Work In Progress On Wednesday - Kutchwork on a Kurta

My work in progress series is stepping to third week. I started this with the post of Dress design .
This week sharing about the Kutchwork on a Kurta. I have shared How to trace design on stitched Kurta in my previous post. On the same Kurta I am starting to embroider Kutch work design.
Here is the Kurta with design traced on it:

The design traced

There are some mistakes, I can correct those as it is a geometrical design. The Kurta is in wine color, choosing between pink and light purple for the embroidery. Normally Kutch work looks good with bright color, hope this color look good because of the combination.

  1. Mural work looks neat and perfect. If I trace the design on a stitched dress I used to trace it segment by segment. Yes we can correct the design while stitching in kutch work. Looking forward for the finished work.

  4. Beautiful mural work, Ranjana:) love the vibrant colors, great job!
    Looking forward to your Kutch work. I have earlier done Kutch work on a bedsheet but I mostly rely on my hand drawing because tracing has always been an annoying task for me.

  8. The kerala mural has come out very well, Ranjana. Great work!! How many strands of the thread are you using for Kutch work? Wouldn't cotton threads be easier to do?
