A stunning blue-green benarasi Punjabi wedding lehenga with heavy hand- embroidered dabka work. It has a semi-circle drawstring skirt, a de chine jacket-style tunic with back lacing, and an oversize wrap shawl. The dabka is worked with fine-gauge wire that is wrapped so evenly that many sections look like beads rather than coiled wire. The outfit is quite heavy.
The tunic is made of a peacock green shot gold art crepe de chine. The front of the tunic has a hook-and-eye closure. The lacing in the back can take the blouse in up to 6" through the lower bust and midriff for a perfect fit. The shawl is a brocade, heavily embroidered all over. The stitching to keep the fringe straight in shipping or storage is still there--never removed. The lehenga (skirt) is a matching benarasi organdy, heavily embroidered all around with dabka in paisley and flower patterns. The drawstring is a gold metallic cord with fringed metal thread at the ends. The drawstring can be worn higher or lower on the waist or hip to adjust hem length.
The fabric and embroidery in this vintage wedding lehenga is in excellent condition. The lining in the tunic has faded a bit in a couple of areas. The tunic should fit someone with a body bust measurement from 40" (loose fit) to 42" (snug fit). Care: dry clean only. Fiber: polyester.
