Description

This little dress I made from a thrifted silk sari to coincide with this weeks Sew Weekly theme Buttons she cost a staggering $2.99, true story. Yep! she is a little subdued for me but I feel I used the pattern on the fabric to it’s full potential. You can view more piccy’s on my Blog

    Sari fabric ROCK! You can do so much with all that fabric. Very ‘sweet’, though you’ve still managed to rock it.

    Looking at the pictures I thought that looked like sari fabric, then scrolled down to read that yep, that’s what it is!

    I’m in love! Absolutely stunning! My pic on my profile is of a skirt made with a whole Sari (and like 15 other m of fabric hahah). I am a bit of a Sari monster, I eat them if they are left unattended :D
