BurdaStyle’s Eva jacket has this interesting bust dart that is really simple to do in two steps.
I do trace the lines on the wrong side of my fabric with a special pencil…no time to make marks by hand…
A little tip before you begin: you can iron on a small square of fusible interfacing on the intersection of the darts. This way you do not have to worry about the fabric threads jumping out of the seam when you notch the allowances of the smaller dart.
I’m going to cite BurdaStyle’s instructions and associate pictures of the process. Here we go:
At the front pieces, the darts in the center between the marked lines have to be cut in up to 1 inch (2 cm) before the pointy end. Notice that I did cut too deep and this gave me a little headache. Do not cut all the way!
P.S. you guessed it!
I’m sewing another Eva again like I promised.
It is almost ready so a new post coming soon!
It has a cute matching skirt, you’ll see!
