16th c Drawn Thread Work

I’ve started a new project, to recreated a 16th c shirt, and the specific shirt happen to have a small beautiful decoration around the collar. So, why not learn a new technique?

Original shirt (part of collar) top and my reproduction (bottom);

Width 1 cm (from black to black)

Since the technique is intriguing I just had to use it on other pieces;
Hemming with 1 thread removed

Testing the technique with 20 threads removed, and without a thread drawn through

With the drawn through thread in the middle

Nylén, A, The Royal Armoury, Stockholm, vol IV 8-9
