The embroidery for the white kota cotton fabric with green block prints was completed this week. The tunic is with the tailor.
Black border tunic
Filling stitches on the paisley motif were worked with variegated fine silk thread on the black fabric with woven border.
This pink tunic with border was sewn by the tailor last week. The embroidery designing is yet to be done.
There was not much progress on embroidery work. I was seeing many Marash embroidery work. The history of Armenia was sad.
Keeping the idea of Marash embroidery a border was designed. I am a novice at circular kutchwork patterns. Three more ideas on this type of embroidery are waiting in queue. It is a different experience to plan and scheme a kutch pattern without mirrors or other stitches. Still it is very interesting. Hope to design them all before it slips from the memory.
