Started on the hem edge of the pinafore... will be mostly just a triple running stitch, about a generous inch above the actual hemline, which will be left as a doubled raw edge. The skirt portion of the pinafore is made from a salvaged black jersey skirt, which had an unfortunate tendency for the hemline to roll up where it had been topstitched. I layered some more of the brown jersey all around the hem edge, to add some weight and hopefully keep the hemline from flipping up. Approximately every 11 to 13 inches there will be two tiny blue squares, which will be stitched around and cut away on the inside, identical to the squares accenting the Makintosh rose on the center front. Should finish this part of the handwork in a few days.
