I found this paisley pattern somewhere on the net. Thought it can be used for kantha[running stitch] work.
I just had to make very small adjustments, to make the pattern symmetrical.
I had a blue[another] blue mangalagiri cotton fabric, I also found a dark blue managalagiri[again] with border,this border I used for sleeves.
Dark blue and half/white colours threads were used for embroidery.
Now for the actual embroidery- the outer pattern of the paisley was worked in dark blue, I have started with half white on the inner pattern in this picture.
These are worked in back stitch with three strands of thread.
The filling stitch details will be on my next post.
