After completing the stitch samplers of the TAST challenge, I am resuming the details of the embroidery designs on tunics . this tunic fabric is hand woven ikat fabric in blue.
I don’t have a separate picture of the sleeve fabric. It is pin-tucked fabric in lemon green/yellow block printed with blue floral motifs.
The idea was for a small yoke worked in another fabric of the same blue base.
A simple motif repeat pattern, with round outlines for mirrors.
The thread colours were picked from the tunic and sleeve fabrics. Anchor cotton skeins were used throughout this embroidery.
Herringbone stitches worked with lemon green thread-
More details on my next post.
