Anarkali Kurti

I got a few fabrics from India this November. Mostly brocade fabrics which I had planned to sew for my kids for the upcoming festivals. I chose the fabrics based on the favorite colors of my kids. Yet when my kids saw the fabrics, they selected them differently than I thought. Anyhoo, I began sewing anarkali kurti for my elder one who is 12.

The pink fabric was so beautiful, I paired it with some contrast greens which later I would choose for designing. In 2021 I made lehengas for my 12 year old. But she still isn't very comfortable carrying the dupatta. So I started making gowns and anarkalis in the later part of the year. I keep the neck depth not more than 4 inches, that way she need not carry a chunni.
