I have been experimenting with indian saari blouses for long now and this time i am trying a different cut. Made of a polyester blend fabric-from the saari itself. The front pieces are cut on bias. Its fuly lined with body colored two by two cotton. Tiny bra straps at the shoulder. hook closures in the front. I used stiff for facing in front opening, where the hooks are placed(may be not a good idea to cut front pieces on bias and then use stiff for facing, coz, when the fabric stretches, stiff doesnt and it doesnt look as good, worn with the saari, its get covered so not visible). cap sleeves with fabric from saari border. M not completely happy, but in totality it was ok.
