we had an pattern cutting crash course the other day and in this lesson we were taught how to move darts and how to get rid of them entirely. We then were shown an alternative way of moving darts on a stand instead of on a flat pattern. I found working froma astand and tranlating it into a pattern a very useful alternative and I plan to carry on using this method.
once I made the dress block and closed the darts i drew my design on to the paper
After I drew it on I then had to cut each piece out and make it into a flat pattern
