This is the first thing I have made in about 5 years! I promised my sister I would make her an Indian style suit,so here it is!
I wanted to incorporate a bit of western style into the outfit so made the pants slim fit and I also fitted the bodice.
I made split style sleeves and used frog fastenings to add detail.
To embellish the suit, I added beading to the pattern on the scarf and dress and I beaded around the neckline.
I used another pair of pants for the pattern for the salwar (pants) and I made the kameez(dress) freehand.
I bought salwar kameez fabric, this is Indian style material with a matching scarf already to sew, however I added white cotton to the neckline of my suit and also made the pants wth this fabric to add abit more colour to the suit.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
