When I was watching India fashion week, I was quite taken by a traditional tunic design. the material was silk [georgette or chiffon] with an embroidered yoke. the yoke was block printed with filling pattern, and the embroidery was done for the border, and the outlines of the printed design. This was the inspiration.
Without comprehending the whole design, I started my design process. I had to do some motif repeats for the centre, and small borders too. Later decided to add antique gold sequins to enhance, the embroidery, after all, the tunic was silk chiffon. The first stage of the design-

blue chiffon yoke-1

Will continue with the details on my next post.
