My First Moghul Garb

I first made this about 9 years ago. However,I rushed to finish it and set the sleeves wrong and it never fit well. I wore it twice, after I made it. It's been in the closet ever since. I recently decided to bring it back out and fix it. I reset the sleeves, so the garment fits comfortably and added the ties at the side. The ties are correct to the style; whereas, the velcro that was there previously was not. I also constructed a pair of pyjamas (pants) from instructions given in "Costumes of the Rulers of Mewar." I just made the earrings and the pagdi (turban ornaments). I felt they were necessary to complete the ensemble.
