protea

(no subject)

bblum was at my house the other day, and asked a question about a sewing project I was working on. I said "It's a dart. It's a way of controlling fullness. Wait, that's jargony and not helpful to you..." and then explained in a (hopefully) more enlightening way. But it occurred to me last night that the fuller explanation is not actually that complicated, and some of you might enjoy it. So here's a little jcreed-style writeup about 'controlling fullness' and what that means in sewing. (With crappy ballpoint pen pictures!)Collapse )
