The embroidery pattern for this yoke came from the inspiration to do mirror work and a pattern to suit the mirrors.
The first plan was to have mirror work border, and a floral pattern which will accommodate mirrors on it.
The tunic fabric is block printed cotton-

green&pink-fabric

A greyish green fabric was chosen for the yoke.
The embroidery was worked with three strands of cotton skeins.
The stitches used were- chain stitch, herringbone stitch, straight stitch, detached chain stitch, and mirror work.
I did not take pictures from the beginning of the embroidery. The details on my next post.
