How do you sew back darts in a dress?

Do you put darts in lining?

Darts are inserted when dresses or tops are too big at the front or back anywhere from the bust to the hip area, and also if the dress or top is sleeveless and darts are required at the front armhole section to the bust. … Place pins through the centre of the dart making sure to catch the lining as well.

How do I make my bust darts less pointy?

When you reach the dart tip (the pin), sew off the edge of the fabric. The short stitches won’t unravel and replace the need to backtack or tie the ends together. The trick of sewing along the fold of the fabric for a few stitches helps to get a nice smooth finish and avoids a pointy Madonna vibe to your darts.
