Why sew Darts?

If you have a t-shirt that is too big, try sewing darts in the t-shirt, on the back and front for a better fit or just for a different look.

How to Sew a Dart in your Clothing

You make a dart by drawing a triangle with a fabric pencil on the wrong side of your clothing. Fold triangle and match ends. Pin at bottom point. Pin at the top making sure the ends match. Sew starting at the bottom and moving your way to your tapered end of the triangle. Don't forget to backstitch. **Watch the video below then find an old t-shirt and practice making darts.
