The blouse is made of a cream banarsi brocade, it is heavily embellished in a variety of beads and sequins in varying shapes and sizes as well as lots of really fine dhabka and kundan work. It has integrated breast pads.
This comes with a pure silk chiffon sari, it has the pleats sewn in and fastens with hooks, the petticoat is not attached but is included. This too has masses of detailing along the palla and borders, the reverse side is edges in a wide organza braid to prevent snagging.
This has been worn and is in excellent condition, this was bought for £225 new.
