To review darts, the greater the difference in measurements, the more darts are needed for a smooth transition.

Also, the greater the difference the longer the darts need to be.

Think about how each of these darts would press in a garment.

Good visual! The short dart would make a more prominent point than the longer darts.

The fullnest will be released at different lengths. If you were using the darts at the waistline you would used the dart that would release the fullnest at the widest point of the hip.

The short one I would use at the armhole, the medium one a regular bustline dart and the long one a french dart.

Dart length at the waistline depends on the shape of your bum.  I'll look for some pictures that might help show this. 

Here is a link to pictures Kirsten posted.  She uses a long dart for a smooth fit.  If you have more curve higher, you would want shorter darts.

She also uses long darts in front because of her flat tummy.  A less flat tummy would need shorter darts.

Karen, I was trying to divide my side dart into 2 darts in pe as a practice. where do I look fo some instructions on how to do this. That brings up another question, if I divide the dart do I change the length of the 2 darts. We are talking about a DD cup size on a 5'2 frame with a thick waist. (Definitely wont need long darts for a flat tummy) I watched the movie. Should both of the darts just sit side by side??

I think if I wanted the divide the side bust dart, I would move part to the armhole or angle part up like a french dart.

I often divide the side bust dart in to two. I'm a DD cup on a small frame. I have posted directions in my album if you would like to see them. The directions can be found in any drafting book. Armstrong's directions are good. And you might also check the Wild Ginger CAD book.

This example uses the french dart to begin but the regular side dart will do as well. Large darts divided into multiples are also a vintage fashion element and work well for more subtle fitting.

Thank you Coopie. I hope to incorporate this into a vintage MOG dress for June. Will spreading the large dart over 2 darts give me a more smoothe curved shape. I need the illusion of a curvey body
