So i happened to discover a fabric shop today just near where i live. I was looking for some cheaper options to silk for muslin fitting. I managed to get cheaper versions of silk dupioni, silk cotton, plain silk poly blend, tissue silk etc. Since i wanted something with a good drape for flared lehenga i feel that really thin silk cotton should do. I already have decided on the fabric for blouse – floral print: twill cotton
Since it was an unexpected discovery i did not have the blouse fabric for selecting the colors. The guy at the shop gave me tiny swatches for me t take back home and check. I have also upgraded my initial design a bit to have green trims for the sleeve and hence came back home with dark green trims I found. Sadly the trims’ color dint match up so am gonna have to buy new trims.
And here is a glimpse of my current moodboard for the project:
See you tomorrow with more details on fabric, embellishment and pattern details. Babye!
