I’ve been very inspired by this wonderful embroidery. I have found several of these Indian outfits which feature this work. I can imagine they are custom-made and the embroidery is hand done. I did a bit of research and found out it’s called Zardosi. A metal thread is used so the fabric has some weight when it’s all embroidered. I find these at my local thrift shop. I was able to make three doll dresses with this one. I added some beautiful trim I bought at Mokuba. The trim is always the expensive part. I hate crappy lace. I think My girls look so lovely in them.
