Short tops

I stitched three salwar kameez in the last three days and today I stitched this.This is a princess cut design and it has been a  long time(really long time) since I stitched this pattern.I have the paper cutting for this and so it was easy on the cutting part.But an A line design is very easy compared to this,no extra cutting or stitching:).

Short tops

I have been stitching all these days and finished these tops as well as three Salwar Kameez.Back breaking.As we are planning to leave to the US in March I have a lot to complete.I am also going to stitch some frocks for my grand daughter.I will post it as and when I finish it.In between trying to complete all the incomplete projects in embroidery also.I made a collage of all the tops and here it is......The red and the green next to it is altered from salwar top which didn't fit my daughter..:)

Due to the collage I created the first one is repeated in the end also.

Short tops neck

This is for the neck part.Actually I was planning to stitch a collar for this and it completely slipped out of my mind.Hereafter I am thinking of drawing the pattern for the dress in a paper and insert it in the corresponding materials.That way I think I can cut the material accordingly.And one more blunder happened.While doing the embroidery I accidentally  cut a small nick below the ribbon and thats why the extra strip.(extra work too)

Short tops

We went to my brothers house in Chennai for Deepavali and had a gala time with my relatives.After the festive season I went to shop in T.Nagar (Chennai) for poly cotton material which is not available in my place.This is one of the material for a short top for my daughter.First I thought of stitching it as a simple Kurti and ended up doing some light embroidery.The maroon color is ribbon but not satin( I don't know the material).I washed a bit to check for the bleeding of colour.It was great.So thought of using as a border.I did simple lazy daisy stitch and some sequins. This is the sleeve part and for the neck part also I am going to repeat the same.May be with a bit more embellishment.
