At my last ASG sewing group I was able to brouse through another member's copy of "Patternmaking for Fashion Design" and was so impressed I came home and ordered my very own copy. Although it had a couple of bad reviews on Amazon.com, I have found it to be a very thorough and comprehensive guide to all things about fitting, and I seem to be all about fit this year. Of course it's major premise is drafting patterns and has compete sections on rotating darts for different effects, knits and other fabric, and lots more that I have not yet discovered. This book will stay on my coffee table upstairs rather than down in the sewing room (for now at least). I hope to read a little every day.
