This is a vintage lengha, approx. 25 years old. Brand new and unworn.
The kameez is long sleeved and made of pure silk, it is embellished with little gold beads and has lots of fine gold thread work embroidery. It has hook and eye fastenings to the front and has loops and draw cords at the back to adjust the size.
The skirt is a full circle skirt which drapes from a dropped waist so you don’t get that bulkiness at your waist. It is elasticated with hook and eye fastenings to the side. The elastic will need to be replaced as it has perished a little so not as stretchy.
It comes with a pure silk dupatta finished with gold embroidery around the outer edges and small hand stitched single sequins.
Brand new in excellent condition.
