Finishing the raw edges of darts?
I’m making a shirt and it has darts on the front, and some on the back. I’m self-taught, been sewing for a few years, I wouldn’t call myself a beginner, but I also wouldn’t say I’m so very experienced, I basically teach myself what I need when I come upon the need to learn it, but I’ve pretty much stayed away from darts till now, so I’m very new to darts, and I can’t find any information on how to edge finish them. The pattern wants me to cut them and press them open. I’ve done that but now I’m worried it will fray, especially while it’s in the washing machine. How should I finish the raw edges? Overcast by hand? I have a serger but I don’t think I could get to the point very well without distorting it. I don’t have pinking sheers. I think binding them would make it too bulky. The fabric doesn’t seem like it’ll fray much. Unfortunately I forgot to see what kind of fabric it is, I found it in the clearance and liked the pattern and feel of it so much I rushed right up to buy it without looking and when I went back later they were out of what I’d gotten. But it seems fairly durable. I prewashed it in cold on regular and it was fine in the dryer. It’s fairly light. But the shirt isn’t very form-fitting, I prefer my clothes a bit loose and not snug so I made sure it was going to be that way so a little extra bulk on the darts wouldn’t really bother me. Anyone have know how to do this? Usually google gives me what I need, but this time it failed, so I turn to you guys.
