Upcycled and embellished vintage embroidered bodice from Afghanistan.  Added details include silk embroidery trims, chenille trim on the arms, and massive fringes around the waist.  Fits a size S- M easily, over-the-head entrance only.

Original bodice dates from the early 20th century, and the Singkiang customization from 2020. This was a piece from my own collection, worn proudly for years! 

The paired embroidery is a beautiful textile skirt (parha) from the Memon or Lohana Community, Tharparkar, Sindh, Pakistan, or Banni Kutch, Gujarat.  [The Memon people have cultural similarities with the Khoja, Khatri, and Gujarati peoples.] Wrapped around our model as a skirt, it can be customized as a proper skirt for an added fee.
