Tutorial: Finishing Neck and Armhole Edges on Doll Clothes

There are of course many ways to finish edges on doll clothes and I have tried them all. I was looking for a way to finish necks and armholes on sleeveless tops and dresses and I normally make a simple facing for the neck, but facings do not work too well on armhole edges.
