@UttaRetch I got Sewdirect's email about this today and I have ordered it. I'll let you know if it looks any good.

I suspect this is just a re-launch of the leaflets they have been selling for ages.  If so, I bought them a few years ago and didn`t find them very helpful.  They point out what sort of alterations might be needed but the instructions about how to do the alterations aren`t detailed enough (well, they weren`t for me anyway!)

I`ll be interested to know what anyone else thinks of them

Mine has arrived. Not quite what I wanted it to be - it doesn't show you how to make a block to your own measurements. It's along the lines of how to alter the basic pattern if you've got sloping shoulders or a hollow back or other defects! Probably quite useful though and a reasonable price.

Thanks.  I might give it a go.
