Salwar Kameez


Salwar Kameez

My grandmother, knowing how much I like pretty doll clothes, sent me this doll for my birthday!  She is dressed in a traditional Asian Indian outfit (which I didn’t make :)) called a Salwar Kameez.

First there’s a tunic, which is sometimes slit up the sides to about the waist (this doll’s top isn’t slit–it’s closed like a dress).  Underneath are worn loose pants that are tightened at the ankle.  A dupatta (long rectangle of cloth like a shawl) completes the outfit.  There are many different ways to wear a dupatta; I just draped this one over the doll’s shoulder and put in a few stitches at the side to hold it.

Indian clothing often contains many beautiful, vibrant, complementary colors and patterns, and this outfit is no exception!

The doll is accessorized with a gold necklace, bangles, and earrings.
