Video tutorial: Clean finish lined bodice with no hand sewingBelieve it or not, you can create a lined sleeveless bodice with no raw edges and a clean finish on the neck and arm holes, without having to resort to any hand sewing.  Colette Patterns shares a video tutorial on their blog, the Coletterie, showing how.  It’s actually a fairly easy technique though it’s complicated to show in photos.  They include a video with the tutorial because, though it’s a fairly easy technique, it’s difficult to show in still photos.  This is the technique I used when creating a lined sleeveless bodice, though I generally add a few notches so I can be sure that everything is lining up correctly as I sew. Go to The Coletterie for the tutorial.
