Sari dress

Added Aug 3, 2008

Durban, South Af...






Last weekend I went to the fleamarket and scrounged through piles of Indian sari’s – I found this gem right at the bottom for R5 ($0.50!), I LOVE this fabric – the detail of the sequins and flowers is beautiful. We went to a wedding last night so I quickly made this dress and was still trying to finish sewing it an hour before the wedding so last minute! I still have enough fabric to make a cushion from another beaded section of the sari so I’m very excited :)

Material Notes

Indian sari, teal ponjee lining

    Thank you SO much everybody for all the compliments :-) I was just very lucky to find such a good piece of fabric. Maldrich – The bottom of the sari always has a big border so I used that for the waist band, and the side borders for the top part, you usually get about 3m of fabric in a sari so it’s a very good deal!!
