In addition to using the handspun thread for this project, I am also employing more period sewing techniques than I typically have been using. The hems are only 5mm wide, and rather than hemming with running stitches (which i can do quick, while still being very neat and even by using a very long, fine modern needle) I am using a hem stitch as was more common on these caps. I am trying to keep it to 4 stitches per 10mm and having them no more than 2mm long. I just might go blind doing this, but it seems to be working out well (even if progression is slow and the stitches are not as even as I would prefer).
