Hand Sewn Seams
When doing the seams on a linen tunica I have seen posts here that say that flat felled is the way to go.  I am using the Archaeological Sewing Site by heather Rose Jones, Figure #58, Flat-felled-type: running stitch of RST + overcast of (single-fold edge to fabric).

I tried a sample piece with a different color thread to make sure I am doing it correctly.  The linen is just a piece of scrap, not the color I will be using.

First, I used a running stitch to join the two pieces, wrong side together.

Then I pressed the seam open and trimmed one side down.

Then I folded the longer side over and whip stitched it down.

Does that look correct?  And this is the outside, right?  Thank you for any pointers.  After having my Roman project shelved for several years, I want to get back to it.
