Last year I have embroidered 2 kasuti kurtis and was happy with the outcome. It is very simple but the kurti was looking elegant. This year I have planned to do embroidery for others and the first one is for my co sister. I am planning to do this design from the day I have purchased the book from Mridulas and atlast the day arrived on the mid of march. And yesterday I have completed embroidering it yoke and borders for the sleeves.
I have used three strands of anchor embroidery thread three colors and used kasuti net to stitch. Happy that the result is more beautiful than I expected. Now over to the embroidery. Click on the image to get a more clear image.

Border for the sleeves.
This is how I worked kasuti embroidery with net. First I attach the net to the fabric, then do the embroidery and at last I removed the net.
You can view my other kasuti works here.
Now I can concentrate on the embroidery on my saree. Also trying hardanger and more on zentangling and enjoying doodling. Will come up with some other FO. Till then happy embroidering.
