But first, an edit for last post – the colorway is Prometheus Moth (thanks, Sandy!)
The anniversary was lovely, and we both overate. We have been to Fanoos now, though, and it is lovely. I plan on repeating that experience (but with hookas and around the short tables next time).
And there was fabric shopping! Progress on the Mughal garb continues. I have gotten it mostly to where it fits, although now I’m trying to figure out how it should fasten so that I can remove it (it is very fitted and if I stitch the front seam, I will be unable to put it on/take it off). But it is progressing. I am hoping to get it finished by Twelfth Night. Ha. We shall see. At any rate, I have all the fabric I need:
The red is the top, the gold will be striped churidar (I have a picture of this and it will be awesome, but I may have to be creative with the cutting and sewing as they only had 2 yards of fabric left), and the medallions will be a coat. I am really really excited to get this done. I will have to shop and find some white wool for a dupatta/shawl. Gail K was closed yesterday, though, so I’ll have to do that later.
Wheeee. I’ve never been so excited about garb, like, ever.
