[Northkeep] sewing question

Since you already have the shell and the lining made up, I'd go for 
stitching them together around the neckline/front opening/hem perimeter, 
leaving a gap of a few inches to turn it through.

To finish the armholes, mark your stitching line (I ususally to this with 
stay stitches if using a machine, or basting stitiches if by hand).  Clip 
the seam allowance to allow the finished seam to lay flat, tuck the seam 
allowances inward, and stitch with blind stitch or tiny overcast stitches 
(refer to your little sewing kit - you've done both kinds).

There are other assembly techniques that let you bypass having to turn and 
stich the armhole, which I can talk about if anyone's interested.

(not yet 6:00 am and way sleepy but trying to catch up on her e-mail before 
having to leave town for a few days)
