My mother’s wedding dress

One of the first things I did in Pakistan was make my Khala (aunt) find the old suitcases with all my mom’s wedding clothes in them. What’s better than playing dress up with your mom’s vintage wedding wear?! Her dress was made of a heavy tissue material which when reflecting the light looked various shades of deep pink rose. The “Gota” Appliqué on it was hand done herself! It was so fun to be able to try on what my mom wore on her own wedding, here’s a pic of her lengha (dress):
