1) Alexandra Morgan @In-House Patterns on YT:

She's a pattern drafter and a teacher and you can hear that in her voice;
I recently came across her video (swayback adjustment) and I really liked how she presented it: the very clean use of half-scale pattern and her cadence was pleasurable to listen to. I need to go back and watch more!

Along with what's already been mentioned, Fast Fit by Sandra Betzina is a super helpful fitting book. It's got clear illustrations and descriptions of fit problems, along with 2 ways to address each at the pattern level: one more thorough, the other a "fast fit".

Ok two visual ressources:

2) Nanna @HowToDoFashion patterns photo fitting guides

She's a pattern drafter and teacher. Her guides are based on her patterns and show you both photos and drawings so you can see how to do the alterations.

Hope this helps!

I'm very impressed with Alexandra Morgan.  I have been watching and reading her stuff for a while now but have several to catch up on.
Never heard of the other lady.  Something else to look at :)

I love Alexandra Morgan. I'm a member of her facebook group and she has been super helpful, to me and to everyone else!
I also like her teaching style.

I'd not come across Alexandra Morgan before but, having had a little look, I like what I've seen and have just clicked to join the facebook group too.

Thanks for the pointer Ohsewsimple.  :)
