This tunic has yoke and sleeves embroidered on two fabrics- greenish red and orange.
The detailing of the sleeves- I made two simple borders, one in orange and another one in greenish red. The orange border-
A line of back stitch worked in cream, over that I wanted the rim jim thread going in a zig zag pattern. For this small straight stitches were worked in light yellow colour thread , and the rim jim thread was just passed through these small stitches.
The orange border after the embroidering-

Small sequins were attached with red beads –

This border is done only for the sleeves, the yoke does not have a this detailing on it.
