I need someone who has read “Sewing Secrets from the Fashion Industry” edited by Susan Huxley. On page 195, the book describes a technique of sewing a blouse yoke that attaches to the fronts and back and encases all seams and involves no hand stitching. It’s different from the “pull-through” treatment I’m used to because the collar attachment seam is also involved. The photographs in the book really don’t help me because the blouse illustrated is fushia and it’s hard to identify the pieces and see what’s being done. I tried the technique with muslin and scrap fabric, but I had to rip it out and start again several times. How frustrating!!! I’m just not getting it!
If anyone is familiar with this technique and knows of another book or pattern where it is described, I would love to know about it. I hope someone can help, because I make quite a few blouse with yokes and collars.
I sew, therefore I am
