I made my own bias tape again, because I'm a sucker for a perfect match, even though I find it annoying to make. For a solid top, you could probably just get away with turning the hem under and topstitching it, but I wanted that little bit of extra detail.
I mostly followed the directions as written, other than taking the easy way out by applying the bias tape to the neckline and hem just by topstitching instead of doing it the "right" way. I did do the sleeve binding as instructed and it was pretty slick.

She wore the pantalets from her Raggedy Ann costume underneath for some added warmth. The top comes down pretty low on her, so she wore a long-sleeved tee also.
