Lovely shirt. Great review. There is a pillowcase tute that shows the technique used for this shirt's yoke (the pillowcase tute was how they added a contrasting band at the edge of the pillowcase). It is quite a slick process. The principle works for a yoke or for the pillowcase border:

Thank you all for the kind comments! Apparently many of you are well versed in the Burrito yoke method but inasmuch as I just returned to garment sewing last year after a long hiatus, it was news to me. Thanks again and happy sewing...

Great shirt. The long darts give a lovely flattering shape. The burrito method is so clever...I love the magic bit at the end when you pull it through to reveal a perfect yoke.

Very nice shirt! I call that yoke assembly the "Burrito Method".
