TYPE: shirt
TECHNIQUE: hvidsøm, square cut work
Shirt with ”Hvidsøm” on the collar, shoulder and sleeves. The ”Hvidsøm” is sewn on a separate piece of fabric and afterwards attached to the shirt. There are small areas of square cut work and cross stitching. The cuffs are embroidered with fillings where threads have been laid on top of the fabric instead of being drawn out as in ”Hvidsøm” fillings. The cuffs are finished in Hedebo edge with dense rows of Danish buttonhole stitch. On the shoulders there are squares, which look like square cut work, both in the small flower and between the two large flowers. Actually this is needle weaving as used in Baldyring”.
