The green yoke for white/pink printed tunic was completed this week. It was easy working along the stripes.

After completing the embroidery, white sequins were added to these linear stitches.
This ready to wear Patiala salwar was bought on my previous trip to Chennai.

A dark blue fabric was chosen for the tunic. The pattern is inspired by ethnic Indian embroidery. Lots of spaces to be filled with herringbone stitches! The thread colours are plucked from the Patiala with an addition of white and pink. The embroidery on 3 cm borders for the sleeves and sides are started.

My kutchwork border designs are moving very slowly, so nothing much to report there.
