    Hi Shelly I haven’t been about to do a video but saw good instruction on the link below I posted this on the Burda facing blog too.After not having time to make a video to demonstrate the facing method with no hand sewing. I found a blog post today which illustrates it well. It feels a bit weird to sew the armhole seam with the other side of the garment rolled into it, but it works, is easy to do and gives an excellent result. (I learnt this method when I was 13 at school). If you make the facing a little bit smaller than the outer fabric by a couple of mm, the facing will sit nicely inside. This is from Heidi at Elegance and Elephants blog. I could only find one video on line with this method but they made their sample a bit too small to see what is happening. Yay for no hand sewing!
