Finally, I got some time for a blog post. I made many indian blouses till now. Indian blouses have both very simple to very complex patterns. These are just a few variations on how they are made.
Here is the final version of the Indian blouse I talked about in my previous blog post.
Both the front and back neck has a piping with metallic gold single fold bias strip which is available in most fabric stores.
I attached fabric tubes at the back with beads. This part is optional, though fabric tubes act as a support to hold the shape for deep necks.
Side view: I cut out two motifs off the extra part of the saree and patch worked it to the back of the blouse.
Front view: This blouse has front opening.
Here‘s another version of the blouse with opening at the back.
Sleeves can be of various lengths, short, 3/4th sleeves or long.
This is another variation where the opening is on the side.
P.S: This dress form is not my twin. I haven’t had a chance to buy my twin yet. I just fell in love with this antique singer dress form and it had to come home with me. Indian blouses generally are worn with a very snug fit unlike what you see here on the dress form.
