I love french darts. I think they are so flattering and add some visual interest beyond the standard side dart we see in most blouses. But I know the French darts can be a little intimidating as the construction is slightly different than your standard dart – and includes cutting. Does anyone else get a little nervous about cutting sometimes? It has a feeling of permanency to it – like if you make a mistake you can’t come back from it.
But honesty – it’s not as scary as all that. I promise. After this tutorial you should feel super confident to tackle your own french darts, like those in my Dove blouse sewing pattern.
