|My attempt at the cover pose|
I did a split hem on these, using this excellent tutorial from pattern~scissors~cloth.

I am not a big fan of interlock knit mostly because it has poor recovery. My neckline was a wavy mess when I finished it:
I was industrious and used some stretch thread which I ran through the channeling made by the neck binding. I did not follow the pattern instructions, but used Jalie's method of using a skinny binding. Here is a great tutorial to show how it's done. Once the elastic thread was inside the casing, it was almost gathered. After ironing, however, it came out perfect! Quite the save!!
