It is getting harder to name the tunics for reference. This tunic fabric is block printed cotton. I am not sure whether it is handloom or not.

I was inspired  seeing some neck patterns with simple shapes filled in one or many colours on some dresses.  To this idea,I also wanted to incorporate mirrors as another element. The result was this neck pattern.

The embroidery was done on black. Cotton strand, silk and metallic threads of same colour was used for embroidery and black thread was used to fix the mirrors. I had one spool of metallic thread of this colour which I started to use, then realized that the spool had given an illusion of lengthy thread. This created an anxiety and doubt of finishing this project with that thread. But it was just sufficient and it also taught me lesson about that particular style of threads. The tunic
