My daughter is taking part in an exchange programme with and Indian school and this is my present from my guest daughter: two beautiful Indian fabrics directly from Bangalore. The rose print on green is a light cotton, the paisley fabric is an almost transparent white and the paisleys are woven in, not printed, in a metallic brown with a golden shimmer in the light. It’s a traditional hand-woven Indian fabric, unfortunately I don’t remember the name.
Isn’t that a fantastic present! You can imagine how pleased I was to receive such a thoughtful present!
Now what to make out of the fabrics? The pink on green screams maxi-dress, don’t you think? And the white one needs to become something quite simple so as to showcase the wonderful pattern. I think pleats or lots of darts etc would only detract from it.
And how to finish? Because the fabric is see-through I need some sort lining. Or maybe just a slip underneath? Do you have any thoughts or ideas?
Any comments are gratefully received!
