In the above diagram you can see coloured markings, these are called darts. You sew darts to get the desirable shape of the body. Darts are mostly used in women’s breast part to get the exact shape.

  1. In the above diagram A is the cloth where we gonna stitch dart. Fold the cloth at the point E (like closing a note).
  2. Next the cloth will look like the diagram B , now see the line CO , that’s the line where you have to put stitches. That’s it . This is called dart. By stitching the CO line you are hiding a small part of cloth so that a U shape can be formed.
  3. Next unfold the cloth , now you can see a U shape where you can fit your breast exactly.

Darts can be stitched in the armhole , opposite to the shoulder. If you don’t stitch darts then you cannot get the cone or U shape to fit your breast.

In the blouse below the cone shape is formed using darts.
