There is a “post a photo of…” challenge in Stitchin fingers group.
The theme is International women’s day. The colour are – purple, white and green.
Now , about my participation.-
I had a purple fabric [My sister’s silk saree] which I made into a salwar, for that I wanted a white top, in which a pattern of grapes were embroidered. This was during 1992, I just knew very few embroidery stitches and designing a pattern was way beyond me.
Still I had sewn[ tailor , of course, that still hasn’t changed] a white tunic, on that I drew with hand ,this pattern.It did not draw any leaves. I don’t have the picture of the tunic, so
The tunic-[and me in 1994]-

Later I gave away this set, but still wanted to do the same thing again.
This time this was a short tunic in spun cloth,I had a paper pattern made[with leaves], which I traced on the fabric, then the embroidery was done, only after that it was given for sewing[by tailor] . Again I don’t have the picture of the tunic, so again the present day tunic [with me]-
