To mark the dart apex, push an awl or a pin through the pattern and all layers of the fabric. Unpin the edges, and fold back the pattern until the point where you have pinned. Mark the apex with tailors chalk or a pencil on the wrong side of the fabric.

For fisheye darts (usually in torso blocks, dresses, and jackets), do not make any snips. Use this method for making all of the markings.
