  1. This summary has been invaluable to me! My daughter is going to a Garba with a friend tomorrow and I know not the first thing about any of the traditional clothing. I was overwhelmed and under informed and you saved me for sure!

  2. Appreciate your instructions.
    Can we keep the opening in the front in a Princess cut blouse.
    If we can should we incorporate the 9-9′ step. Kindly clarify.
    Thank you for the wonderful blog so painstakingly done.
