Darts are practical elements of patternmaking that ensure a good fit. In this workshop, Liesl moves beyond the utilitarian and into the creative – showing you how to manipulate the placement of darts to customize your sewing. You’ll learn how to shift a typical bust dart to the neckline or waist, all without sacrificing fit. Along the way, Liesl provides tips for accurate marking and precise sewing. Once you learn the basics of dart manipulation, you’ll be able to sew more custom and creative garments.

— Sewing a perfect dart
