|She said lots of the young people don't know how to do the pleating anymore so that the whole|

everything stayed where it should be!
|On the wall where it looks like spools of thread, it's actually bangles, and you buy them buy the dozen!!|
|The tops and shirts are very fancy with lots of bead work.|
|This sari had rich gold embroidery on it.|
|This one had lots of sparkle and beading. The colors and cloth is rich and beautiful.|
|This is a top l had made (don't know if l'll ever wear it but was fun) The top is called a kameez and the loose fitting pants are called shalwar. The dupatta or scarf is always worn with this |
type of outfit.
|The lady on the right is the owner of the shop, and stopped in for a visit, I think mostly to see|
about this westerner who was interested in their clothes!!
|This piece of cloth l had made into two different tops. Thank goodness for Vivian because no on speaks|
English here! My Punjabi is as nonexistent as my Cantonese!
