If you can show in your documentation that an overlock stitch was standard for the period, fabric & garment, then just state that you attempted to re-create the look of an overlock stitch without an overlock machine.
It shows that you know what is correct & tried to re-create that within certain limitations (not owning an industrial overlock machine, for instance).
