Hey ya'll

   I've got out my Ho'made dummy and I've got the front of my Kara Thrace costume looking good but here's my question for the back. :
 I'll be putting in darts in the back, is there a 'rule' or thumb for where you place your darts? IE: they are always 2&1/2 inches from the spine on either side. -or- follow the edge your shoulder blade & there your dart shall be.
I know its not of the utmost importance for a halloween costume, but always good to have information for further endeavors.    Thanks for any help!!

Hmmm... I'd say back darts look right when they are directly under the point of the shoulder blade, so depending on the broadness of your back this could be 2 inches from the spine or 5.
