This morning I redid the shoulders with short row shaping and did the three needle bind off to join them. Then I did the armhole edging, which consisted of picking up stitches and then immediately binding them off again knitwise. This yields a purled edging next to a single column of knit stitches. I have seen a number of projects where multiple rows were knit or purled before the bind off, resulting in a rolled armhole edging, similar to what is called for with neck edging. Seaming would have been easier if I had thought to keep a knit two edging on the bodice. This would also have continued the knit edging on the corset and provided a more finished look, but I am not going to rip back and redo this. Maybe if I make another. Now all I have to do is pick up the stitches for the peplum, and then do the neck edging and it will be finished.
