indian pink cream gold sequin chiffon lehenga

For my pink, cream and gold sequin chiffon lehenga choli I used white, pink and yellow chiffon, golden taffeta fabric, gold ribbon, gold sequins, and gold thread for the lehenga (the skirt). My inspiration was this pretty bridal lehenga (at about 3:00).

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

I embroidered the lehenga with three DIY 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 and 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.

For the dupatta (the veil) I used pink chiffon. The dupatta is trimmed with the same gold ribbon and gold sequins as the lehenga. And for the choli (blouse) I used pink cotton fabric and trimmed it with gold ribbon and sequins.
