This tunic fabric is chanderi cotton & silk mix. Things I know are it comes from a place called Chanderi,it is a woven fabric, on which textile prints are done,quite delicate , to be worn as dress needs lining. I have seen many chanderi sarees, and these days,chanderi dress materials are also available.
When I wanted to design a yoke for this tunic,inspiration was at its all time low. It was nil actually! Then , mirror work was chosen.

Designing was very minimum,just placing of the mirrors in rows.
So far so good,when the choice of colours came, again there was a block, So I ended up working the mirrors in these colours-

cream&black chanderi tunic-working

How well the yoke does not match the tunic will be seen on my next post!
