This type of tunic with simple embroidery is always in fashion. The tunic fabric is handloom cotton.
I had another handloom [mangalagiri] cotton fabric with zari border. The pattern was drawn on that.
The embroidery was worked with cotton skeins, metallic thread and stones were added as embellishments. Herringbone filling stitch was done in red thread.
The same stitch was used with the beige thread too.
The outline was done with gold metallic thread, worked like this it looks like Aari work. This I have to learn one day.
The last part of this piece was completed with stones.
The tailor did a good job of sewing this tunic, again I love the neck line. The extra zari borders were sewn on the sleeves.
The pattern for this embroidery.
The detail –
This tunic is worn with maroon jeggings. The fabric feels very cool in summer. I feel the zari border played a big part in this tunic project.
