Description

My husband is South Asian, and since I got married I’ve worn saris to some special occasions. The biggest problem is finding someone who can make a blouse that fits well. My first blouse (by an Indian tailor) was a misfit, quite literally. I then decided I could do better myself and made this turquoise blouse.

Material Notes

Pure silk sari. Comes with a 1.5 yard piece for the blouse, as well as 9 yards of silk for the sari itself. One also needs a cotton underskirt.

    You have done a fantastic job! Sari blouses are difficult to sew. You look pretty in a sari.

    I have made a few sari blouses for different people and have found that the Western figure does differ from the Indian figure to a large degree. I love the sari and how it feels when I wear it – your variation on the blouse is something that I hadn’t thought of, so will try that next time. Many thanks.
