I don’t have any photos to post.I have done earlier kashmiri couching stitch on a green silk tunic.I don’t have the pictures.I wanted make a sampler of the kashmiri couching stitches, while doing the first TAST challenge.Haven’t done it though.
This embroidery I did in 2008.The tunic fabric is printed crepe in green.
This time I was smart enough to do 2 things-
1-I did the embroidery on a different piece of cloth[cotton].
2-I gave lining to the tunic, so that it maintained its shape.
the embroidery did not have many contrasting colours.
The focus here was antique sequins and beads. So the pattern is a very simple one. geometrical repeats were designed on a graph paper.Now for the closeup-
I was quite happy with the embroidery, pattern, stitching of this tunic.I am wearing it as a salwar top now. I do seem to have lots of green tops, though!
