German term or phrase: verstürzt
In comparison to the "umgeschlagener Taschenbeleg" of my last question, I have "Taschenbeleg verstürzt, gesäumt und von Hand anstaffiert". I imagine there must be an extra piece of material sewn on, can anyone suggest a translation? TIA!

Explanation:
From my word list from a similar job:
verstürzen = stitch and turn
(i.e. work a seam most of the way round the item then turn the right way out).
