Sorry, I was in a rush. Now that I'm back, thoroughly wet after a session in my son's garden, unable to escape Eva and the hose pipe....... I'm attaching a flat shot, a not so flat shot, and a detail. This type of Arabic / Indian dress is called a 'Farasha'. I think farasha means butterfly in Arabic. I luckily don't live too far away from parts of Nottingham and Leicester where there are a lot of Asian shops, and the fabrics and clothes are wonderful, not as boring as the average Western European stuff. So, here you are (should be 'clickable' this time). :)

Every other year, on the last day before the summer break, my school has a 'carnival' day, full of games and activities. There is always a theme and everybody (students and staff) have to dress up. The theme for this year is 'Characters From Books'. Mmmmhhhh........ I can't see myself as Ophelia, Alice in Wonderland, or The Hobbit, But I did fleetingly think of making a very basic linen kaftan, get a very large toy hammer and a tool belt and wander around school, shouting: 'Noah, where are you? We have to build another Ark! It's going to rain!'

To my utter delight though I managed to sort out something different, and I'm going to carry the book, just in case anybody wants me to tell them a story (giggle). Because I'm 7 stone lighter I actually manage to get into this dress (but only just). The beadwork is amazing and actually much too nice for a school carnival. But I'm sure that this will be my last one before I retire, so I have pushed out the boat....... Meet "Sheherezade's Grandmother - Straight out of 1001 Arabian Nights" :)
