A really nice neck edging

I have been looking at some of my photos again, which I do at intervals to see if I can get any inspiration.   This photo caught my attention for the neck finishing  and the stitching where they had attached the sleeves. Screen Shot 2021-10-20 at 10.20.08 amIn my dressmaking class I have choosen a blue coloured fabric so I suppose that is what caught my attention because the colour is so similar.  This neck edge seems to be stitched in a blanket stitch, or it might have been crocheted.  You can get that effect with crocheting as well.   I think I will go with crocheting.  The stitch used at the sleeve seam will have to have been done with a needle.  I am going to have to have a go at replicating that I like it so much.   It was probably done with a blue varigated perle thread.    And although the flower stitching is perfect for this piece I don't think it would suit my dress.

It is indeed beautiful, but I can not make out how it was made. Looking forward to seeing the progress of your experiment.


It is delightful, yes, and could be either crochet or blanket stitch. Probably quicker with a crochet hook..

Yes I agree.
