for a life change. Inside Patternmaking for a Perfect Fit you’ll learn how to trace the pattern of an already existing garment and turn it into another! That means you can recreate your favorite blouse they no longer sell in stores. You can even remake that old skirt you loved but no longer fits just right! Steffani leads the reader through each step of the rub-off method from tracing onto paper to sewing techniques. By creating customized sewing patterns using your own garments, you’re sure to love the look and fit of each piece. It’s the technique fashion and costume industry professionals are using and now you can create garments that complement your body shape and express your personal style. Patternmaking for a Perfect Fit is the book for anyone who loves to sew their own clothes and is looking to create a wardrobe full of stylish, original pieces.
