The “Burrito Method” explained

Sleeveless tops, tanks and dresses are the unsung heroes of our wardrobes, offering endless versatility all year round. These garments not only show off our arms during the warmer months, but also provide the perfect base for layering in colder weather. When it comes to sewing sleeveless patterns, you have a variety of techniques to choose from, but one method stands out as a favorite among sewing enthusiasts: the burrito method.

What is the Burrito Method?

The burrito method is a sewing technique that involves enclosing a seam within the layers of fabric, allowing you to sew without the seam or stitches showing on the right side of the garment. This is a clever way to finish the armholes of sleeveless clothing seamlessly. The beauty of this method lies in its simplicity and the clean, polished look it achieves. The burrito method ensures that seams and stitching remain hidden on the reverse side of the garment, giving a polished, professional finish to the exterior.

You may already be familiar with this technique if you've ever sewn a gusset onto underwear. It's a bit of a mind-blowing process, difficult to accurately describe in words, but incredibly effective once you get the hang of it. If you're a visual learner like me, seeing the process in action is incredibly helpful.

Prepare the perfect burrito

I created this technique video, which provides a step-by-step visual demonstration of using the burrito method to sew sleeveless items. Watch as I break down the technique into easy-to-follow steps, making it accessible to seamstresses of all levels.

OUR Black Forest Bodysuit is a great project for this technique because it is fully lined. Although it's not sleeveless, the principles of the technique are the same (and you could definitely make it sleeveless!).
