“I have one of the world’s most challenging figures to fit–I could go into detail about it because I have been sewing for over 40 years. Being somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes to fit and construction, I have agonized over my clothing for years–literally! I read a review of your book Fit for Real People and thought, “Humph, I’ve heard THAT before….” Anyway, long story short, I bought the book and FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE I HAVE CLOTHES THAT FIT!!!!! Of course I immediately purchased your book Pants for Real People, and the same thing happened–PANTS THAT FIT!! Now, honestly my patterns look like ribbons that have been taped together, but I don’t care. Thanks for allowing me to have clothing that fits and flatters.”
