Darts can be made in the usual way on your

sewing machine. That is, you begin stitching
at the wide end of the dart, stitch to the point,
and then fasten the two thread ends.

However, thanks to the push-button bobbin,

you can avoid the problem of fastening the
thread ends by making a “continuous-thread”

dart and stitching in the opposite direction.

This method is particularly useful for darts in
sheer fabrics, where transparency requires a

neat, clean finish. It is also useful for darts
made on the right side of a garment as a style


Regular Darts

• stitch: Straight |

• Stitch Width:

• Needle Position:

• Stitch Length: About 12 or to suit fabric

2. Stitch beyond the fabric to form a thread

chain I


to inch long.

3. Clip thread ends about 2 inches from dart

point and tie the ends into a single knot
close to the stitching.

Continuous-thread Darts


. Set the machine as for regular darts.

2. Wind an empty bobbin with a small amount

of thread to make a single dart. (To hasten

separation of starting thread end from the
winding bobbin, pull thread end gently after
winding has started.)

3. Close slide plate, and position the needle

in the very edge of the fold, at the point of
basted or pinned dart. Lower presser foot.

4. Stitch carefully from the point to the wide

end of the dart at the seam edge.

Remove excess thread from bobbin and re­

wind for each dart.
