I found this kasouti pattern on local pattern book, and wanted to use on a tunic.
The picture taken is of the last piece of this tunic set.
I had a dullred striped mangalagiri with beige border.I used the pattern for neck and and front.It was a long project!
The embroidery was done in beige and cream.I completed the embroidery, and later found a plain grey duppata[scarf] to go with it I wonder why?  At that time, I was in the mode of accesserising all my tunics with scarves

My sister in law liked this set very much.[ though,she liked the duppatta more than the tunic]

Imagination is the key factor here, with this picture, which will give life to our vision[quite poetic for me]
