Ahead of the Curve is the first sewing book to empower curvy and plus size sewists to feel body confident by sewing a wardrobe that fits. Don't change your body to fit your clothes—change your clothes to fit your body!

Ahead of the Curve includes 5 basic garments patterns, which includes a pair of trousers, a t-shirt, a sleeveless top and two dress designs. Jenny takes you through a series of "Fit Clinics"—tutorials and case studies demystifying the fitting process—showing you how to adjust these patterns to master the perfect fit for your body shape. Once you have got to grips with this, you can go on to customize your closet and create an unlimited array of fantastic clothes that celebrate your body. If you're curvy or plus size, trying to find clothes that fit and reflect your personal style can be incredibly difficult and frustrating. Plus size people so often feel excluded and like they can't express their personality through clothes. This book finally changes that.

This book will be mailed from the USA. If you are not based in the USA and would like to order from a local source, please check out this blog post

Excellent guide to fitting!

Thank you for all the work you did on this book.
I was able to successfully fit a sleeve that has given me lots of trouble in the past!

It's an excellent visual of fitting issues and solutions. It gets straight to the point, helps you understand what's happening, and gets you results. I purchased it just to be able to recommend it to sewists! And I heartily recommend this book!
