One of the cool things about sarees is everything that can be done with all that luscious yardage. Cutting them into contemporary fashions and/or making Victorian-era gowns from the beautiful material is a lot of fun. Garments from other cultures are great to make from sarees as well. I’ve done taubs for middle-eastern dances from brightly coloured sarees, and here we see a cute kimono that features the sari borders. This outfit was photographed during a kimono fashion show at the Anime North Convention, held in Toronto in May.
