Hey Ya'll I am trying to convert a old dust ruffle into a summery hippie apron shirt.
( here it is inside out) I'm using it as one continous piece, (not a front & a back piece, ya'?) I need two darts in the back & I can't really do side darts. So I'm thinking just a regular two pointed dart with a short end at the bottom, & a long up top, like a 1 to 3or4? am I making sense?
I know that there is OTHER darts out there than the pointed dart. Can anyone tell me them names or why they might be better? ( Is there a princess dart?) I've gone on ABOUT.com , but nothing has turned fruitful. Thanks!
edit : I tried double darts, but its still very loose. A single dart doesn't take in enough around the middle waist, and too much around the bust. Anyone know other Dart tactics or where I can find a pic of them? I'm thinking I might just pleat the back, but afraid of what it will look like. ie: pooffy butt. I have big boobs, slightly smaller tummy, and I want the top to go over my hips, ( which is the same size as my boobs!) Thanks again!
