Assemble the “Back” and the “Front” parts:
Place the two parts on each other, right sides facing. Sew at 1 cm of the side edges and the shoulder edges.
Finish the neckline as you wish. I made a simple hem. You can also add bias tape.
Be careful with jersey: it is very extensible when you are not working on straight grain. It tends to crinkle if you don’t pay attention. I advise you to stay stitch the neckline edges and the armhole edges.
If you use jersey as I did, you don’t need to serge the raw edges. Otherwise sew all raw edges before your start sewing the parts together.
