    Has anyone tried this? I’m thinking of trying it but not quite decided on how to finish the armholes.

    You could overlock,turn and topstitch,Or make a narrow band(ribbing) or bind it with the same fabric?

    Good luck Sandi.xn

    I’ll put in a vote for same fabric ribbing. However, I would cut a little out of the armhole to make room for the ribbing. The amount would depend on how wide your ribbing would be. If you don’t make it larger, you’ll end up with some very boxy looking shoulders.

    Do try it, Sandi, and show us how it’s done!

    I’ll vote for same fabric ribbing as well. 🙂

    I would also consider raising the armscye a wee bit. When converting a sleeved pattern to a sleeveless, you usually raise the underarm since there will be no sleeve and this will lessen the gaping under the arm.

    Carol, in this case, I wouldn’t raise the bottom of the arm hole. Since this pattern is very narrow through the underarms, it shouldn’t need it at all.

    Thanks Johanna, I have not used this pattern so I have not studied the pattern pieces. It’s on my list to work on this summer. Thanks for the information. 🙂
