Guide To Fitting


Palmer Pletsch Complete Guide to Fitting by Marta Alto and Pati Palmer

Any fashion sewer reading 'The Palmer Pletsch Complete Guide to Fitting' for the first time will surely feel that they have just had a 'light bulb moment'! It is what I felt when I first discovered 'Fit for Real People' 20 years ago.

In 1998 I was a technically trained and experienced fashion teacher, pattern maker and grader and FFRP completely changed how and what I taught for the next 20 years. It took me in a new and exciting direction in my career in the Australian sewing industry because it all made so much sense and was just sooooo easy. I have since trained 100's of women to 'tissue fit' fashion patterns and to understand and appreciate their unique and individual bodies.

And, of course, over those 20 years the learning never stopped, for me or the amazing collection of Palmer/Pletsch teachers around the world. Every new student offered a new fitting opportunity and either helped to consolidate the original methods or expand and improve the basic techniques.

It was therefore with great anticipation that I looked forward to all that knowledge and experience being channelled into a brand new, completely updated text that will guide both sewing teachers and students through the next 20 years......and I was definitely not disappointed!

The Palmer Pletsch Complete Guide to Fitting is the most definitive, comprehensive book on fitting individual figures that I have seen during my 40 years in the sewing industry and it's clear step-by-step format and fresh, modern presentation will make it a fail-proof companion to every seamster.

I am sure that every sewing enthusiast, professional dressmaker and fashion teacher will learn new techniques and expand their knowledge to seamlessly achieve what every woman wants - perfect fit!
