My pink and gold beaded choli which I’ve sewn and embroidered myself.
I’ve used pink cotton fabric; gold trim and gold thread; seed beads in pearl white, gold, opaque and transparent orange; and big and small golden sequins.
The choli is inspired from the green beaded and sequined choli from the movie Jodhaa Akbar.
The top is sewn by machine; and the embroidery done by hand – except sewing the gold border round the neckline and sleeves, and stitching the ‘squares’ onto the gold trim with golden thread.
It’s a longer choli.
The choli top is laced at back.
Here I’ve also made matching beaded tassels.
Here are pictures of another choli I’ve made.
