white, aqua green mull tunic


This week went with working on tunics. Yesterday, White counted thread embroidery was completed on this aqua green fabric. Once it goes to the tailor, He has to sew this onto the white printed mull tunic.

I am starting with variegated silk thread on this neckline embroidery on synthetic gold fabric.

I started working on the plum colour cotton tunic. Again it is chain stitch embroidery, I should design projects such a way that- I keep hopping between different embroidery stitches. It would keep the work interesting.

This  fabric is the same one remaining from this tunic sewn earlier.

May be this is right time to switch over to the challenge stitches!

This past week was not very productive. It was hard to find time to sit and stitch continuously. The navy blue cotton tunic was completed and is with the tailor now.
In this Aqua green fabric, the main thread is white. After working the upright cross stitches over the aqua green black work motif, short straight stitches were worked along the border.

These straight stitches are used to work thick white thread through them. It is a combination of Pekinese stitch and Kashmiri couching stitch. Pekinese stitch is worked over back stitch without a stitch to secure the curve, in Kashmiri stitch the thicker thread is couched, in this way, with the thinner thread. I am yet to practice on that couching technique. Hence this short cut method.

After working the fly stitch variations around the square, short chain stitches are worked with the same thread along the border.

I can’t take a break from chain stitch I suppose.

These past few weeks it was hard to get to the computer to post on blog. The progress is also not much when compared to the time lapse.
I am in the last phase on this navy blue tunic. A few more fillings, it should be completed. It does get monotonous to work the chain stitches over and over again.

White thread is to be used predominantly on this aqua green fabric, after working with green and medium aqua green, white thread was started. Lots more to stitch on this tunic.

The next colour on the golden synthetic fabric is turquoise blue thread. Fly stitch variations are being worked on this pattern.

It is really a challenge to catch up with the stitch challenges, hope the following weeks are better.
