Some of best use of unused waste Saree.

Someone has rightly said, “Fashion is what you buy, style is what you do with it.” If your wardrobe is stacked with old sarees and you don’t know what to do with them , we suggest you create some exquisite dresses out of those unused garments. Mehta Saree Centre is pleased to share amazing tips on how to convert your old sarees into elegant dresses.

Anarkali Suits

Making Anarkali suits from sarees is the most obvious way of reworking the pattern of saree to suit your requirements. Sarees with beautiful embroidered borders, or with Zardozi, Kantha or sequins work can be utilised for making elegant suits for formal occasions as their borders can be used as lace in your Anarkali suit. Apart from laces, elegant patchwork or yokes can also be taken out from the old saree.

Skirts and Palazzos

If you want to keep it simple and make a dress suitable for office wear or daily wear, you can re- use your cotton sarees to make beautiful skirts and palazzos. The border of the saree would add grace to your skirt and make you feel confident, comfortable and in line with the latest trend throughout the day.

Party Dresses

If you want to stand out and look stunning in the next party, converting your mum’s old Kanjivaram saree into a glamorous nightgown or a cocktail dress can be a very good idea. Other good options for creating such dresses are Chanderi silk or Chanderi cotton sarees.

Traditional Jackets

Teaming your plain Kurtis with jackets made from old sarees is another way of putting it to good use. The best option for such garments is silk sarees. The finesse and brightness of the silk fabric add shine and a colourful hue to the otherwise plain kurti. Multi- coloured sarees can also be a good choice for such jackets.

Frocks and Lehengas for your little girl

Another very relevant way of putting your old sarees to good use is to create frocks and lehengas for your baby girl. Plain sarees with brocade borders can be used for making such dresses that would bring a smile on your daughter’s face for sure!

Scarves and stoles

If your saree is damaged and cannot be utilised for making a complete dress, you can re-use it to make trendy scarves and stoles. Silk and cotton scarves can add a completely new look to your dress. The best part of using scarves is that it can be coupled with western outfits as well.
