Many sewing patterns have darts that DON’T fit your bustline — the darts may be too high or too low, whereas the dart should point TO the bustline.
The “Darts That Fit and Flatter” pattern makeover class gives you step-by-step, illustrated instructions on how to move the existing dart on a store-bought pattern to the proper location, how to add a dart to a sewing pattern that doesn’t have one, how to create armhole darts, replace darts with gathers at the neckline, replace darts with gathers at the yoke, replace darts with fullness at the center front seam, and how to move the darts to a variety of other locations.
This Darts That Fit And Flatter Class comes in 2 size ranges that you can choose from — S-XL and 1X-5X. This one class will allow you to create an unlimited number of different designs from the patterns you already have in your collection!
All pattern making and pattern makeover classes were written by me. While my husband was stationed in Tainan, Taiwan in the military, I took pattern making classes at the Cheing Mei Pattern Making School. Five nights a week, while my husband took care of our 6 children, I attended the pattern making school, with the help of an interpreter. The pattern making course lasted a year, and I graduated alongside 30 Taiwanese students.
