Video: How to Mark a Dart for Accuracy and Quality with Any Sewing Project

Learn how to mark a dart three different ways.

Victoria North and Judith Neukam

In this chapter from the Teach Yourself to Sew series, expert Judith Neukam explains what a dart is and demonstrates how to mark dart locations on your fabric. She takes you through three methods: tracing; sewing tailor’s tacks; and clipping and pinning. With these methods, you’ll be able to transfer darts accurately from the pattern to any type of fabric.

The Teach Yourself to Sew series is for beginning sewers or anyone who wants to brush up on their skills. We demonstrate basic sewing techniques, share tips, and give step-by-step instruction for beginner sewing projects.

    These video clips are a great aid. The tips and camera angles for the sewing are very good. They are clear and concise. I wish that they had been around when I first started sewing. They would have saved me a lot of frustration and time. Now I can learn better techniques for doing what I thought I knew how to do. Thank you for making such great videos and making them available to new sewers and retreads like me.

    I LOVE THIS WOMAN! I am a self taught sewer and things along the way would have been so much easier if I had had such a fine teacher. I will continue to stayed tuned. Thank you again and again.
