I bought a beautiful silk sari on my trip to India last year (6yds of pure silk in a deep blue/purple with a mustard section and stunning gold detail). I drafted a pattern for myself, based on a typical 1950s silhouette. It has an integral net petticoat to help the skirt flare. I used the decorative border to make a matching belt/ cummerbund.
