yellow mirrorwork on pink tunic


Thus the tunic is completed with the different treatments to the mirror worked florals.
Generally I work on symmetrical patterns, this time it was refreshing to work on this pattern.I did not have repeat everything twice, sometimes if I have sleeves to embroider, then it is a four times repeat.

The treatments around the floral mirrors can be used as decorative stitches too.

This was the first time that I used mirror work as a flower motif, the stitches around the mirrors are worked to enhance that effect. I enjoyed working on this pattern very much.

The colours used in this embroidery are based on the colours of the salwar print.
The embroidery pattern fills the front of the tunic, till waist length.

This pink tunic and its salwar are handloom cotton fabrics.
The design for this embroidery was taken from a embroidery design book. there it was on small scale, I enlarged it to suit my requirement.
The colours chosen for the embroidery are from the block printed salwar –

The salwar fabric also had a border, which I used for the sleeves.
The mirrors worked in this tunic are used as a flower for a small motif-
