This tunic  was a synthetic floral printed fabric. I predominantly work on cotton fabrics, some times I work on silk fabrics too. This yoke is worked in silk .
The tunic fabric-

I wanted the yoke to be a simple one. The yoke itself was big, the motifs also big, but the embroidery was simple, I filled the motifs in herring bone stitches and outlined them with back stitches.
The yoke started with the blue colour thread-

At first I had planned on filling the motifs with chain stitches, but while working, found that they took a lot of time to be filled,so I switched to herringbone filling. This picture shows both.
