Chiffon fabric is used in the Indian area for many reasons. This fabric is the best for embellishing Lehenga sarees since it is light and smooth, it can be easily stitched and it drapes well. A thin piece of chiffon fabric is folded and then put through the needle holes, the open edges are sewn, and then tied with a short string.
The color of the fabric may vary from cream to khaki. The basic thread used in Lehenga sarees is jute or cotton. It is decorated with eyelets to add a touch of flair to the Lehenga saree. For embroidery threads, the looped chiffon fabric can be kept aside, the curved design is made, and then it is filled with embroidery thread. It is necessary to use the same color thread on both sides to ensure a nice finish. The woven designs on the Lehenga saree are done using embroidery threads.
These designs are done by inserting threads of the same color into one hand, and then drawing the pattern of a drawing with the other hand. One can also use a plastic bag to draw designs. After the drawing, the cloth is folded again, so that it forms a letter “J”. It is recommended to get the color scheme right before one goes ahead with the designs.
