Bling! Yes More Bling! Bring it on! Some more Bling!



The material which was gifted to my sister by her colleagues was full of sequin work and looked jazzy. Hence i downplayed the design part and made it simple with patch work at front and back neckline.

Front neckline patch is actually very delicate and minute. Backneck is bit broader so to say. Sleeve has been hemmed with bottom fabric contrast (not piping)

Salwar a.k.a the bottom material was floral motif and the salwar kameez set also has a matching chiffon shawl a.k.a Dupatta.


Pics without further delay.




In case you would like to see Patchwork on the neckline and more pics of this project - http://adithisammasews.blogspot.com/2010/01/bling-bling-salwar-kameez-fast-track.html

Action Shot - Excuse my daughter in the sidelines, she wouldn't budge!!!






Thanks for view. Comments welcome

beautiful--always a nice idea to play up a gorgeous fabric with clean, classic simple lines...

omg--just can't stop staring at the detail bling in the fabric...

you did a great job also of making it a complete outfit with the floral salwar

love to see the whole outfit together with the dupatta!

Thanks for the comments.
Have requested my sister to take a snap when she gets to wear it tomorrow. will post the pic once i get my hands to it.

Also made a scrunchie to go with the outfit at the last minute as she couldn't find a suitable one to tie up plait (to show-off the patchwork at the back neckline!) as she normally lets her hair down.  Smiley
