Custom Fit Knit Jackets
$12.49 – $24.95
Jean Frost shows how to adjust one master pattern for narrow shoulders, short or long arms or waist, a large bust, and other common fit issues to create 12 jackets. When your master fits, they will all fit.
Jean Frost’s expertise with tailored knits, especially jackets, is well known. In Custom Fit Knit Jackets, you learn to use one master pattern to create 12 jacket silhouettes.
The process to custom fit your master requires only simple math and graph paper. Using real-body examples, Jean shows how to adjust patterns for narrow shoulders, long arms, short or long waist, a large bust, and other common fitting problems. When your master fits, all your jackets will fit.
Reminiscent of the designer details that have made the Chanel jacket a signature piece for more than 50 years, the details in this book add professional finish to collars, pockets, fabrics, and hand-stitched silk linings.
