May 09, 2017

I've got a new episode of Pattern Fundamentals for you!

In this week's video, I'm finishing the pattern work we started last week and giving you some inside information about darts. I'll show you how to true darts and determine their dart roof, what direction to press the dart volume and why you might want to break the general rule. I'm also going to show you how you can manage large dart volumes for a smoother fit

Watch now so you can put it all into action today!
