Principle #1: A dart can be transferred to any location around the pattern's outline from a designated pivot point without affecting the size or fit of the garment.

I didn't have time to do any real sewing this weekend, but I did enjoy some quality time studying Helen Joseph-Armstrong's book "Patternmaking for Fashion Design." I love looking at the pictures that show the relationship between the flat pattern piece and the garment.
So, I thought you might enjoy it too and am including this page on skirt darts. Aren't they cool? I'm not sure that I'd ever wear one from the bottom row, but I really like seeing how they are created. :)
I hope you all had wonderful weekends and feel at least semi-ready for the start of a new work week! If you haven't already, don't forget to sign up for my 600th post give-away. :)
