    Putting the call out to you clever ladies that alter patterns. How would I do this?

    Thank you!

    Very interesting! do you want to add extra all the way down or just have the gathers there without adding extra fullness at the sides? I think I know how I would do it but i think it’ll be better in pictures.

    I think you would add width for gathering to the pattern at the bottom half of the dart, extending to the hem. Then before sewing the dart, run your gathering stitches, then cut on the center line, leaving a good bit uncut at the point of the dart. Gather to fit, press, sew dart.

    That’s how I’d try it– what a lovely detail!!

    I’d do exactly what mkhs suggested. It is lovely.

    I am no expert but this is what I would do: photo attached. Solid is cutting line. Dotted is seeing line. Gather between the dots.

    I think the challenge lies in getting the finished dart to have the same dimensions/fit as the original.
    You’d need to cut and spread the pattern before cutting out the fabric in order to add the seam allowance. That way once you’ve sewn the gathered dart it hopefully ends up the original shape.
    Take pictures of what you do, I’ll be curious to see it!

    Thanks Ladies!
    I will have a play after Christmas.
    I pretty much live in linen tunics but I don’t like ‘tent-like’ tops. Too dangerous cooking if nothing else.
    I liked the way it gave fullness from the bust down.

    Nicole, I found this tutorial on this type of slash dart. The tutorial is about halfway down the post.
