The randje per week 2016 challenge weekly chart was completed on Saturday. Yesterday I forgot to check Pintangle, so that is to be done today after posting this week’s works in progress here.
Kutchwork Cream tunic with kalamkari patch
This tunic is back form the tailor. This project was to be done in two phases. But the embroidery was not completed before sewing the tunic. This is the third phase, hoping to restart tomorrow.
Pink kutch work border on green
This project was kept aside for some time. A break from shisha work was used to work on this kutchwork border, and it progressed a little. Though a simple pattern, it takes a while to work because of the intricacy produced by using 2mm graph for the design.
The sleeves on the orange and violet combo fabric was completed. A corner pattern made of same borders was drawn, keeping in mind the design of the tunic.
After working mirror after mirror after mirror, break was necessary. This tunic fabric along with incomplete work was given for sewing. The remaining mirrors and bead work will be done after it comes back from the tailor.
A linen in beige is waiting for an embroidery design. I saw a tussar tunic which had ethnic Gujarati embroidery with mirrors. A yoke filled with these type of motifs and small mirrors seems like a good idea. Will have wait and see, how the idea develops into a yoke design.
