I know soon, this nasty, lingering, keep me up all night, cough will go away and I will feel
more like sewing.
Meanwhile, I am entertaining myself reading through my many sewing books.
I LOVE books on sewing and have - more than I care to admit.
When my mother passed away, I inherited her collection also.
One of those books was Fitting Finesse by Nancy Zieman.
I love Nancy Zieman.
I have purchased many of her books and watch her show on a regular basis.
Nancy explains this book as her painless approach to fitting.
As I read through the pages I became more and more interested in this approach.
She calls it Pivot and Slide.
Nancy says the key to a great fit is choosing the right pattern, taking your accurate measurements and using this Pivot and Slide method.
No cutting, slashing, pinching or tucking - just this easy Pivot and Slide technique.
Looks pretty easy.
I was intrigued, so I started reading the reviews on this book; some good, some not so good.
Since I totally trust the opinion of my readers I though I would ask...
Have any of you tried this technique, if so, whadya think?
Is it as easy as it looks?
