Ready To Wear Saree

Kuala Lumpur, Ma...






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.

Material Notes

Faux Georgette for main fabric; Crepe Lining and cotton innerlining




Garment Type
Cotton, Organza, Other, Satin

    Gorgeous – I wish I had a place to wear one of these, so I’d have an excuse to make one! I saw the version you made for your daughter, and both are beautifully done!

    this is wonderful, and such a great idea. i understand the technique of wrapping a saree, but get it wrong every time, so the idea of a ready to wear saree is fantastic!
