I recently got a designer's blouse block/sloper pattern from Fashion Patterns by Coni. The Guidelines booklet refers several times to a 'castle dart.' From the context, it seems to be similar to, or used instead of, a vertical fisheye dart. I have googled 'castle dart,' and have come up blank. Does anyone know what this is?

I've never heard of this term. Would be nice to know what it is though!

I was thikning it might be an "H" dart - but that's more the opposite of a vertical fisheye, not something you would use instead.

Let us know when you find out!

It looks like a diamond, or double dart. Here (see dart) is a graphic.
