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.
