Drawn Thread Stitches

Antique Hem Stitch

A variation of Hem Stitch in which the needle is passed in between the hem at each stitch, rather than directly behind the it. Worked on the wrong side of the fabric with the stitches taken into the fabric being slightly longer and not as slanted as for ordinary Hem Stitch.
Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches, p 112-113
