Dart manipulation ideas

It must be in the air: shortly after my last posts on dart manipulation The Cutting Class blog wrote a post Bust shaping with panel lines by Dior. Lots of dart manipulation ideas!

Bust Shaping with Panel Lines at Dior | The Cutting Class. Christian Dior, SS15, Haute Couture, Paris.

Once you look for it you come across more ideas. Marfy patterns/catalogues are a source of inspiration too.

It’s nice to think about how to draft these patterns. I will not do them all but my version of the yellow Marfy dress is almost ready in a denim blue. Will show you later this weekend.

  1. Dart manipulation is fun. I've been playing with it as well, so far only on paper.

  2. Once you have some knowledge it is easier to see how it has been done. Looking forward to seeing what you have come up with.

  3. My pattern making teacher told me that there are three rules of pattern making - dart manipulation, dart manipulation and dart manipulation! Good luck with your endeavours.
