Darts too obvious

Issue: Although I'm careful when pressing the clips so that they don't form indentations on the right side of the fabric, sometimes they are still too obvious by my standards. What can I do to correct this problem?

Solution: Now here's an idea I've never heard before! For a dart that is too visible, try adding a layer of fabric to mimic a dart on the opposite side.

Carefully mark or sew your dart.

After marking or sewing the dart, add a bias strip behind it. The strip should be the same width and height as the dart, or slightly larger. Sew the dart and grab the bias strip.

Bias taken in the seam of the darts

Push the clip back on one side and the bias on the other. There will be two layers of fabric on either side of the clip, making it less visible. Cut the bias strip so that it fits the shape of the clip.

Clip the dart if necessary to press.
