I am partially through the sleeveless blouse design and sew along, and already have learned several new techniques. Looking forward to making my own tank top.

Really well done. I do not wear sleeveless things as the word is a better place for not seeing my upper arms. However, I do use shells so I made a shell and I am very pleased. Because of my bust size the dart at the shoulder seam had quite a bit of excess fabric so I serged the dart to trim it. Also for beginners you might mention how to join the two ends of the piece of bias trim when doing the armhole or if you did not leave the 6 inch opening in center back. Thank you, Glenda - excellent as usual Marge Powell
