Kilt Progress: Double Fringe!

Edge of kilt with fringe plus an extra strip of fringe

Kilt progress: Double fringe! Pulling out the threads to make the fringe is fun and strangely relaxing. I cut a strip of fabric that exactly matches the apron pattern so I can do a double fringe. The apron is folded, bringing the line of white basting (on the right in the first photo) up to the fringe. This forms the facing. The extra strip is tucked inside the fold. The two fringes are hand sewn to the fold (which now becomes the apron edge). In the second photo you can see the red stitches running close to the edge. Ignore the messy white basting. It holds the facing in place until the wool gets a good pressing.
