    WOW! The work is most impressive! Wearing that would certainly make you feel feminine. It sure beats sweat pants and a tee shirt.

    beautiful work! I used to use some of the heavily embroidered sari's when I was working for a designer in the 80's. We had to cut out the huge flower designs and bond to an outfit or a jacket. After bonding, I had to applique the designs, then the designer beaded them.

    Where I live we have a lot of East Indian people and stores. I asked once if I could buy one my size (3x). They said yes but I always wonder if people would think a white person in an sari is very weird.
    Your work is gorgeous.

    How much does a sari like the one shown in the photo weigh? It's gorgeous!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Stunning work. Can't imagine me doing anything remotely like that. I consider myself a good seamstress - up to and including - tailoring. But that is so far over my head, it's not funny. Pat yourself on the back. Awesome!!!
