Tunic cut like an A-line dress,made of cotton, shiny on one side, material already had embroidery on the part meant to be the front, with a band of embroidered flowers at the bottom(it was sewn on), but since it was not wide enough for my pattern, I unpicked it and made my own design, by applique-ing ;-) i think!! I used the band i removed from the bottom for the sleeves. the neck took ages to finish. tunic is fully lined with one by two cotton, pre-washed. All in all i spent some more time on this dress,(mostly figuring out what to do and how to) which according to my mom is “unnecessary” but I am happy with the outcome. For the tassels,I had this idea in my mind from some time, which I finally made now. The leggings, same shiny cotton, with gathering around the ankle,as usual cut on bias. .
