I've bragged on this book in the past. I ABSOLUTELY love this book! I own the 1st ed which came out in 1992. So it was definitely time for an upgrade. I think the fact that this book won't even bulge in price is definitely testament to how good it is. I was able to solve most of my fitting issues using this book. And it's an invaluable resource since I sew for clients. I love that it provides multiple suggestions for making fit adjustments/alterations.
(1992 version. I've had mine for a few years now. I can't even remember when I bought it . It's hands down one of my fave fitting books. The others being Vogue Fitting, Singer Pefect Fit, Palmer/Pletsch Fit for Real Bodies)
I can't wait to get my little greasy hands on this book. I'm so excited (thank you Jesus)!!!! I've waited a good while for updated version (feels like forever) and now I'll have it and at a significant discount. I'll be going to bed with a smile on my face. I can mark it off of my Christmas list. Now I'm just waiting for this 5th ed. book to go on sale.....
What about you,get any special deals on sewing related stuff as of late??? Are you waiting to get the perfect deal??? Do share!
(Update 6/4---Based on Rebecca's comments below I think I'm going to skip this one. So sad because I really had high hopes. I forgot to mention that I already own the 4th ed of this book which I really like. For kicks and gigles I may see if I can get my hands on an even earlier version. They're always selling and for dirt cheap.)
