    I thought some of you might be interested in reading this…

    Oohhh. What a nice finish. I’ll have to do some testing on my toddler’s Jump Rope Dress (about to get underway!) to see how bulky it would be in those teeny tiny armholes, but it looks perfect for side/sleeve-seam-last construction.

    This was really interesting and I’m keen to give it a go.

    But my question for you more experience sewers is: would this method of finishing off the sleeve seam create too much bulk when sewing up the side seam and sleeve seam in one go (as you do with the sketchbook, music class and jump rope patterns).

    Am I making sense? I usually clip or trim under the arm so it sits nicely, but i don’t think I’d be able to do that using this method.

    This is awesome! A beautiful finish. I definitely needed reminding about this! Will try soon.

    Claireabel, I enclosed the armscye seams on Play Date with bias strips made from the same fabric as the ‘bib’ and there isn’t too much bulk. I did it after I sewed everything in one go… Not sure about the answer to your question about how felled finish will behave until I try it… might do a ‘muslin’ version first, just to see.

    xoxo, Nancy
