Transferring Darts from Pattern to Fabric

Today I'd like to share a tip I use for transferring darts on patterns to fabric.  Some of you may use this already or have other ways to do this.  If you do, please let me know.

I use mainly patterns traced from the spaghetti lines of Burda or Patrones and show an example here of a bodice dart.  It's pretty self-explanatory!

With the pattern laid on the cloth start from the bottom and mark where your dart is to be in tailor's chalk.

Slowly fold up the paper pattern, corresponding the lines of the dart with the chalk as you fold further up until you get to the top.

Voila!  It saves using a tracing wheel, and is just my particular preference.
