I thought the instructions for using a binding on the sleeve slit on JJ were far too fiddly, so I used a technique I learned from a vintage 1940s dress pattern, where this was used to create a simple slit in the back neck (which later had a hook and eye added at the top). It's very versatile for adding a slit anywhere!
