Chikankari Embroidery - Kurti

This is the embroidered chikan motif which I have embroidered recently.  It is for a kurti top and it has three motif one above the other with regular intervals. 

Here, is the closeup of the motif.

Flowers are done using Bhakya stitch(double herringbone stitch), Stems using Rahet(stem stitch) and the tiny circles using Rozan(Eyelet stitch).

You can see my other work in chikan embroidery here.

I am learning chikan embroidery and planning to post one sample for each stitch. So keep an eye on my blog. 

Happy Embroidering,
Shami Immanuel.

TAST 2012 - A catch up

Since I have some projects in hand I am unable to experiment with the stitches for the past 3 weeks.  As Sharon announced this week as catch up week I have decided to do atleast a sample row of each stitch and I have ended up with this.
Inside flower(red color) is Cast on stitch.  I found it easy after following the video tutorial from needlenthread.   You can find a lot of video tutorials and many more.
Then I have done Pekinese stitch and then tried Sheaf stitch.  Not able to experiment more.  Surely come up with more samples in the days to come.
Happy embroidering.
