A crocheted sari blouse - since this is a garment that has to fit snugly, and since thread is an inelastic fibre, it took a lot of experimentation to get this to work.

I'll claim it's because my eyes are getting old: what stitch did you use for the back and the band?  It looks neat!

Pretty! I'd wear one, and I'm not from India! Add me to those asking for a pattern.

Thanks so much for the compliments.
Muria - Here you are http://www.nurhanne.net/filatim/crochet/p1.html ( It is the one called " Cloque pattern" ).
WIPS - A sari blouse is a semi-undergarment - the front is covered by the sari itself, only the back is seen. I'll see if I can find a link to saris in general.
There is no pattern as such. I have written out my method which is enormously long, partly because I have no experience of pattern writing, and partly because it is completely adjustable - thread, hook, stitch, measurements - are all up to the crocheter. If you want it, I might be able to send it out as a Word file. Let me know.
