Blindstitch? Answered

I'm surprised you don't include the blindstitch. It's the "invisible stitch" used to handstitch hem a garment once the edges of fabric and folded over, pinned and ironed perfectly flat. I must admit I just hem with a machine stitch nowadays, but I still remember blindstitching the five foot (or more) hem around a very full cotton prairie skirt (think hippy dippy 1960's) with one teeny stitch after another. Especially on fancy garments, it completely hides the hem thread.
