sample based on Paint Shop Pro print.
Scraps of sari silks ironed onto fusible interfacing, then machined all over with straight stitch in different directions to blend colours together and soften edges.
Small pattern shapes cut from metallic fabric and gold tissue paper, bonded on and machined over in metallic thread. The large pattern shape is cut from felt, machine applied to the main fabric, then covered in french knots worked in lurex threads. The pattern shape was then outlined in couched lurex thread.
