These Lehenga concept sarees have been making waves in Indian markets since last year, i have been wanting one for long. But market ones are too highly priced. So decided to make one for myself
This has been my creation right from sketch to end product. I have been wanting one of those RTW lehenga saree types for long time now. So i decided to make one for myself. I had bought this plain faux goergette puple saree long back and decided to use it for this project.
Project RTW Saree was born ; Time taken – one day for concept. one day for drafting pattern, one day for finetuning and sketching pattern on to fabric. 8 days for all the bead work (outsourced, design chosen and given)
2 days to assemble the garment. Thanks to my little sister who worked as my apprentice doing all the hardwork (Read Handwork) involved.
Pallu Honeycomb arrangement was made her fully using handwork. Beadwork was done by my zardosi friend’s able craftisans.
Faux Georgette for main fabric; Crepe Lining and cotton innerlining
Behind the seams with Marina von Koenig Part 2
Get all 11 of these retro inspired patterns for one low price!
