2). Turn an old Banarasi saree into a beautiful evening dress. Make sure you choose the right silhouette that highlights the beautiful features in your saree like the pallu or the border.
3). Make a silk saree into a kurta. Use the pallu as dupatta/stole and pair it palazzos & trousers to give it a formal wear look.
4). If you have a heavy border saree cut it out and make a potli bag. Buy beaded or fancy dori/strings to make the handle of the bag.
5).Make a multi layered dress out of a chiffon sari. Add sequin to the border and yoke to glam it up.
6). The best for the last! Revive your once favourite saree by tailoring it to a lehenga (long flowy skirt). Redo the original border by adding embroidery, kundan work and zari. Use the pallu as the dupatta or get a readymade one.
Here’s a picture of a lehenga that I designed out of a simple yellow sari. Add tassels on the side of the lehenga. You can get a choli (crop top) stitched with a contrasting color or just buy a new one.
Doesn’t she look gorgeous?
