Saree School Lesson 20 - No sew blouse alteration.

A quick temporary fix - perfect for when you’re in a pinch or “borrowing” Amma’s sarees + blouses.

  • Use good quality, sturdy pins and take your time to lock the safety pin (you don’t want them coming undone).
  • If you look closely at the body pins in the after shots you can see some of the pins and it’s not very even - don’t be like me and take your time/redo if need be. Tip: if you have to choose, take more time on the sleeves vs body because the body will be covered by the saree.
  • I only showed one side for demonstration but pin both sides so that it’s even and designs/zippers stay centered.

Saree School Lesson 18 - Fold forward and tuck.

If you have enough saree left over to create another pleat always create another pleat but if it’s not enough, then create a micro pleat at the right hip.

Folding forward ensures that the first pleat in the middle doesn’t open up and stray from the other pleats.

Saree School Lesson 11 - How to preserve your lace sarees.

Feed a band-aid, button, or piece of paper through the safety pin before pinning your saree. I used white paper here so that it is easy to see in the video but would recommend using a similar colour to the saree.
