Now, you only have to sew the two parts together. 

Put them, right side to right side and start sewing the sleeves. Once you have sewn the sleeves, you only have to sew both laterals, letting a hole as big as you want for your arms. Cut the threads and fasten off. 

You can block it before or after sewing it. And it's done, your Crossed Stitch Top is ready to be worn!
