I posted this How to a long time ago. But some of you could not see it because of not having Flash. So I am posting it again.

It is an easy and accurate method to transfer the darts/pleats. Preparation is a little time consuming but using the pattern becomes so much easier.

Technique Materials

1. Pattern pieces with darts/ pleats

2. Fusible interfacing (light weight). Sometimes the remnants work too.

3. Pattern tracer with prongs or unthreaded sewing machine.

4. Chalk/nutmeg powder

5.Craft Knife

6. Self healing mat

7. Iron

8. Sharp pencil/ permanent marker/ Non bleeding gel pen

    I am feeling a little dense here; I don’t get it. I have kind of done something like this to transfer pattern marks (pin holes in the pattern through which I make dots with marker), but I don’t get why you should interface it or cut it away or make pin hole dashes and transfer to the right side when you only need dart markings on the wrong side. Right? What am I missing??? I am really curious. Could someone help me out?

    Oh… This is GREAT!!! I love your idea. I was a little confused at first but when I wrapped my brain around what you were saying, it makes perfect sense and I can’t wait to use your technique. Thank you for posting!
