 Changing Darts and Seams
Change the Location of Darts and Seams

Once the sloper is finished, the next step is to experiment with changing the location of the darts and seams without changing the basic fit of the apron. You can also change darts seams without changing the fit.

The techniques of changing the pattern are so easy to follow you can use them to learn and practice basic sewing skills. This is the process Umma Haleema followed as you can see from her work below.
