I am reading this book at the same time I am working through creating a pant pattern by drafting. The combination of the two is excellent. I have ordered this book for my home library.
My only criticism is that the author does not seem to understand personal style. She created pants for herself that do not suit her short stature. However, they are beautifully made.
