"In this tutorial, I will focus on dart manipulation and how you can use the slash & spread or pivot method to transfer darts to the bust, neck, armhole or anywhere you want! Dart manipulation is one of the most important techniques when it comes to pattern drafting. The shape and fit of garments depend on darts and while they are needed to help garments stay in shape, they can also be used as a design element so knowing how to move darts will be beneficial."
