The text includes a section on fit problems and solutions that can be referenced after making a muslin for better fit. Instructions on how to add proper seam allowances to woven and knit patterns are also included.With many fashion-forward and on-trend patterns, this book is an indispensible resource for creating modern and professional menswear designs.
