ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew underarm seams - sew edge to edge with 1 stitch in every st to get a flat seam. Sew side seams the same way. Place sleeve under sleeve edge and fasten neatly with small stitches so that edge in garter st is visible – markers mid under sleeve should match side seams on body.
