As it had been horrible the day before, I had decided not to drape a saree today. But I had a change of mind.
I had bought this saree some 20 years back from the Exhibition in C R Park. It is a very soft cotton, batik print. I had draped it a few times.
My saree is NOT handloom but my embroidered Khadi blouse is! Counting it towards a handloom wear leading up to August 7.
A few years ago, I told mom to give it away along with a few others as I was not going to drape sarees any more. My mom being mom, knows me better that I do myself. She simply kept those sarees away from my eyes. When I started this pact, she quietly returned the “give away” to my wardrobe!
Mix and matched with a Khadi blouse. My mom is a wizard, she fixed that blouse such that it fits me again after many many years….
