Line up the front-and back-piece shoulder-seams by matching the points marked “b” and “c” (right sides of the fabric facing each other). Pin, and sew the seam using a stitch for stretch (or a small zig-zag).
Line up the front-and back-piece side-seams by matching the points marked “d” and “e”. Pin, and sew.
If you want to, finish the edges using a method of your choice (for example by making a hem and sewing it with a twin-needle). I’ve left them unfinished, since I’ve used very light fabrics that don’t frey.
