Darts are used on garments that are tailored to fit the wearers shape. They make a flat fabric three-dimensional. To create a double-point dart the fabric is gathered on the inside of the garment, sewn together from one point to another point within the fabric creating a diamond shape. Double-point darts are most commonly used on the waist of women’s dresses shaping the fabric to the body.
