white blue chanderi tunic


I had designed three pieces for embroidery on tunics in February when working on a long project. This is the second piece. After completing the work on this blue silk cotton fabric, the piece suited a white chanderi silk cotton tunic fabric and I found the embroidery done around the mirror was worth sharing .
It started with the pattern-

Buttonhole stitch variations are worked over the pattern drawn.

The small oval shapes were intended for detached chain stitches. I felt oyster stitch was  a better choice. It so happened while working on this stitch, SharonB announced oyster stitch on this week’s TAST 2016 challenge. These oyster stitches were worked in four strands of cotton skein.

The triangular space around the mirror pattern was worked in herringbone filling.

Two designs are traced on two separate fabrics chosen for these two tunics. After working the embroideries on both, selection of yokes will be made between these two tunics. The third yoke is medium sized, the work on it will commence after the completion of these two projects.
Embroidery-
After working with red colour on crepe tunic, the first yoke is multi coloured. I have just started the kutchwork motifs. After working these motifs, square mirrors will be stitched on to this yoke.
