Clear photographs, and good instructions on how to determine what your figure flaws are. Many alteration books tell how to alter patterns, but few have this information on assessing one's own flaws, in order to choose the right alteration. Recommended.

This book told all about how to alter patterns for clothes to fit various ways in which a body might not be "standard." It contained lots of pictures and detailed instructions for altering the patterns. It'll be very helpful whenever I re-learn how to sew!

Similar techniques to FFRP, but enough differences to make this a worthwhile purchase. Assumes a little bit of background knowledge, so there's less handholding than FFRP.
