The easy method involves a pair of snippers and a tailor's chalk or pencil. This can be used to mark the notches, darts, tucks, pleats, fold lines, center front, and center back.

Snip about 1/4" (0.6 cm) into the seam allowance along the marking. Illustrated above, you can see how you would mark a straight tapered dart.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
