HandEmbroidery on Shirt

When I was doing my Textile & fashion design studies, there I learn some new techniques of Embroidery! Did you hear about Zardosi work? It’s an embroidery technique mostly done with aar & tilla on fabric, I have done this work on a leather purse too. I really enjoy it when I started working on my shirt with the same technique! so why not to show you my creation today?
Have a look girls!

How is it? I have done it with a lot of interest, passion and love. I enjoy doing this embroidery work a lot.

I draw the embroidery pattern first on paper & its freehand design, but you can copy or print any other design of your choice by downloading online or copying from somewhere. After making the design pattern on the shirt, I collect the material for embroidery. The real work starts here. I completed this shirt embroidery in a week only! because I was very excited for seeing the outcome of this embroidery work!

I use a big square hoop as a frame of embroidery.

Inner side of the shirt, I think I did pretty neat job without making the mess! It’s looking simple and fine, not much mess of threads inside..right?

For this embroidery, I have used silk threads, sequences & the needle tool which is similar to a crochet hook.
