The tailor drew the neck for me.I then traced  the pattern  for yoke and sleeves. for sleeves it was easy  because, the pattern was geometrical. The salwar is in  dark pink.The thread colours ranged from dark to light pink ,adark green and lemon yellow.A few pearl beads  here and there to embellish the tunic.

I used  surface satin stitch mostly,but liked doing it on the wavy line pattern, it looked like it was woven.I was not so sure about the green that was used, after completing the piece.
