Sewing Shirts with a Perfect Fit - The Ultimate Guide to Fit, Style, and Construction from Collared and Cuffed to Blouses and Tunics
Author(s): David Page Coffin
Do you enjoy sewing your own shirts and blouses, but struggle with getting the right fit? In Sewing Shirts with a Perfect Fit, author, teacher, and renowned shirt-sewing expert David Page Coffin shows how you can easily transform the printed, multi-sized patterns included with the book (as well as patterns and favorite shirts you already have) into three different customized basic shirt silhouettes--loose, trim, and close--for both men and women.
Learn about shirts' unique fitting options and the basics of draping fabrics to be wrinkle-free, as you discover how to great a great fit with almost no measuring for any and all body types, including plus-size and athletic figures. Using his couture-inspired draping methods on both standard and custom-shaped body forms (with great tips on how to make your own), David demonstrates how to adjust shoulder and side seams, necklines, sleeves, and armholes, and add darts or new seams to achieve the fit you want for each silhouette.
Get inspired by the four distinctive, original step-by-step shirt design and construction projects that show a variety of classic shirt, shirt-jacket, and shirtdress styles you can make and perfectly fit with the included patterns. Sewing Shirts with a Perfect Fit will give you the skills you need to get the right fit every time
