It is worn as the bottom portion of a Gagra choli or Langa Voni. It is secured at the waist and leaves the lower back and midriff bare. In the Indian subcontinent, various types of traditional embroidery work are done on lehenga, with Gota patti embroidery being one of popular types for the festivals and weddings.
The origin of modern Lehenga can be traced back to the mughal era. It was in the beginning worn simply by women in Mughal era. During the 10th century, Lehenga choli became popular as an attire amongst women mainly in North India. It evolved through fine craftsmanship with the arrival of Mughals in India and their subsequent rule from the 16th to the 18th century.
The Ghagri was a narrow skirt six feet long the same length as original antariya. This style can still be seen worn by Jain nuns in India.
