Finished Turkish Outfit

As promised, finished entari with the rest of the outfit.

1. white cotton gomlek. You can’t tell with the entari over it, but the gomlek is slit from the neck to the waist. The sleeves are extra-long because these are the sleeves that bunch up from the wrist to the elbow.

2. Black cotton pants. I’m cheating, because these are not really salwar but are loose, baggy pants that have a similar look, and they don’t show a whole lot, so I’m not worried about it.

3. The entari itself, in all its recycled glory

4. Silk belt. I’m still figuring out what the belt situation should look like, but this is what I have for now.

Historical note: the front corners of the entari could have been worn down (as on the left) or tucked into the belt (as on the right) but not mixed. I did one up and one down to demonstrate the two ways it could be worn, and to more easily show the layers underneath. I’m probably going to be wearing mine down, since most of the ones worn up have a wide strip of silk on the inside edge as a decoration, and mine does not. Yet.
