The tunic fabric is mangalagiri cotton with maroon and yellow stripes.
I came across a geometric border on a tunic in a shop. This was a printed border. I wanted use this design idea for embroidery on tunic. This inspired pattern had both mirror and kutch work elements.
Starting with metallic thread and small kutch elements.
Chain stitch outline in green thread.
The same green thread is used for continuous kutchwork design.
Medium square mirrors were stitched on this embroidered border.
It was hard to take a straight picture of this tunic, because of the mirrors.
The detail of the sewn tunic with embroidery.
This being a geometric design, it also was an inspiration for this black work border. I have not used this pattern.
