How to sew . . . a split bias cut yoke

How to sew a split yoke

Toni-Maree from Bobbins & Co is back today to show you how to make a split cut bias.  She uses the Archie Shirt (by Ainslee Fox Boutique Patterns from Issue 6 of One Thimble Digital Sewing Magazine) in her example but you could use this method on any yoke.  This super example above was made by Shelley from and me designs.
