    This is gorgeous! It looks quite simple although I don’t have a serger so I don’t know how I would finish the edges… Is it literally THAT easy? Just that rectangle with the hole? And if so, what are the dimensions?

      About finishing edge…
      It all depends on the fabric, but I think there are many kinds of jersey which you can leave the edge raw on this kind of garments. Just choose the one which doesn’t fray, and it’ll be perfectly fine. I strongly recommend to secure the edge of armholes by binding or piping though. The dimensions and a bit of information are blogged here. I hope it helps!
