When working with knits, it is important not to stretch or pull the fabric while sewing. Also use a stretch needle and a stretch stitch. In this pattern all seams are sewed with a twin needle, unless indicated otherwise. Only the upper notches of the sleeve and the plackets are sewn with a straight stitch.
