Have You Ever Worn A Sari?

Kavi_sari_medium

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:)

A New Member Of My Family

Happy Holidays BurdaStylers, I feel blessed this cold & snowy December Holiday season. My sister Megan had a baby girl on December 14th and we have been tucked away at our parent’s house on snow covered Cape Cod snuggling with a newborn bundle of joy. I don’t want to go back to reality (orders, sewing, house renovations) just yet, I’m cherishing these first days of my first niece Louisa Jane. Happy New Year to everyone!

1 . Where are you from and/or where do you live?
Originally I’m from Lithuania, a tiny country of three million people by the Baltic sea. I spent the biggest part of my life over there, but as life is full of surprises I live in Dallas, Texas now. My husband Gavan was the reason I moved out here a year ago.

2. What was the 1st thing you made? How did you start sewing?
Now its really hard to remember what exactly i made first, but i guess it was something for my Barbie. I started to sew when i was a teenager and it was my grandma’s “fault”.

Fabric Wrapping Holiday Gifts

Fabricwrap_medium

As I spent the evening wrapping gifts to place under our Christmas tree, I wondered why I even bothered using paper for most of them – wouldn’t fabric be a more fun way (not to mention green) to recycle some of the stashed holiday fabric I’ve been storing for years? Furoshiki, a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that were used to tie up bundles of clothes, food and gifts, has gained popularity over the last few years with a number of videos, websites, and books such as Wrapagami and Gift Wrapping with Textiles devoted to the subject. Of course, there’s nothing like the sound of tearing paper on Christmas morning, but if you’re looking for a novel way to present a gift, try wrapping yours in fabric!
