To continue on from the first part of my dart manipulation tutorial, I show you how to turn a single dart into multiple darts.
Dart manipulation is one of the most important techniques when it comes to pattern drafting. The shape and fit of garments depend on darts and while they are needed to help garments stay in shape, they can also be used as a design element so knowing how to move darts will be beneficial.
I’ve used dart manipulation when making a lot of my dresses. For example, the gathers on the neckline of the night version of my mix and match dress came about through using dart manipulation techniques.
