Confused with this row

I am making a baby jacket to match my baby blanket (I finished it! :woot: ) and while I was working on it it said this:
• Row 7: Work in Stockinette stitch (knit 1 row, purl 1 row). Work until piece measures 7 from beginning.

Does it mean in till it is seven inches long, the whole peice, or seven inches from where the Stockinette stich began? :eyes:

7" from the very beginning, where you first started knitting

Oh! I did not know that. Thx for the help! :woohoo: Back to work!
