I love colours; but more than that, I love the absence of them. I am in love with white, and black too. Its like an empty canvas and you can paint it whichever way you want.
Sometimes, I see a fabric and I will know what it will turn into. Other times, I would have no idea and buy the fabric anyway. Its a similar case with this white one. I had had it for a long time before its fate was sealed; and this too, only because I needed a dress for a brunch we were hosting at home!
Its a very simple cut and make and I did not take any in-process photographs 🙁
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.
So I recently made an Indian inspired kurti/dress and had some leftovers from the lovely white material. Left with only triangular pieces, I dug out some lace to make a comfy blouse for the tropical weather.
The material was bit difficult to handle so I had to hand-stitch the edges before machine stitches.
