Feathered chain stitch is a beautiful decorative stitch, a hybrid of feather stitch and long tailed daisy.
This can be used to embroider leaf vines and borders.
The stitch is worked from left to right in a zig - zag pattern. To be simple, long tailed daisy is worked as if working a feathered stitch.
Feathered chain stitch is a highly textured stitch, so can be used for bands and borders.
After several trial and error , I found this easy way of stitching.

2. Do a long tailed daisy from the outer line along the zig- zag pattern.
long tailed daisy - start a chain stitch and finish it with an extended tail.
3.The next daisy tail is angled about 45 degrees.
4. Continue stitches along the zig zag pattern.
The final pattern looks like this
