Chiffon lehengas often have petticoats. My lehenga has a yellow chiffon petticoat with a wide ruffle at the hem.

The lehenga is embroidered with three gold sequin motifs.

This gold sequined motif was my main inspiration. Here’s a similar sequined motif on a vintage dupatta, and a sequin motif on a lehenga.

I drew my design based on the printed motif. I used beige polyester fabric for the motifs. I sealed the edges over a candle flame to prevent fraying, then I starched the motifs so the embroidering would be easier. For the embroidery I used large gold sequins and gold embroidery thread, and cut out and appliqued shapes of the gold ribbon which I also used for the hem of the skirt.
