Tutorial: How to sew a fully lined sleeveless bodice: Burrito method
Sewing a fully lined sleeveless bodice around the armholes with a Burrito method is super easy and the results are just amazing in the end. Don’t forget the professional look you get! I really love to use this method a lot and sometimes i must confess I tried to find reasons to use just this method. So let me tell you how:
What you need:
– You will need your bodice and lining pieces cut
– Sewing machine
This tutorial is based on our new release Lilah Top & dress pattern. You will follow the instructions until you reach Step 9 of the pattern tutorial. In the pattern tutorial you have illustrations but if you prefer step by step photos tutorial you are in the right place.
Sewing Armholes with Burrito Method:
-First you will lay the main bodice front and main bodice back right side up. Your right side of the lining will be facing down. Here is the photo.
– Next, you will roll one side of the main bodice/lining towards the middle.
– Next, we are going to make a sandwich. Flip the main bodice to the right, do not touch the lining yet.
– Then pull the lining from underneath to the right. Your main bodice and your lining will now be right sides together sandwiching the roll you made previously. Then you will align the armholes, making sure that the shoulder seams are perfectly matched. Pin and sew. Be careful when you sew around the back curve armhole. Go slowly and follow the notch provided in the pattern piece when you reach the racer back curve.
Here is the closer look of the sewn armhole.
You did it! Now repeat these steps with the other armhole. Don’t forget to press well when you’re done.
