IRCC - Handkerchief

This article of clothing was constructed as part of the IRCC challenge. The overall garment is intended to be worn by an Italian gentleman who living between 1520 and 1540. This item is a linen handkerchief. The edges were rolled and bound with hand stitched blanket stitches using linen thread. I then hand stitched some store bought lace to the edge. I’d love to learn to make the lace, but until I start making lace I’m stuck with the store bought variety.
