    Now thats interesting, i notice that on the preceeding caps the soutache is all one piece as expected , the SS example appears to be in two pieces or is this just stitching covering the apex of the soutache.

    I'm working on it!!

    Do you know how difficult it is to hold a cap and a needle and thread and a video camera at the same time!
    Ouch! Watch the fingers . . . I can very vividly imagine the dificulty! Maybe I need to make a pit-stop to London, and help hold the cam? The first round will be on me . . .

    Really not in any hurry - sorry for the "ribbing" . . . saw the topic at hand, "Ask Jeeves", and I could not resist! Please keep up with the challenge - I really do appreciate your offer to share in this way, and know there will be many other expressions of shared endearment upon your triumph!

    P.S. Unduly so, I am all the more sorry to say, in my mind, you will forever now be marked with moniker of "Jeeves" . . !

    For the record here is the "traditionally" accepted method of attaching the soutache........although not the only way as demonstrated by the photos above.
