Add seam allowance to all your pattern pieces, make sure to follow your specific pattern seam and hem allowance measurements. DO NOT add seam allowance to the lines just created (top armhole and sleeve), since these edges will be finished using binding. Remember the lower half of the armhole gets seam allowance (refer to images above). You will also need to draft a bias strip that is long enough to cover the front shoulder opening, back shoulder opening, and top sleeve opening. Draft a rectangle that is 1 5/8" wide and the measurement of your opening plus 3". This piece will be cut 2x and on the bias.
