Fabric : Select fabric type
Costume for Kathak dancers. Good quality fabric with border. Salwar Kameez with jacket.
Kathak Costume : The design is akin to a chudiddar kameez, but is somewhat tighter fitting above the waist, and the 'skirt' portion explicitly cut on the round to enhance the flare of the lower half during spins. The skirt may also be cut on the round but beginning just below the bust; this style is known as "Annarkali" after the eponymous dancer who popularised it. Beneath the top, the legs are covered by the chudidaar or figure hugging trousers folded up giving the look of cloth bangles.
