After reading through, I chose to do my review on adjusting patterns.
This is a big reason why I got into sewing. Being 6' and skinny, it's very hard finding anything that fits. That goes with my children as well.
When Gavin was first born, there wasn't any adjustable elastic for pants then and, well, it was just ridiculous.
This book touches on how you would adjust to make a pattern wider and/or longer. There are also standard sizing charts for infants, children, men, and women which is such an amazing guide. Really great for those that sell clothes, so they can ask for measurements and get a rough idea on what size a child would fall into before making a garment.
And I know this has nothing to do with the book, but Carla does an amazing job with her patterns and making them so easily adjustable.
This is from the Katie pants and as you can see, there's a chart for hip measurement and then another one for the inseam length. She also already adjusts it on the pattern so you don't have to manually figure out the cut line and flare. Her women patterns are amazing with this too. It's hard not to pimp Carla out when she makes it so easy.
And on to the best part!!
