Rose pink heavy wedding lengha – RRP £850 UK Size 14 /EU Size 40 - preloved
The blouse is made of of a shimmering rose pink & gold silk crepe, it is heavily embellished in a combination of dhabka, wirework, zardosi, beads and masses of sparkling diamante stonework. It has a concealed zip fitting at the back. Please note there is some slight discolouring under the arms where the embellishment has rubbed against the fabric causing it to pli a little and also removing the gold sheen. This is not noticeable and will not be seen when worn. The choli is lined in a rich sateen however this does have quite a few pulls on the inside where the inside has rubbed against the skirt waist embellishment causing the threads to pull. Again this will not be seen.
Lengha skirt is embellished really heavily both front and back. It has a thin draw cord through the waistband which can be used to secure it as well as a side zip fitting. The ties have beaded latkans however one set is missing. The inside is lined in sateen with an 8” long pleated net underskirt to provide the skirt with flare.
A small area of the the inside waist band will need hand stitching as come undone.
Dupatta is made of fine net, it has a very wide embellished border all the way around. It is embellished with small dusky pink fabric coloured balls all along the ends with longer beaded latkans in each corner however one of these is missing. The reverse edge is trimmed with soft pink sateen silk. Please note this does have a few loose threads.
This was bought for £850. The price reflects the quality and the hand worked embellishment on the outfit.
Pre-loved in very good condition, as detailed the sateen silk lining does have some pulls as a consequence of them catching on the embellishment work. This is not visible externally.
