Hi--I tried to order the Pattern Fitting with Confidence DVD by Nancy Zieman from my dealer but found out it was discontinued. I looked in the message board and found one question about the same thing from 2009--about any good fitting dvds. Does anyone know of any good videos since the last post in 2009? Thanks so much!

I don't imagine this was quite what you're looking for, but I ordered it used for $2 from Amazon.com (I have free shipping there) and it's got a great article on fitting yourself by yourself

I like Peggy Sagers at Silhouette Patterns. She has a lot of fitting DVDs for sale.

Silhouette also has a lot of free video webcasts. A number of these are on fitting.

Nancy's notions is showing the DVD available with the book as a package. I use Cynthia Guffey fitting series,but it is a little pricy. I also have Peggy Sagers DVDs.

I can't recommend highly enough the DVD series by Threads. They feature specific areas (darts, bodice, etc.) and then they've done a 4-part series with Louise Cutting on how to adjust patterns for specific body issues. They are not cheap but they are timeless and well worth it IMO.

I second that ... If you have an " Insider " membership you can also watch them on their website. They are great. It is a series of four: arms, torso, waist/hips and bust. Here is the link for the box set.

The Insider membership was only $12.50 (since I'm a print subscriber) and let me tell you, I've totally gotten my money's worth out of that!! I noticed that DVD 4 was up there actually before it was released in stores. I love that I can search for a specific problem, and find the actual video segment.

Courtney, I whole heartly agree with you. The $12.50 I spent was well worth it just for the DVD's . I have been thinking about getting the Louise Cutting DVD's just so I can have them at home but it seems like a waist of money as long as I can view then on the Threads web site. Not sure why I think I should buy them?

I also have a number of Peggy Sagers DVD's on fitting and think they are worth the money. She has specials on the DVD's all the time.
