I'm about to cut out a T shirt for my niece using Patrones 303 - the plus size T.

It has a dart that is cut out - the cutting line notches deeply into the side front.

I've added seam allowances everywhere else - do I add them around the inside of the dart? Not sure if that makes sense!

In other words - there are no seam allowances anywhere on a European pattern right?

Yes, you need to add a small seam allowance. A quarter inch should be ok for a dart.

I don't understand what you mean by a cutting line - Patrones has no seam lines so all those lines are stitching lines. I think you may be over thinking this - you just stitch where the lines of the dart are, where you cut the fabric doesn't really matter that much unless your fabric is super thick. I usually just leave the "triangle" of fabric intact around the dart, and just cut it roughly in line with the side of the rest of the pattern piece.

Yup - my bad. I've got to get the words "cutting line" out of my head when working with Burda/Patrones.

Stitching line!!!

Thanks for the replies; I'll just leave that triangle inside the dart's stitching lines.

eta: I folded the pattern piece I had traced off and matched the stitching lines. Then it was easy to extend the cutting lines I had drawn so that the dart would look right when stitched closed.

It makes perfect sense now.
