Trellis Stitch: Kurthi

I  tried trellis stitch as main stitch for the big flower for this kurthi..stitch didn't come well though..a lesson I learnt is I should try the stitch  on a  cloth before working with a project..trellis stitch is bit difficult with cone thread as the thread unravel fast twist easily.
And Navar work for the butterfly and small flower on the neck part..
The other stitches are balloon work, long and short stitch, stem stitch, french knots, herringbone stitch, mogga guttu..
For trellis stitch I have used cone thread and the rest of the stitches are done with silk thread.

Net Work: Kurthi

I did net work on this cotton kurthi. In telugu this stitch is familiar with the name vala kuttu. Vala means net. The stitch is variation of buttonhole stitch.
For the flowers I have used 2 strands of shaded silk thread. Long and short stitch for leaves   with 2 strands of shaded silk thread. Stem stitch for stem.
I started to stitch this dress for me but gifted to my niece when she visited looks best on her.
