Keeping my tryst with friday sarees (TGIF#2), here is an old favourite, a blue leheriya, which has been with me for many years. Inspired by Sushmita Sen in Main Hoon Na, I wore it with several variations in blouses, mirror work, bandhni, etc. over the years.
Last year, I was discussing sarees with my mother and asked her if I should make an anarkali kurta out of this one because I don’t feel like giving it away. She suggested: why don’t you revamp it with a border? So we went border hunting in craft shops. And we found this delightful black lace border with red roses. Ta…daa!…I have a new saree…and I am loving it.
