TYPE: shirt
TECHNIQUE: square cut work
Shirt with square cut work on collar, cuffs, and shoulders. The shoulder pattern is sewn on a finer fabric than that of the shirt. There are no patterns along the edge of the front opening, but there is a square cut work border along the full length of the shoulder piece. The pattern is simple and consists of eight- pointed stars, crosses and small squares within larger squares, which we recognise from counted thread work. The borders of the collar and the cuffs are identical and both have a Hedebo edge consisting of dense rows of Danish buttonhole stitch finished with a row of picots.

•    At the bottom of the front opening,  bars of threads oversewn like a plain whipped hemstitch
•    The monogram and its characteristic blue cross stitching
