blue crepe parsi embroidery tunic


The parsi embroidery on blue crepe tunic was completed after working the french knots. The fabric is with the tailor now.
I have been working on laid work embroidery for BTAST. After filling a few more motifs, this sampler is completed for the time being. The details will be on a different post.
I have been lagging behind on black work mandala SAL. For the months of March and April, the Aida will have lesser holes per inch. Yesterday the markings were done on this piece. Thinking of using the polyester thread to work these mandalas.

Projects
My tailor is coming back next week. I was working parsi embroidery on satin fabric for a blue crepe tunic.
Parsi, Resham, Persian or chinese embroidery- are the different names by which this embroidery is called, which is a  padded satin stitch filling. The embroidery is on sleeve borders and tunic front. I was not sure whether this work can ever be completed and was working on it on and off these past few months. Some times even after working five hours a week the progress was very slow. It was demotivating. This was reason this project was not shared on this category. Now I am nearing the end of the project. The progress till today.
