|I am making a dress with a number of double pointed darts, which means that the darts are in the middle of the piece of fabric. Since I use a rotary cutter, I'm not on a surface that I can stick pins into (which is a fairly easy way to mark the darts: stick pin in, lift up pattern piece & fabric pieces, mark).
AFTER I did all my darts, I had the idea to make a little dart template.
- w/ a piece of tracing paper, trace the dart & cut it out.
- mark the end points of the dart (put pin through - & hold it if you are on a hard surface & it won't stay on it's own; lift up paper & fabric; mark bottom piece; mark top piece)
- remove pattern piece, then place your template so it matches the end points you marked
- trace around the template for a complete dart marking
This is only worth doing for those darts that aren't at the edge of your fabric, or perhaps even the edge ones if they are curved. But if you have a TNT pattern with lots of darts, I think this will make it easier.
