That's one gorgeous dress. Me wants. Was it hard turning it into a dress from a sari? My friend works at a Indian Fabric/Sari store~ I'm tempted to make one but seeing as I've never done major sewing, I'm not exactly ready for advanced stuff XP~

thanks for your kind comments everyone!!!! Cheesy

Yuenie- since this type of sari is basically 6.5 metres of fabric (about 5 metres of that being a continuous pattern, theres a huge detailed shoulder panel taking up the rest) its basically just like making something from ordinary fabric. the advantage of the sari is that its designed to be worn as a length of cloth, so the selvage (the edge) is really neat and doesnt need hemming to make it look finished. and anything that cuts out the boring process of hemming is a bonus. Skirts are incredibly easy to make out of saris, you just have to pick the right type of fabric for the purpose (some saris are thin and floaty and need to be worn with another layer, others are quite heavy). from the way this one was packaged it seems to be a very formal high quality one.

Ismelstar- the skirt was a pain to work out. its easier to draw than explain in words-

(excuse the messy photoshop doodle LOL)

so the hieght of each triangle is the same as one edge of the original square but the bottom edge of the triangle is twice the hieght. if that makes sense...

unfortunately the black section of the fabric has a diagonal pattern and there was no way to match it up Sad but at least the hemline matches.

oh wow-- great fabric!  And I think the belt-type thing really makes the dress work.  You look so great in it!  How does it look over jeans?
