Measure the DART width, as determined in Step 20, from point R along the line connecting points D and O (this line may be oblique for some) and mark the point (point W). Now draw a line from point R down to the bust point (BP), and from the bust point (BP) up to point W. These form the sides of the bust dart.

    I still don’t understand the DART calculation…. at all. Can anyone explain it with examples?

    Thankyou very much this is a huge help. I have now nearly finnished my bodice block and can’t wait to start making my own designs instead of someone elses.

    When you use your DART measurment this time does it have to be halved like last time?

      No… if you think about it, the DART measurements was halved because we were trying to place the Bust Point correctly, and the bust point is located halfway across the dart. At the top of the dart, we need to allocate the full width of the dart.
