The colour of the silk tunic is a mixture of blue and green. This combination is a favourite of people fond of kanjeevaram silk. I had a silk saree in this combination with maroon/pink border. The tunic-

The pattern was drawn with the idea of incorporating sequins and beads on it. The pattern for yoke-

Silk threads in dark pink and medium blue, gold metallic threads were used for the embroidery. The embroidered yoke-

The tailor had cut and given me the central panel and sleeves to work the embroidery. After I finished the pattern, the tailor made it into a tunic. Actually I bought this colour for a stole, but the tunic does not match with the stole now. I had worn this tunic with leggings, but I want to wear a pink patiala salwar for this.
Since the embroidery was done with silk threads, it resembles the aari work done on blouses. The aari work on blouses are more intricate and more number of beads are also worked on the projects. It is fashionable to wear these blouses.
