So if I'm reading this right...you're taking 1" on each side, for a total reduction of two inches, right?
Would you say this was near the maximum size for darts?
So if I wanted to take in more than two inches, should take the shirt in from the side seams?[/quote] Quote
But doesn't this method leave a piece of folded fabric in the back (on each side) to flap around?[/quote] Yes, it does leave a fold of fabric on the inside. Because of the curve created by the darts, the flap will lay down flat in whichever direction you iron it. Iron toward the side seams and you'll never notice the flap.
Where do I send my bill?
