Rim jim thread, sequins and antique golden beads were stitched on to the yoke as embellishments.

I placed the yoke and the borders on the tunic fabric to see the effect-

More time was taken working on the borders. Yoke embroidery did not take much time, but I finished the borders first, then started on the yoke. Guess I was tired of working on this piece for such a long time, I wanted to complete the yoke as early as possible, so the embellishments were kept to the minimum. When I look at the yoke now, I can see more scope for embellishments.
I have worn this tunic several times, very apt for small festivities.
