Garment fitting, seam allowance, fabric requirement

Fit refers to how well a garment conforms to the three-dimensional human body. A good fit is crucial to one’s satisfaction. However, it is often easier to find clothes in the right colors, prices, and styles that one likes than a well-fitted garment. The effect of a stunning design, gorgeous fabric, and exquisite workmanship is destroyed if the finished garment doesn’t fit well with the intended wearer. The topic also explains dart manipulation and seam line grading (grading for enlargement of garment size).
