I made this for a wedding last week end. The blouse material was used from the saree it self and only the body of the blouse is lined. The saree is a blend fabric(feels less like cotton) with thread embroidery work all over. One of the selvedge had a nice border that i fell in love with at first sight. Its the traditional saree blouse but with little changes-actually for ease of sewing. The front blouse pieces and the lining are cut on bias. I used the border for the cap sleeves. I used single nylon thread to string the beads used for the sleeves. I used the scalloped selvedge from one side of the fabric to finish the neck edges. Hook closure in the center front. On the part of the saree which fell over the shoulder(called the pallu), I added some lace and trims to make it look better. I also cut border from a part of the saree (which would not be visible when draped) and attached it to the other edge which had only the scalloped embroidery. then I used white lace to hide the seam line, so i did the same for the other side too. Then I added some trim to the end of the “pallu”.
