Next June my friends David & Kavi (of D.S. & Durga) are getting married! I am not only excited about this fated commitment because we’ll be in beautiful upstate New York amongst rolling green hills and the Hudson river, but that Kavi, being of Indian descent, has invited her girlfriends to wear hand-made Indian saris on the night before the wedding. The Mendhi party is very colorful and festive. Greens, oranges, pinks, blues, purples, yellows, reds. For the blouse, you have a choice of sleeveless, cap sleeves or a sleeve that reaches the bicep. If you have any other restrictions (not too low in the back or front, not too short, etc) let me know. I will get them cut to a few inches below the bust, which is standard. Even if the blouse exposes your stomach, the sari can be tied so it hides your tummy if you wish.
I need your help: has anyone ever made or worn a sari? Kavi has sent me a YouTube video on How to measure yourself for a sari but I am just looking for some tips. Would love to hear from you:)
