okay, however...

by AmeliaAirhead on Feb 24, 2013

This book is thorough but not intuitive. Hmmm, well, I was looking for more specific diagnostics of bad fits. I suspect for most of us, the actual form of crotch depth is the seat of the problem (pardon the pun). The diagrams in Sandra Betzina's "No Time To Sew" is a great succinct overview of fitting problem and location to add/subtract. The next step, the detail of altering purchased patterns, is better covered in Singer's "The Perfect Fit".

Great book, great pictures, great advice

by Susan S on Oct 8, 2011

The Sewing Companion Library series is very good. The Easy Guide to Sewing Pants, like the others, quickly gets to the point. It shows what to do with excellent photos and illustrations. The workmanship in the examples is very good. This is a good book to open up whenever you make pants. (Don't let the somewhat outdated styles put you off. Some of my best sewing books are really old. This book is as good, actually better than the old books because the old books don't have much information about making pants.) Like the other books in this series, it's a good book for someone who's ready to jump up beyond beginner into the intermediate and advanced sewing skills. As I've said in other reviews, It's not hard to better your skills, you just need someone to *show* you, with a good discussion about what's being shown, and this book does a great job.
