    Hi,
    Can you please tell me what all the kinds of stiches I can use for this design? I asked my sister to print a simple design and she got this one and it looks too much work now.

    Lines: Chain or Stem Stich
    Flowers: Lazy Daizy or something else?
    Leaves and those small flowers?
    And those lines around leaves: Chain or Stem Stich?
    Center of flowers: stick kundans or do french knots.

    It would be really helpful if you could ease my problem of embroidering this big design.

    Yes, you can do stem stich on outlines,small flowers , leaves with close heringbone stich and the center of the flowesin french knot and if you like to have little glamour to the saree you can use kundan stores, hope this suggestion eases your time consuming emb tension.
    cheers

    Nakshthrai second with sharada's suggestion..
    if i were not wrong I remeber you have posted one beautiful saree with kutch work...and told u have done one more saree with a design of knee length..
    why dont you try a small bit with pachis stitch on kutch work design or half kutch work(we call it jilebi work)..but be sure if pachis sttich goes well with the design(since saree is pleasing pure silk saree?)

    you can also do fly stitch for leaves
    dharwadi work for the design in betwen ther leaves..
    if u consider time factor french knots takes much time..
    you can go for kundan work..
