Kuala Lumpur, Ma...
Today was the engagement of my sister’s best friend from school. So i thought of making her a new outfit to glow in. The fabric is similar one which i had stitched Angrakha for my SIL
Since i had only a day (read 4 sewing hours to make do with) i decide to make Angrakha itself as the fabric drapes well for this style. But made slight changes in the drape.
Angrakha is one of the earliest outfits which were worn by Maharajas. Now they are making a fashionable comeback. I am loving it…. I really really want to make one for self (i always give last priority for outfit for self, want to do something about it…)
The trim that is used here was bought for Rs.4 a mere and is worth every rupee spent on it. The trim inspired to work more with it than just as usual neck and sleeve embellishment, so started by placing it on the wrap of angrakha freehand, and let my mind waver here and there and ta da…. there is the result for you to see. I really like the effect, it adds jazz to the outfit but is defintely not over the top and that is what i call subtle elegance.
More of this on my blog for those interested …. Comments welcome….
Georgette with brasso like effect , really can’t explain the fabric, it feels like georgette and has crushed effect and velvet patches on it…
