Neaten the outer curved edge and short edges of the armhole facings with an overlocker/serger. With right sides together pin the armhole facings to the armholes following the notches. Once in place stitch from the step notch at one end to the step notch at the opposite end, be sure to backstitch at each end. Clip into the seam at each step notch and turn the facings out to the right side. Understitch close to the seam on the side of the facings and press the facings to the inside of the body.

Pin the armhole facing to the inside of the body and topstitch around the overlocked/serged outer edges of the facings.
