Hi all, this post is long awaited and part 3 of my Pakistani articles.
This article is dedicated to Pakistani clothing and its beauty. The outfits and dresses that are made in Pakistan can be elegant and vibrant – in some instances very extravagant. The outfits are intricate, sometimes embroidered or embellished with the most amazing sequins. Breathtaking comes to mind. It really depends on the look, colour and fabric. The more designer, the more beautiful. In most cases, the more expensive too!
There is a lot of variety in Pakistan and you can browse designs in the shops. You can also check out designs on the internet. If you really want to save money and not spend too much, its best to get the outfit designed locally, which is bespoke as such but can be a copy of whatever design you want. So you don’t have to spend the designer money as it were.
I saw some beautiful outfits while browsing on the internet. So there were choices to be made. I came up with a few outfits that I would like to be made and sent them to my sister-in-law who was out there in Pakistan. She also sent me a few to choose from. Incidentally, she chose the ones that got made in the end. Basically, it was a risk, because I wasn’t there, but my sister-in-law did a great job, in choice, the design and the cloth that she choose and I must say that the outfit was really like the one in the picture.
It’s always fun dressing up, especially for a wedding and if it is a close one, than the more better. I wore the dress at the wedding and I got a lot of compliments for it. The colour of the original was orange, but I chose to have the dress made in a sea green colour and I must say I love it!
I got another one also made, but as I haven’t worn this yet. I will wait to reveal it!
Here are the pictures!

And here is mine – (I’m not as slim as the lady in the photo) ha ha.
