The stitches used in this yoke border were satin stitch and back stitch and chain stitch. Silk threads were used for filling and white cotton skein for outline.
The next colour was a mixture of orange and yellow, which had a metallic sheen to it-

bu or yk2-3

The outline was done in bright orange silk thread-

bu or yk2-4

Embroidery stitches were completed in back stitches  with white thread-

bu or yk2-5

After adding the gold beads, the yoke set was placed over the tunic-

bu or ykon fabric

Then the whole set was given to the tailor for sewing. The colour of the block print of the tunic fabric was chosen for salwar[Indian pants] .
The sewn tunic –

The close up of the yoke-

The sleeves-

bu or tunic-3

The tailor did a good job on this tunic, I love the shape of the yoke, with two fabrics, it was interesting, to work the positions. With the printed fabric for the centre, the designing was easier.
