Have you ever wondered how to get that finished look on a sleeveless garment?
It’s pretty simple in theory, but difficult to explain without a video step by step, so we will provide both.
You will have the front and back bodice pieces and front and back facings. Important: You are literally trying to fit the entire bodice or dress through the strap, so you must make the strap wide enough to pull the bulk through. So make sure it’s wide enough and the fabric is not too heavy weight. Make sure you’ve stitched the shoulder seams all the way to the ends and consider back stitching a few stitches for added strength.

- Connect the lining and main fabric armholes, right sides together. Sew.
- Clip the sewing allowance to release tension.
