Re: I struggle sewing arm holes. Is there a trick to it?

Thank you! This is a sleeveless dress and I guess I'm not 100% sure what binding is. The pattern said to fold 1/4" press, then fold another 1/4" press and sew BUT the big thing I missed which would have been a huge help (thank you for mentioning it Michelle!) was the notch marks - I saw them and didn't know what they were for because I'd done other patterns by this maker and none of them had notch marks. I meant to find out what those dots on the pattern were but completely forgot about till I read Michelle's post above and had the "ah-ha"
AMA mom to my miracle baby...ttc for 6 yrs, gave up and by the time I learned I was pg, she was born a mere 28 days later at 2 lbs 10 oz. Truly my blessed miracle.
