Darts provide fit and contoru in a garmetit and

sliould bo accurately stitdied.

A straight stitch dart (AK 3) is usually formed

by stitching from the seam edge, tapering gradually
to the point, where the last 3 or 4 stitdies parallel

the fold. Stitch beyond the fabric to form a thread
chain Vr to V< inch in length. Tic the thread ends
into a single knot close to the stitdiing.


Darts add styling and interest when stitched with

the fold to the outside of ganneut. Thread ends

at tire point of the dart are ediminated when the

single thread principle is employed.

Unthread the needle. Use the thread leading off

the bobbin and rethread the needle from back

to front. Tie. bobbin anct upper threacLs together.

Draw bobbin up through, threading points,

winding enough on the spool to complete a single

dart. I.osver the needle into the very edge of the

fold at thei point of tlie dart. Take any slack out of

the Ihrcacl by turning the spool. Lower the presser

foot and stitch carcfulfy toward the seam edge.

This method is also ideal for inside darts in sheer

fabrics as thread ends are eliminated at the point

of the dart.



Non-woven iiiterfacings c:an be shaped without

bulk v/ith '/.igzag stitching. Selector setting M. or
BQ may be us<;d.

Cut out the dart allowance on the stitdiing lino

and bring the raw edges together. Pin, over a
muslin stay, and stitch. Back stitch at both ends.
