I liked this printed Patiala salwar in soft cotton.

For this a maroon woven ikat in cotton was chosen as tunic fabric.
The idea was to have a simple embroidery on yoke. The pattern-

I used variegated thread to work this embroidery with back stitches, seeing it was too simple, a few red stones were added in the centre.

I liked the neckline of this tunic-

If more number of strands were used for this work, it would have made the embroidery look more prominent.
