Subject: Dart Locations -

I am noticing a new trend in the bust dart location from some of the bigger name dressmakers. Instead of having the dart go from the side seam under the arm toward the center bust, it is running from the lower armscye across. Along with this change I am seeing wider cut shoulders and more fitted sleeves. These are all design choices but the bust darts aren't always pointing to the correct area and it makes it hard to alter. Thoughts?!?

it's poor pattern making. pure and simple (NT)looks badTuesday, February 02, 08:49:57pm

I am trying decide if it helps with fit when you want to have a narrower sleeve head. Also, considering this sport showcases the wearer;s shoulders being "back" maybe it makes sense? (NT)MeWednesday, February 03, 07:41:41pm

Interesting. I just had a dancer who brought her school costume made by a local dressmaker. The darts were as you describe. I thought it was because of the dancer's shape, but maybe this is something (NT)new in dressmaking? She is a young dressmaker.Friday, February 05, 05:20:29am
