I had earlier worked a plain green tunic with zardoai work. I think I am fond of green and gold combination. This green tunic fabric is mangalagiri cotton with stripes.

The  idea was to work a separate border on a golden yellow fabric for the sleeves and a small yoke pattern on the tunic. Chain stitches were used throughout this project. Antique gold beads and sequins were used. Threads were anchor cotton skeins and metallic.
The width of the borders was 8cms. Since this work was done on yellow fabric, the colours used were brown and green[s].starting with the dark brown colour. This was the colour of the stripes on the tunic fabric.
