After working a broad bagh embroidery border for copper tussar silk tunic, I wanted to work the same on a simple neckline. The embroidery itself is very simple. The pattern for this embroidery around the neck.

I gave these to my dear friend Sita, when I was in Chennai. She liked it and wears it quite often too. An happy project!
