Back Dart

Hi Suzy. My dart width is 3/8" therefore do I omit the back dart because of the back seam 3/8" we drew in to prevent the trampoline effect you mentioned.? I'm finding it easier to work in both metric and imperial to obtain more accurate measurements. The fractions are doing my head in.

Great class

I had attempted to make clothes in the past with less than desirable results. Lets say very poor results. I don't think I ever wore one item I ever made.

Exceptional classes. Extremely satisfied

Do you slash and spread the skirt and taper to the side seam line? Check your calcalations many times and measure your pattern and then add them up to make sure that it equals your starting measurements. A good starting place to learn patten cutting.
