Hello,

I managed somehow to draw a fist dart on a waist of my first pattern (a skirt). But it was bit of a struggle and I am sure there is a faster, more precise way than how I did.

Let’s presume I have a waist line, I will just call its extreme points A and B. Somewhere on this line, between A and B, I have a point C (it doesn’t matter where exactly so far). Lets admit for this example, that my dart should be 3 cm wide and 12 cm long.

What is the best way to proceed…

- if I want to have the middle of my dart aligned with C?

and

- more tricky - at least to me!– if I want that the left “wing” (sorry, I guess this is not the perfect term for it, but English is not my mother tongue) to be on C, or said in other words, C is not marking the middle of the dart, but one of its side (n this example left).

I found some tutorial about rotating a dart, but it confused me a bit and I think I need to start with more basic help until I get the level for this next chapter

Thanks in advance for your help. Noukita
