One of my clients had given a very ordinary saree for make over. Here it is :
I tried to convince her a lot , not to go for make over of this saree, because that would be expensive and it might not look good also. But as it was last gift from her parents, she wanted to wear this saree. So she insisted for make over.
It was really difficult for me. This is very normal saree, heavy lace won't look good for this. I went for normal zari lace. Attached it along the borders.Always I use screen printing for make over. Printed with big rose prints, as it is matching with lace.
And printed small motifs along on Pallu. Still I was not happy with the look, tried 3d glitter paint on the motifs and attached some kundans.
Closer view of the motif:
She is happy to with the work, at least she can wear this occasionally .
Soon working on writing on a series of sarees of India. In next post share about Kantha saree of West Bengal .
