This lovely shirt has a three-inch tall standing collar that is covered with fine and dense cross-stitch in a crisscross pattern. A narrow similar band runs down the front placket, that is in turn bordered by cross-stitch and pattern darning in which the ground is visible. There is also a solid cross-stitch pattern around the cuffs. From East Telemark.
