Red and green tunic


After the embroidery was completed, golden colour beads were added on the fly stitches.
The yoke border and the centre piece were attached to red tissue fabric . This red tissue was then stitched on to the tunic-

The tunic on my next post.

All these days I have been writing posts only on TAST challenge. So this post is to break away from that routine.
The fabrics of this tunic set are handloom cotton. The top is striped mangalagiri cotton in red . the salwar is also mangalagiri cotton in double colour [green and yellow].
The same salwar[Indian pants] fabric was used for the embroidery on yoke and sleeves.
The stitches used were, herringbone, stem, fly stitch and chain stitch. Beads were added in the end.
