    Not a term I have heard. Do you have a picture?

    I have never heard of that term either. I know that in Dutch we call a French seam an English seam. If your pattern instructions are not in English, or poorly translated to English from another language that can be the problem with finding it online. Other than getting results about darts as a sport in google ;) Is it possible you’re looking for instructions on a French dart? I found a link explaining that.

    I think that an English dart is just a side bust dart.

    Hope you are still looking, Lisa. It’s a compound dart. A side dart (usually slanted) ends at the bast of a short vertical dart that points upward to the bust. I don’t know much about it, but would like to find out more if anyone knows the technique for drafting them. I’ve seen it mentioned in Heather Claus’ “Sewing and Fitting with Darts.”
