The rest of the yoke-
As mentioned earlier, the rest of the yoke is designed as a continuation of the paisley pattern.
I drew semi-circles around the buttons, and worked them with mirrors, chain st and kutch work.
For the central motif, a regular kutch square, with mirrors were worked , around that motif, a chain stitch line and kutch work line , similar to paisley was worked . It was completed with kutch work in semi circle, and a single mirror.

yellow tunic - centre design

The tunic with fully embroidered yoke looks like this-

yellow tunic

I wear a black churidar or black tights for this tunic. I played safe in choosing the colours. This combination always works out fine. Whenever a design is borrowed [ in this case from a book] I tend to go with time tested colours .
I don’t know, whether this pattern can be called my own or not.
Earlier , I had worked a yoke , fully worked in kutch work in black. There , the fabric had more orange, this tunic fabric has more yellow.
