Seams are done & hems started

I finished the sleeve and body seams tonight. After pinning the fabric, matching points and circle, I stotched the mandatory 5/8" seam. The pattern called for a felled seam, but I used my serger to finish the seam edges. I rinoned the serged seam towards the back, and stitched again at 3/8" from the seam line to catch the folded seam on the inside of the shirt.

After the seams, I loaded blue thread on my cover stitch machine and hemmed the sleeves. The cover stitch machine is still new to me
