The embroidery on this mirror yoke is further worked in blue and yellow .
The small triangle shapes around the mirrors were filled with chain stitches in medium blue colour.

The mirrors are always worked in the last stage, because it is difficult to work with embroidery loop after working the mirrors. The mirror shapes are outlined in chain stitch in lemon yellow thread.[my idea at this stage was to buy a yellow printed fabric for the tunic]

I couldn’t get the right fabric in blue or yellow for this yoke, tried swing towards white with black prints and settled at last on dark green ikat fabric with blue and yellow streaks on its weave. I was not sure whether this fabric will suit the young girl, but she loved it and I was happy!
