To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Very disappointed with this book. Kenneth basis the fitting problems of 5/6 women who have similar issues ( none match my promlems) and I do not find the layout easy to follow at all. Making 3 Toile's of one garment is not my idea of fun. I wanted something to show me how to address trouser issues in particular. Waste of money and not worthy of the hype.
i bought this even though I've been sewing 50 yrs, i have found Kenneth D King to be a Master of his trade, it just goes to show there's always something to learn, I worked in the clothing industry from the 70s to the 90s making for amongst others Marks and Spencers , that was the days when they would send whole shipments back if the colour of the buttons were wrong. At £20 its a fair price for a hardback and it needs to be read slowly to take information in and process it.
I have been wanting a book like this for years. Many books tell you how to alter for one problem or another but never tell you what can happen once that alteration is made making further alterations necessary. The use of real women as models is very encouraging as very few of us have the perfect figure. This book was worth waiting for and is a valuable asset to any garment sewers library. Thank you Kenneth King and Judith Neukham
I really like the book but the pictures would have been better if they included a 'before' and 'after' image. The pictures are detailed and show the steps to take but don't show the final photo to demonstrate the end result.
Man darf sich nicht vom Layout täuschen lassen - das wirkt zwar etwas altbacken, aber der Inhalt ist super. Anhand vieler Bilder werden Passform-Probleme erläutert bzw. erklärt, wie man erkennt, was überhaupt das Problem ist. Dann wird gezeigt, wie man die Probleme behebt. Mir hat es auf jeden Fall geholfen!!
