The motif pattern is simple and medium sized.
At this stage I had not bought the peach brocade fabric, so that was not taken into account while choosing the thread colours. The colours were chosen based on the maroon tunic fabric. I thought green would go well with maroon and beige.

I tried a something new with stem and leaves, the stem was worked in fly stitch in dark green and the leaves were worked in leaf stitch in light green, this can be used as a decorative seam.
One tunic design idea that strikes me now is, It’ll b great if a whole tunic front is covered with motifs of this size. But tracing and positioning the motifs would be a laborious job.
Will continue with embroidery on yoke on my next post.
