First of all, I really should have used a wider piece of material to make this dart. As you can see, this type of dart will bring in the center of your material. So at least I illustrate that for you, hmmm.
DOUBLE FISHEYE DART
Begin, as with all darts, by transfering your dart markings from pattern to material.
since, again, I didn’t have a pattern, I made up my own dart.
Mark at center of dart and 1.8 inch from widest point of the dart. Also mark 1/2 inch from each end of dart
Fold fabric with right sides together along the center of the dart.
begin sewing at the top mark, following your stitchlines out to the wide center, then back down to the bottom mark
Clip fold at center of dart
Press on wrong side of the fabric, towards center, on tailor’s ham.
The Book says: ” A double fisheye dart is a double dart situated at the wiastline of a garment cut-in-one, such as a dress, vest or jacket.”
This was my first time making a Double Fisheye Dart, or even hearing about them. I can’t think of anything, offhand, I would use it for, but it’s actually a pretty cool technique for taking in fabric to make, what I would think would be, a really form fitting detail.
