The colour of this georgette fabric is a mixture of maroon and dark blue. Because of this it looks like violet. But the colour varies under different lights. It  has zari dots all over. I felt, to embellish this tunic, metallic gold was vital. Instead of working with it, the yoke fabric was itself gold colour satin fabric.

A simple traditional Indian pattern was drawn for this embroidery.

On reflection, I could have refrained from using the dark pink beads. They are too big for this work with silk threads. They are really popping out of the embroidery. It was done in the last leg, when I was keen to finish the work, rather than search for other suitable embellishments. This tunic being quite festive looking, maybe I can wear a net dupatta [scarf] to subdue the effect.  And I learnt a lesson.
