Smalt Blue Shaded Embroidery on a Scarlet Georgette Tunic
This classy design of embroidered sheer georgette tunic is soothing, artistic to look at. This graceful hand embroidered tunic has a special form of embroidery called "chikan" which started as a traditional embroidery style of ancient princely states and is ever popular till date.
Sheer material and these tunics are ideally meant to be worn as a loose fit.
Georgette is an excellent choice for free flowing tunics. The thing that makes georgette fabric distinctive is the crinkly crepe-light texture, which feels slightly rough and dull, but gives the fabric a bouncy, flowing look. The threads used in georgette fabric are highly twisted, which causes them to crinkle as they relax. The weave of georgette tends to be rather tight, but the overall appearance is slightly sheer, since the threads are very thin.Creation of a chikan work piece begins with the use of one or more pattern blocks that are used to block-print a pattern on the ground fabric. The embroiderer then stitches the pattern, and the finished piece is carefully washed to remove all traces of the printed pattern. The patterns and effects created depend on the types of stitches and the thicknesses of the threads used in the embroidery. Some of the varieties of stitches used include back-stitch, chain stitch and hemstitch. The result is an open work pattern, lace or shadow-work.
