Today I have a video that I hope will make your life a whole lot easier. I'm working on a sleeveless version of the Margo Blouse for the MarfyRemnantChallenge sew along hosted by SewToFit. It's been a fun project that I've made entirely of scraps from my scrap box.
I've made a few changes to the pattern to make if work for my scraps including splitting the front yoke and making it sleeveless. The video illustrates a technique that allows you to enclose the armhole seam without sewing. It's a fun and satisfying!
I will share more about the project soon!

This is total genius!! I love it and must have one of these. Love anything with a ruffle!! U explained it perfectly as always! Wish I could go home and sew right now. I'm currently working on my 4th Margo top. This is just the best pattern ever. Thank U for sharing another great tip with us. Virtual hug!! Susan

I'm so glad you like this. It's almost magical isn't it? To make it work you do have to have an opening in either the front or back yoke. I'll share the blouse soon with the split front. I'm so happy with it. Send photos of your Margos. Miss you!
