Indian Sari Costume
Surprisingly easy to make! No sewing needed.
- 3 Yards of 60″ Fabric (will make two saris) We used an inexpensive acetate used for linings.
- Fabric Scissors
- Tee Shirt (fitted tees are more expensive so buy the regular fit two sizes smaller)
- Gem Glue
- Gem Body Art Adhesive
- Flip Flops
- Leggings or Stretchy Shorts
Cut the neck band off the tee shirt. Cut the bottom off so it ends at your waist. Use gem glue to adhere gems to embellish tee shirt. (image 4 above)
Cut fabric in half the long way. You will have two 30″ x 3 yard pieces. Each will make one sari.
Beginning at one end, tuck the edge of the fabric into the waistband of leggings. Fold a pleat in the fabric and tuck the next section in the waistband. Continue pleating and tucking all around the waist. (images 1 – 3 above)
Throw the remaining fabric over your shoulder from back to front. Accessorize with jewelry. (image 4 above)
Use gem adhesive to adhere gems to face. (image 5 above)
