Dhoti Pant aka Cowl Pant

I have wanted to make Dhoti pants for self (for almost more than 2 years now!!!!, that's the speed at which i stitch for self), ever since i made a Cowl pant (the same pant is also known as 'Samosa' pant!) for DD, check this post for viewing the same. Read an article this Monday about Dhoti pants being a rage in chennai currently, with a lead actress flaunting it. I decided to make it at last and did it ! wish i had done this long back, its always better late than never, isn't it?

I wore it to pick my DD up from school (it was hot off the sewing machine!) and since she had not seen the outfit, i was curious to know her reaction. Guess what , she frowned and my heart sank! I asked her what's wrong with the outfit, she said she liked the pants, but not the combination and suggested me to wear a white top with it, which i did , in the evening and here are the shots!
