Armholes are finished with a contrast bias binding.

The pattern pieces are drawn with a CAD program, and include highly detailed step-by-step instructions with pictures to guide you through the sewing process.

I like Crabapples patterns---I've bought several. They are easy to follow and the result is always spot on. The designs are what catch my eye but I've found the instructions are explained thoroughly. Can't wait to try this for BB---I bought the same one for 18" dolls some time ago and it turned out soooo cute!
