You will find it much easier to now pin the pieces together. Fan out the concave curve and pin down over the convex curve. Make sure to align the center of the arcs.

While sewing, you can smooth out any puckers or tucks. You will do this again when pressing.

Now you have a smooth curvilinear seam, with out too much misery. You can use this technique to make any body-conforming seam easier, as well as sleeves and insets.
