The salwar and I have a long and complicated love-hate relationship. The Salwar is a lovely garment; I love the way it looks and the pleats of a Patiala salwar gracefully fanning out, one on top of another, is a piece of tailoring art. However, I am mildly scarred from childhood memories of trying to use a restroom wearing a salwar. The nalla has a nasty habit of slipping inside its nalla home (is there a name for that fold that holds the nalla?) and then you are left there, holding your salwar and dignity in your bare hands! No matter, I forgive it every time because it is beautiful and every once in a while you decide to buy/have an outfit made that screams, “Salwar is the only way to go here”! That is precisely what happened with this Salwar Kameez. I feel in love with the various materials and bought them. Subsequently, I went to my machine embroidery man and he happened to show me a roses pattern that was incredibly pretty. By the time I had purchased the trim and got to the tailor, I knew it had to be a salwar! As always, thanks for reading!
