The embroidery of the second border for this tunic’s sleeves is done on greenish red mangalagiri cotton with stripes. With this stripes, I don’t have to draw lines for embroidering. And the embroidery was also designed in such a way to use these lines as markings.
I did four patches of this borders- two for sleeves[long] and two for the yoke borders[short]. The embroidery is the same for both.
On each border, Six lines of running stitch  are  worked leaving four lines in the middle for other details.. This is the picture of the running stitches worked on the fabric-

Small straight stitches in green were worked in the centre – for the rim jim thread to weave through.
And two lines of back stitches are worked in yellow thread in between the running stitch lines and the straight stitchline.
