Just posted an odd top/vest combo to my album:

http://www.wildginger.com/forums/photos/show-album.asp?albumid=206&...

DD wanted the hood on the top, not on the fleece vest.

Have sewn 2 fleece garments in the last week and a half, and am not fond of the stuff. What is the best, least bulky but also least distorting, way to finish sleeveless armholes in heavy fleece?

Lovely combo!
Looks like your armholes turned out well, for a different finish what about a knit binding? I don't sew with much fleece so don't speak from experience but have seen some prepackaged binding for fleece in limited colours in our equivalent of Joanne's.

Thanks! I didn't know there was such a thing. Will look for it the next time I'm at JoAnn's (my only nearby choice for this sort of thing).

The first robe I made I bound the edges with a print cotton. It still looks good and has held up well. The second, which is more tailored I faced with a print baby flannel. I took more time with this one and again it still looks good and has worn well. Both are washed regularly. I've been wondering if ribbing would work. Depending of course on being able to find it in yardage! It used to be a staple in fabric shops that carried knits. Wonder where it has all gone to?

I really like this combo, love the shirt. And the colors are high fashion right now!

Great outfit!  It looks very hip and expensive...I've found that using a knit cut on the cross grain works well to bind armholes. ( or the edge of sleeves. collars, anything..)    You can use nylon lycra , like in bathing suits, or cotton lycra, even ponte if there's lycra with good recovery in it.  JoAnn's has some cotton ribbing but it's limited.  Around armholes I cut it a little shorter ( 3/4" or so ) Seam it and stretch it on the bias areas of the armhole.  Or you can just cut it too long and slightly tug on it all the way around to avoid a gapping armhole.
