Everyone knows that you want to show a little more skin during the summer...but there's a limit when it comes to arm holes. I have so many tank tops that show right to my bra, but I keep them in my closet because of how adorable their fronts are. Can't believe I could have been wearing them all this time with one simple fix!

I know this has happened to just about every seamstress at least once before when you finish your garment and the armholes are to big and you can see everything and you do not want to start your garment all over. Well this tutorial is a great way to fix this by putting in a side dart. Nice tutorial and pictures help a lot to walk you through this. I think these darts actually give the garment a more finished look. Anyone agree?
