METHOD 2: After fusing the darts or pleats, instead of cutting them, I pierce them with a blunt heavy needle (either by machine or hand) especially at the one inch marks, making the holes bigger or turning the points into dashes.

For lighter fabrics I use nutmeg powder tied in a fabric pouch from which it can pass through. For darker fabrics I use the ordinary chalk powder which is used for quilt marking.
