The edge where the band is attached to the bottom of the blouse is covered with a row of white herringbone or cross stitch. The belt consists of a red woollen cord with pompoms on the ends, which is passed through a belt carrier on each side.

The pattern for the two rows of embroidery at the blouse hem are given. Work one row for the sleeve bands and the outline of the yoke, following the points of the latter.
