The fully lined bodice is my jam. There aren’t many things more satisfying than that lovely look of a lined, sleeveless bodice. Two of my favorite patterns to use this method are the Women’s Sydney Peplum and Dress as well as the Girls’ Sydney Peplum and Dress.

This is no doubt a dumb question by a sewing novice – but how is this different than just sewing the armholes up with right sides together? It seems like that is what is really happening, as ultimately the right sides are together when you sew. Why not just lay the right sides together and stitch them up without the roll part?

Suggest you try it, then you’ll see why you need the burrito method! However, if you have a bodice with a back opening,, and provided the shoulder straps are wide enough, it’s possible to just put them right sides together, sew the neckline and armholes, and turn out through one of the shoulders.
