Many days this salwar fabric was lying on my closet without any design ideas. This fabric is kalamkari block printed cotton.
A plain peach mercerized cotton fabric matched with the paisley outlines. A plain tunic gives opportunity for embroidery.
A simple embroidery pattern for the front of the tunic with an idea of herringbone filling was drawn. The embroidery was worked with cotton skeins. Maroon and shades of green thread were used for herringbone filling stitches. The outlines were done in beige thread [salwar fabric colour] in back stitch. Small wooden beads were used for embellishing the inner border.
When I wear this set, the tunic seems to outshine the salwar. The vegetable dyes fabrics tend to look dull, but are really cool [I mean for summer]
