So that the side seam of the pants pattern doesn't become too overly curved going into your waist point, I've recently released a new video called 'How to Add a Dart to the Pants Waist Edge'.
It's a very simple process, and if Blogger cooperates, you should be able to click on the video below and watch this short instructional video.
The second dart is generally place about mid-way between the first dart and the side seam, and it's generally shorter. Of course this is variable and it can be placed where you most need it to accommodate your curves.
This process is easy to do and works quite well for the distinctive curvatures that many hearts and diamonds have.
