I keep promising myself "one of these days" I'll shorten the sleeves. This hasn't happened, yet. The neck and shoulder openings are outlined by commercial braid-like trim I bought. The sleeves are trimmed with white cord stacked into rows of blanket stitches. I use blanket stitching on the edges of fabric as an experiment into naalbinding. Naalbinding is an early pre-courser to such activities as knitting, crochetting, and tatting. Building up rows of blanket stitching on a garment's edge one of the most primitive forms of Naalbinding.
Naalbinding properly is a Germanic (and Migration-Age Viking) craft form, but, with trade, stranger things would have been possible for Irish clothing.
