I would like to buy a book on fitting. I especially need help with my 7 yr old daughters forward sloping shoulders/narrow chest. I'm trying to sew a basic dress with flat, fitted sleeves at the shoulder, not dropped. (I get bodices that want to pull from the underarm to center neck.) Could some one recommend a book or two that you think would be most likely to help me? Thankyou!

Fit For Real People is very good. I'm also looking into purchasing The Complete Photo Guide To Perfect Fitting, by Sarah Veblen.

I have a lot of fitting books and my favorite is probably the recently released Photo Guide to Fitting by Veblen. I think that the photos really make a big difference in understanding how to read the problem. I do feel that no one fitting book handles everything and I'd also get the Palmer pletsch book as well.

I'm fond of Sandra Betzina's book Fast Fit. Mainly because I can flip to a certain problem and find a solution easily.
