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.
Wheat Ear Stitch Embroidery
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.

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.
Green Blouse- Full View
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.

Overall, the blouse looks good and grand.
