Dress material with Whear Ear Stitch Embroidery

Hi All, 

The  salwar material is kind of silk cotton and I have embroidered on the bottom and the neck part. I liked the colour very much, it is a double shaded material with dark blue and red with a shine. I have attempted Wheat Ear stitch on this one with Iron on stones in the intersection.

I was having a dress similar to this having bead work in the bottom part and I wanted to add beads to the wheat ear stitch. The original dress had Black Beads on  Red colour base. But for this material which has a light shine, beads were not suiting,I checked for slightly bigger Red stones but that was making the embroidery dull so finally settled with white stones.

The Neck part I made it similar to the lower Part.

For this dress, I used an existing red colour bottom(pant) and a matching colour duppata. Even the dupatta was old one so I added the same type stones to it to match with the dress.

Have a look at the pictures and let me know your views.

Blouse with Kundan Works

Hi All,
Previously I did Kundan work on one of my blouse.The link is https://nsangheetha.wordpress.com/2010/07/11/upgrading-a-blouse/.
I liked the idea, it is very simple as the embroidery required is very less and it is more of sticking the Kundans and stitching them.
So I tried the same method again in one of my another blouse.

The saree is Yellow body colour with Green border.
In the blouse, I did 2 parallel rows of chain stitch around the neckline.Then kind of filled with wavy line of chain stitch.Around it, I did a row of Cretan Stitch.

The Embroidery was very simple and then I stuck round Kundans inside the chain stitch and Cretan stitch rows.
Then the tear drop shaped Kundans are stuck as an outline or border of the embroidery.
