6 Ways Revamp Your Mum’s Old Saree

  Finding a perfect dress for a party or any other occasion, don’t go to the mall instead dig out your closet. It’s time to air out those old sarees hidden in your/Mum’s closet.
Here’s are a few great tips to glam up your or mum’s old sarees with a simple trick !
1). Upcyle your old saree by turning it into kaftan or a shrug. Go for a bandhani, block printing or an embroidered style saree works best for a kaftan/shrug .Pair it with a simple tee and jeans.

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?

Start digging in your closet already!Be kind and Have a happy week ahead!
