Hi, I'm Hesira, and I am very new to sewing. I was hoping I could
find an answer to this question.
I am making the dress from Simplicity Pattern #3835. There are 2
darts in the back. I cut out the opening for the darts on the pattern
and marked the back. I folded the fabric with right sides together,
marked the center and ends of the dart as instructed, and when I
looked at the pattern example, my actual fabric didn't look like the
example. The example looked curved in the middle, where mine looked
flat along the fold line. I've tried to figure this out, but I can't
tell if I'm supposed to sew a straight line with the fabric curving up
from it, or I'm supposed to sew a curved line, with the fold line
I'm so confused. I would be very grateful for any insight.
