Darts - The Bane Of My Life


Why am I never able to sew bodice darts without it ending up looking as though I have cone-shaped breasts!

I'm giving in for the night.

Hopefully tomorrow night will bring me some dart success (once I've taken the seam ripper to the bodice for the 4th time!)

  1. I have the same struggles with darts. For me, the problem was the darts were placed too high. They should go to the middle of the breast. Also, the dart needs to taper off to nothing at the point, if there is too much of a sudden point then it can make a weird shape. One last thing, try making the darts a bit shorter, so they don't meet to a point. I have had luck with that. Good luck.
