Just do it right: Tracing Darts


Often, I’m tempted to speed past the initial steps of seeing because I’m anxious to get to the more exciting parts, like trying on a finished garment.

I’m particularly lazy when it comes to darts, even though they are the curvaceous girl’s best friend. More often than not, I just snip to mark the legs of the dart, sick a pin in the tip, and eyeball it at the sewing machine. The results can be less than perfect.

So here’s me telling myself to do it right. It’s not like getting out a tracing wheel and paper takes any longer than snipping and pinning. And the results are far superior. Straight lines. Darts of equal length. Just do it right. Trace your darts.
