In this tunic, the inspiration for the colours came from a kanjeevaram silk saree. The body of the saree was in blue, the border and pallu[ the part , which hangs over the shouder] were in light green colour. the border and pallu had zari woven all over.
With the blue colour as the tunic fabric, the colour choice was- light green to lemon yellow, from white to medium blue for the embroidery.

This tunic is more than five years old, this was the first time I used silk thread for embroidery. I have been using silk threads quite often after this.
