wow that sounds like fun!

Im afriad i cant help with tutorial, however im SURE ive seen someone on the clothing board who has made some salawars (probably not spelt right).

Anyway try and find it maybe?Also i think there may be a link to indian dress tutorials in the free tutorials or free pattern thread.

Maybe you could find something with a nice shape that isnt 'indian' and make it out of indian inspired fabric? with indian patterns or out of some really brightly coloures silk?

good luck!

Try searching for henna designs, and reproduce them on the sari with beads or sequins.

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

There are readymade trims (indianised stone work like kundan etc) available in the market, though i am not sure if it is available in your country.

As earlier suggested by another craftster you can stitch not necessarily indian outfit but using indian fabrics like silk or fabrics with indianised motifs to get that look and feel

As for indian clothes you can even try Lehenga choli (which is similar to mermaid like skirt though not exactly) and ghaghra choli (modifying circle skirts - fuller length). Choli is the top to be worn with them or for the saree as well.

I guess you meant how to wear a sari, because there is nothing like making a saree as it is 5.5 yards of fabric available as such in the market unless ofcourse you are weaving one of your own.

Anycase i am glad that indian outfits are getting recognition globally. Good luck to you and hope you look at your best and have a nice time as that is more important at the wedding.

Okay, the Institute of Draped Clothing is still operating. The best page to look at is http://www.idcw.org.uk/weblibrary.html. (This is a great site for when you don't have time to sew!)

It has on-line instructions for draping a sari.

If you want to make the blouse that goes underneath (The Indian ladies where I used to work just wore nice t-shirts) Folkwear (http://www.folkwear.com/asian.html) has a pattern, #134, that also has instructions, plus they have other Indian inspired styles.

I remember seeing a pattern for the blouse (choli) somewhere else, but I couldn't find it just now.

Unfortunately, it doesn't have the directions for draping a Kandyan sari.  I wonder if that's known by another name elsewhere?
