Kasuti border for sleeves

Today this post is to show you the sleeves which I have embroidered using kasuti embroidery.  This is a matching sleeve for the yoke and border which I have blogged about it here and here.  It is very simple with a single motif.  Have a look.

This is the closeup of the sleeves.

Hope all of you like.  I have completed the embroidery for this kurti and it has to go for stitching.  I will show the stitched kurti once it is done.  

In my coming posts I am ready to show u some of my crocheted items.  So do watch my space.

kasuti motif for border

This is the motif which I have embroidered for the border for a kurti.  I have used three strands of anchor embroidery cotton thread.  

It took 20 mins to embroider the inner yellow motif, 40 mins for the red segment, nearly 1 hr for the green segment and 1 hr and 30 mins for the outer yellow segment. Totally 3 1/2 hrs is needed to embroider this single motif.

I have done three such motif and they are here.  I have to separate each motif and then attach to a red color silk cotton fabric.  My tailor should do it properly.

Now the closeup

The matching yoke for this kurti is here.

Now I am embroidering the sleeves for this kurti.  I will come up with the sleeves after completing it. So watch my space.  Waiting for your feedbacks.
