Default Help with pillowcase dress?

Is there an easier way to finish the arm holes rather than bias tape? Is there any reason I can't just serge the edge and fold it under?
Thanks!

I like to use bias binding, because I can get a nice smooth underarm seam. Personally if I tried to just serger and fold it under it wouldn't lay flat, it would be bumpy. BUT, it would be easier to just serger and fold, wish I could do it that way!

I do it both ways, seen plenty without bias tape.

I personally think bias tape is easier than folding under the armholes. I can never get it flat enough when I try to turn it under!

Sometimes I make a lined dress if I don't want to use bias tape.
