Decorative seam

I used this decorative border on the sleeves of a tunic
It’s a combination of three stitches-
Herringbone st in maroon
Fly st in golden yellow
5 straight sts in peach .[looks like pink,though]
This border was quiet an easy and swift one to do.No marking or patterning required. I did them in 3 strands.

This brown tunic is striped with beige and red . this handloom cotton is bought readymade quiet while ago.I wore a beige salwar for this.After noticing that it did not have any interesting element to make it exclusive , I added mirrors and a motif to it.

Pink on brown

This is one of the example where, the colour dominates and attracts more than the embroidery itself. Sometimes this aspect helps when, Iam stuck for the right pattern Then ,I let the colours choose it for me.
