Here was my simple process:
1- Sew the side and shoulder seams
2- Try on for fit - great!
3- Serge side and shoulder seams
4- Serge along neckline and sleeve edges
5- Fold under serged edge, press, and topstich sleeves and neckline
6- Serge lower edge - press up 1" - topstitch hem
7- Wear on a sunny day!
**EDIT** I totally forgot to mention that I changed the neckline from the pattern - my first version was great, but a little wide on the shoulders (I have pretty narrow shoulders, mind you) so for this version, I cut the shoulders narrower. I also decided I wanted a lower scoop neck, so I used the extremely precise method of putting it on the dress form and chopping away until I liked how it looked :) It definitely fits the bill - no sliding off the shoulders at all!
