In this second post, the progress of the phulkari patterns on the brown yoke-
I have done the left over triangles in light green and beige.
The phulkari looks like satin stitch, but it is only surface satin. Geometrical shapes are worked in surface satin stitches. The patterns are spread over a large area, for- bedspreads, cushions, dupattas, tunics, to name a few.
I saw a film’Rab ne banaya jodi’ where the heroine wore fully embroidered phulkari dupattas most of the time, especially during song sequences.
The yoke so far-

beige & green tunic -2 yoke

The beige colour worked on the zigzag border design , on my next post.
