|I am still a newbie to sewing, so what might seem simple to others, is a brain pain to me.
In order to help me line up my darts properly I use the following method:
* Using a quilt ruler & tailors chalk, I trace the pleat onto my fabric.
* I stick a pin through the end point of the pleat and then fold the fabric, matching the tailors chalk.
* Pin the pleat line
* Stitch pleat line leaving a long tail at the end to tie the knot.
* Press and voila.
