I have a fondness for  ethnic woven scarfs and dupattas which are available in some shops in Chennai, India. The range of these type of accessories is endless. Once in a while, overcome by temptation, I pick up a few pieces. This is one such  tussar silk dupatta.

I bought a white silk crepe fabric with satin flowers as tunic fabric to be matched with this dupatta.

A simple pattern inspired by the design on the dupatta was drawn for neck and sleeves. The embroidery was done a white cotton fabric.
