The idea was, to embroider neckline and yoke with large and medium round mirrors.This yoke fabric was indigo blue with small stripes in black, which was perfect.

Embroidery details-
The spaces in between the mirror placements were embroidered in Cretan stitch filling in yellow colour of the tunic fabric.
