I know this is an old thread. Xristina, if you haven't finished your
project yet, or started the seams, or just want info on what stitches
are used nowadays to finish seams, email me at
. I am willing to make copies of pages in some
books I have and send them to you via snail mail. The books depict
seam-joining stitches for Ukrainian and Russian peasant blouses. They
remind me of macrame and I plan to use one of them to join the seams
of the blouse I am working on.
