Are you looking for one on how to place darts in a pattern, or how to sew them once you already know where they're supposed to go?  I don't know of a tutorial, but knowing which might help others direct you.  Smiley

Bump!
Because I'd like to know how to place them in a pattern. I'm drafting my own pattern for a dress that has vertical darts for a C-cup.
thank you Smiley

Doesn't your draft tell you were to put the darts? You can actually put them anywhere as long as they point to the bust point.

I believe they should end about 1" before the bust point too.

when I say I'm drafting my own pattern I mean I'm making it all up myself, as in no pattern to work from

Is this Lago De Como in the background. I think I just love any picture with Lake Como in the background. It's just so pretty there. I can't handle the stairs though. Ouuffff

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

It's from Casino Royale, so I'm not quite sure where they filmed it, though I'm guessing somewhere in Europe lol

Well if you are making it up yourself then you just have to try it and make a mock up. Or start from a basic body block draft and go from there. Or if you have a dress form drape it.
