How to Create a Balanced Dart
|Start sewing about 1-in. inside one of the points. Stitch through the point and off onto the bias strip beneath.|
|Stitch the remaining section of the dart, by overlapping your stitching, continue to sew to the remaining point and off onto the fabric beneath.
At the ironing board, fold the fabric in half and press away from the dart.
|Cut away the bulk of the strip up to about 1/8-in. to 1/4-in. away from the fold along the entire length of the fold.|
