The embroidered piece was given to the tailor for sewing,
As mentioned on my previous post, the salwar [Indian style pants] was a glossy printed black and gold fabric.

The printed salwar and the yoke match well together. The embroidery did not take much time and I have worn it a few times. Fully satisfied with this set.
