mirros and stones on black/blue tunic


Before working the mirrors and the stones, the outlines have to be dealt with. The outline for the stones were worked in back stitch.

After working the chain stitch outline, the mirrors were stitched on to the motif.

Generally I don’t instruct the tailor on neck patterns, so this was his choice. I placed the sleeves beside the motif, while taking this picture.

I wear a black salwar or blue leggings with this tunic.

This tunic has two fabrics, black spun cotton for the body of the tunic and printed chanderi cotton for the sleeves. The sleeve fabric-

I drew a medium sized motif from the print of the sleeve fabric.

The pattern was copied on the black cloth-

The idea was to work the motif in one colour-the sleeve fabric colour-blue. The mirrors worked with the same thread and the stones were also blue. Started with the feather stitch variation and chain stitch outlines for the mirrors.
