Chikankari Embroidery motif

I have started to do a project on my kurti using chikankari design.  I have completed one motif at the bottom.  I have used double back stitch, Eyelet stitch, Detached chain variation and satin stitch.  There are specific name for these stitches in chikankari but I have given the english names.  In the coming posts I will be giving details about this work.


This is the chikan motif which I have embroidered during stitch along with Anita of artisticfingers. Take at look at the motif here.

Here is another motif which I have done for a kurti  

 Happy embroidering.
