The chart on RPW 2016 challenge was completed on Saturday.
The stitch of the week on TAST 2016 is threaded cable chain. This was the last stitch on earlier TAST challenge. I had worked the samples then.
Dark blue mirror work yoke
The work on this fabric was completed with the mirror work and sequins. The details of the embroidery is posted here.
Yellow red khadi tunic
This tunic is sewn now. The next segment is designing the embroidery. A notion of using paisley shaped mirrors is lurking in the mind.
Kutch and mirror work on blue tunic with yellow orange patiala
This the last in the set of three yokes designed in February, the tunic fabric is blue with stripes. The Indian pants, this time is a Patiala salwar in yellow with orange print.
The pattern was drawn on an orange cotton fabric. The embroidery is kutch work and mirror work together. Started with fly stitches in green thread on the leaves and moved on to the orange kutch work motifs.
Cream and black chanderi tunic
This is the next project. A small border in black fabric with mirror discs and embroidery with gold and silk thread is the idea. The search for the pattern is on. This will be small border.
I am happy with the progress made this week. Posting details while the project is still fresh in mind is motivating and energizing.
