Indian Women's Clothing

I was diverting myself these days a bit. Was drawing for a couple of evenings, using soft-tip pens, it’s much quicker than using water colour. I just wanted to make quick sketches of colour matches and patterns. I must say I wasn’t very much precise with outlines, so please don’t search for symmetry.))

Those are basic types of Indian women's clothing, as for styles they vary in various regions.
Most of all there are lehenga-choli-dupatta (lehenga is long skirt, choli is short skin-tight blouse, dupatta is a sort of scarf). I like their fashion and for sure they look much simpler to wear than sarees.

Three sarees (blue with light-blue (Southern drapery), emerald and yellow with light-blue).

With  puffy trousers, salwar – salwar-kameez.

With skin-tight trousers, churidaar, draped on ankles – churidaar-kurti.
