by David Page Coffin

Learn from a sewing expert how to transform the supplied patterns into three different shirt silhouettes using his unique, couture-inspired draping methods. 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 you already have) into three different customized basic shirt silhouettes - a loose fit, a trim fit, and a close fit - for both men and women. Learn about shirts' unique fitting challenges, how to measure for each silhouette, and how to solve fit issues for all sorts of body shapes, including plus-size and athletic figures. Using his couture-inspired draping methods on both standard and custom-shaped body forms (which he also shows you how to make), David demonstrates how to adjust seams and armholes and add darts to achieve the right fit for each silhouette. Get inspired by the four distinctive, original step-by-step shirt design and construction projects that show a variety of classic and contemporary shirt and shirtdress styles you can make with the included patterns. Sewing Shirts with a Perfect Fit will give you the skills you need to get the right fit every time!
