I have been seeing a trend of two or three fabrics mixed and matched to be sewn together as a tunic top. Some are really attractive, especially the handloom cotton fabrics in bright colours. With this idea in mind, I very cautiously bought two cotton fabrics in brown.
This fabric is handloom cotton with squares similar to gingham fabric.

The other one is soft hand woven cotton with yellow and copper lines crossing each other.

I wanted to embellish this tunic with antique gold sequins and beads. For that, this yoke pattern was drawn. I chose a pink block printed mangalagiri fabric with zari border for yoke. the zari border was  ideal for the sleeves.
