Fly stitch and Button hole stitch in churidhar tops

This is the neck design of the tops.  I have used palistrina knot for the neck line. And used fly stitch inside the two lines.  Added cut beads for the bottom neck line. You can find the tutorials for the fly stitch and palistrina knot in the website www.embroidery.rocksea.org

This design I have taken from the blog http://sadalas.blogspot.com which she has given under the title kashmiri designs.  I have changed the design a bit for me to be comfortable.
The inspiration behind this work is Sara of www.embroidery.rocksea.org and Lakshmi of www.sadalas.blogspot.com.  Thanks to both of them though I didn't know them in person.

This  is the completed tops.

Close up of the design.
