Some close up's of the turned edges - yes I am going blind from the fold back handstitching.
I dug around in my stash of threads that I picked up from my grandmother's house before it was sold, since I wanted to use silk for the topstitching. I found these lovely old wooden spools with this handspun silk. I've tried to find comparable thread in case I run out, to no avail. YLI is nice but just doesn't have the same smooth sheen.
