Subraja had asked for the pattern of this kutchwork on red tunic.
The wide border design is made by repeating the individual motifs. I am uploading the single motif.
The original design.

The progress of this week’s detached chain stitch of the TAST2012 stitch challenge by SharonB, is quite slow.
Today morning , an idea came to mind –of working on detached twisted chain stitches.the result-
11- the detached twisted chain stitch and its reverse are worked together in a row.

7.DE CH2-11

12-in this row detached twisted chain stitches are worked with longer tail. ch2-12

13-detached twisted chain stitches are worked facing away from each other[ or is it facing each other?] ch2-13a

Detached chain stitches are worked  in between the stitches. ch2-13b

14- a row of crossed detached twisted chain stitches are worked along with buttonhole stitch. ch2-14
