Subject: How do you finish round sleeveless yokes? Date: 7/28/13 4:54 PM

The standard instructions for a sleeveless yoke dress is turn the sewn neck facing inside and stitch the bottom to the dress from the outside, then fold in the outside shoulder seams, which are hard to get neat.
I have seen better alternatives to enclose all raw edges, where?

www.shwinandshwin.blogpspot.com has the cute "Blackbird Tunic" Tutorial (2011) with piping, but still leaves the dress bottom gathered with raw edges inside.

Pam Howard does the "yoke trick" in her Craftsy shirt class. I learned much from her.

Burrito yoke method

It's also on PR, but you'll need to be a FoPR to access it, I think.

Oops, didn't mean men's-type shirt yokes in the Title.

See S3810 for instance.

If you have Kwik Sew "Beautiful Lingerie" book, it descries the yoke finish for the sleeveless double yoke nightdress. I was surprised how easy it was and such a neat finish. maybe your library has a copy.
