Sometime ago, I had this idea of working the same pattern on two fabrics and combine them to use as tunic embellishment. The tunic chosen for this purpose was an ikat cotton fabric.

The pattern was simple with mirror work, that which can be worked with Aari needle too. I worked with the normal # 9 crewel needle. The pattern for the yoke and the sleeves.
