1. JOINING THE SHOULDER SEAMS:

Lay top’s right sides together and serge (or sew) together both shoulder seams. Press the seams towards the back.

4. PREPARING SLEEVES:

If you have a coverstitch machine skip this step and do the sleeve hems as the last step.
If you don’t have a coverstitch ma-chine then lay together sleeves right side together with folded useful strips right side. Stitch the strip around the hem. Cut off the surplus of the strip.

5. JOINING THE SLEEVES:

Lay body panels’ right sides together with the sleeve’s right side by match-ing the notches (the middle notch of the sleeve matches with the shoulder seam). Serge or sew. Repeat with the other sleeve.

7. FAUX FLAT SEAM HEM:

If you have a coverstitch machine leave this step as the last one.
But for the rest of us, here’s a trick to make the hem look like you have a coversttch machine:
Similarly as previously - lay the tank top’s right side hem together with the folded strip’s right side. Stitch the strip around the hem. Cut off the surplus of the strip.

9. SEAM REINFORCEMENT:

Backstitch with a sewing machine the seams that are ending with an open overlock stitch to avoid threads tearing at the ends of the seams.
Reinforce both sleeves seam endings and the lower side of the right side seam.
