Order a Customized Sari Blouse and Sari Tutorial on Ordering a Customized Sari Blouse and Sari
NOTE: This site no longer takes sari blouse orders as of May 2007. Please use this site as a guide in taking your measurements for tailoring your blouse in India or possibly Indian or other tailors familiar with sari blouse stitching outside India.

1. Do you want a cotton, silk or synthetic fabric blouse? Note: Generally a cotton blouse is by default. If you buy a silk or synthetic sari that comes with a blouse piece attached, that would be the sari blouse, unless you want cotton instead or in addition to.

2. Do you want a cotton lining in the blouse? (It is noted that most of the time sari blouse pieces that are 100% cotton are thin, transparent. Bras can be seen through the back. Specify 100% cotton- thicker variety if you don't like the tranparency, or opt for a lining. Also enquire if the blouse piece needs to be washed before tailoring to prevent shrinkage.)
Yes or No

3. Do you want a border:
No or Yes - On the sleeve, back of neck, front of neck or back and bottom of blouse

All will close in the front with hook closures.

4. Do you want a 'bra holder"? (This is a small tab of fabric placed in the inside of each sholder that snaps the bra straps into place.) Yes or No
