    1. I'm giving this a tentative rating of 3 stars, seeing as I have yet to make a pair of pants using the techniques in this book.The good:- It has lots of information on how to decode wrinkles and a wealth of pictures showing what they mean. My pastime has now become analyzing other people's pants and trying to figure out where they need alterations.- No gimmicks. The crotch is the hardest part of pants to fit. Pati and Maria have a section covering the various techniques they've tried to perfect c [...]


    2. OMG! This book changed my life. The techniques described will allow even a novice sew-er to make perfect fitting pants. I even used the techniques to alter skirts. I highly recommend to anyone who makes their own clothes.


    3. This is another must-have book on your sewing reference shelf. Fitting trousers is challenging and perfecting fit is even more challenging. Pants for Real People is full of fitting information for people of all shapes and sizes.


    4. An extremely thorough reference book. Detailed fitting instructions, include how to identify problems with fitting (i.e. what they look like). I bought it after reading a library copy so I could always have it on hand.


    5. Useful book for learning how to alter pant patterns to sew pants that fit your body shape.For a book that cover other types of clothing patterns see The Perfect Fit (Singer Sewing Reference Library).


    6. I think it was this pants book had a really helpful diagram for drafting a curved waistband. I didn't end up needing it, but it was good reference.
