Teal N Red Salwar Kameez

Teal N Red seems to work as color combo?! what do you think? I would never have believed until i finished sewing this salwar kameez. Used the border portion and sewn them up together to form yoke of the tunic.

Front and Back View

The fabric was gifted to me by a relative at a family function. I had a look at the bottom fabric and did not quite like it, so left it in stash and suddently happen to saw, while searching for fabric to test Dhoti pant pattern with, made dhoti pants using them, then guess what ....

I saw the top fabric and fell in love with it, had to make a tunic and used the pattern drafted for sister's b'day dress and tweaked it a bit to add pleats at center front at waistline instead of flared hemline as i had narrow fabric at hand!

Tried cowl sleeves (less fabric, so limited cowl only possible!) and voila the tunic was something i fell in love with and flaunted it hot off the sewing machine.

Here are the snaps...

Cowl Sleeves

Dhoti Salwar (I wish i had sewn churidhaar with lot of gathers at ankle as that would fit this tunic perfectly, never mind will buy a red knit churidhaar to go with this top!)

Meanwhile Tutorial for Dhoti Pant / Cowl Pant is getting reading, will post it soon, hopefully by tomorrow.
