“Tonight, we cooked fish”

When I have a needle in my hand, a set of silver sequin, few golden ‘dabka’ and a sheer chiffon garment, this is how the series of events occurs.

1.  I didn’t mean to pick this garment from the flea market.

2.  I wasn’t aware I liked dazzling sequins.

3.  I was never meant to stitch this.

4.  I don’t know why I took this photograph.

But, it happened.

Cuz, eating fish at home is not the only thing that I had asked for.

(and it dazzled)

    I am studying fashion design and this was one of my embroidery projects 😀

    We also made small samples exploring in our own n all and this was our final project where I had to do some kind of surface development on a plain garment. I went ahead with zardozi ‘cuz I love it too… the shimmer and metal touch to a sheer fabric makes this plain grey garment so alive 😀
