I don’t have a separate picture of the sleeve fabric. It is pin-tucked fabric in lemon green/yellow block printed with blue floral motifs.
The idea was for a small yoke worked in another fabric of the same blue base.
A simple motif repeat pattern, with round outlines for mirrors.

The thread colours were picked from the tunic and sleeve fabrics. Anchor cotton skeins were used throughout this embroidery.
Herringbone stitches worked with lemon green thread-
