Some short cuts are OK in assembling a new garment. However, I never skip the stay-stitching that pattern directions call for. There always is a good reason and need for stay-stitching on any curve or bias edge, such as in armholes and necklines. That narrow type of hem — which also is called a shirt-tail hem — usually is so easy that no basting or pinning is required, if you first machine-stitch just along the edge an eighth of an inch or so in from the edge. It easily will turn under along that line of stitching.
