Indian tunic/ kurta

Simple A-line dress pattern with slits on both sides. I kept the front neckline simple and clean so that the beautiful embroidery on the front (came with the material)was highlighted. But I decided to get a little stylish at the back with a deep back neckline and a tie. loose fit. I used the leggings/chudidaar material to bind the necklines, sleeve and the front hemline. On top of that i used black cotton hand embroidery thread to create a slight embroidery like stitch.

    Wow, so beautiful. That fabric is divine! The neckline in the back is an awesome dramatic surprise. :)

      Mary, most of the kurtas/tunics used by the local folk have the same pattern and loose fit, they mostly play around with the necklines. Thank you for your comment!
