The One About The Kurti and Patiala


While waiting for my pick up from the bus stand this weekend, I found myself staring directly across the road at a thrift shop with a banner stating 50% off. Now what better way to wait than to wait while shopping. I have found numerous treasures in thrift stores, but never before had I come across Indian patiala pants and that too costing only 5FJD. So I ended up buying 4, I surely would have dug out more if time permitted.

Once home I set to make a kurti to go with these pants 🙂


I used decoration stitches for the sleeves and the neck design. Since I want to use this kurti with multiple pants, I thought to keep it as generic as possible therefore avoided using coloured thread.
