For small to medium gathering ladies choose White shalwar kameez fabric that is not lawn instead cotton or other fabrics such as silk or chiffon. Light embroidery is often used on the chest and bottom front of kameez but not too heavy. Mostly hand embroidery is preferred but machine work on Shalwar Kameez is just as good these days.
For large gathering heavy sequence work that is done by hand or heavy embroidery is used on Kameez (front and back). Heavy work on borders of dupetta is also used and worn with Shalwar Kamez. These types of shalwar kameez are worn in marriage ceremonies.
