McCall’s M6989 Dress Sewing Pattern by Melissa Watson

Learning to fit and make garment pattern adjustments can take time and some practice, but once the fitting is done, your clothing will fit, look, and feel like a million dollars! Fitting your sewing pattern is done before the first pattern piece is cut from your fabric, and continues throughout the assembly and construction of your garment. Fitting is not done just once, but as a series of alterations made throughout the creative adventure of customizing the fit of your garment.
