Details Pt. 2

Montgomery Ward - Powr House chore coat

I really like the way the lines of the sleeve seams merge into the cuff seams.

Keyhole buttonhole

 Another keyhole buttonhole - two tone stitching

Serged/overlocked edge from a WWII army blanket.  I've been doing some research to figure out what machine would have been in common use during the 1940's for overlocking, and would have been used for military applications.  Probably a Merrow, but it could also have been a Singer. 
Either way, cotton thread and a high stitch count are where it's at!
