Saree Blouse Design

Casual Sophistication – blouse over the saree pallu – pallu tucked in the blouse

You know that if you tried to put the pallu on top of the blouse of this type, it will not work.

So this blouse over the pallu, or the pallu tucked in the blouse has a different vibe to it. Pallu doesn’t feel like “tucked” in the blouse.

But surprisingly, this combination is not bad. Casual sophistication.

Deepika loves Dev R Nil saris...    saree blouse design designer saree bollywood saree

Deepika Padukone At NDTV’s Indian Of The Year Awards 2014. Deepika picked a Dev R Nil sari for the Awards held last night.

I like Dev R Nil’s sarees and the blouse designs. You can sort of see a pattern there. Highly contrasting blouse that picks up a tad from the border of the saree.

Manish Malhotra’s Saree Lahenga at Femina Ms. India pageant

This is Manish Malhotra’s Lahenga- Saree for Jacquie Fernadez. 

It has some nice touches; in fact the design is purposefully structured to evoke the Shrilankan saree drape, but alas, I have strong dislike for this.

The earrings look right with the lahenga and that is the most flattering thing I can say about this.

The blouse is too plain, and the pallu looks so out of place. 

Should I really believe that his is Manish Malhotra’s?

A New Old Postcard of Gauhar Jaan

A New Old Postcard of Gauhar Jaan    vintage sarees saree history saree blouse design miscelleneous

Some of my first posts on Saree Dreams featured the enigmatic performer Gauhar Jaan.  Here she sits in a studio shot, demurely draped in a minimalist white saree with the pallu over her hair in back, and tucked across the front to the waist.  She looks rather like a Parsi lady – at least quite different from some of her more usual flashy stage costumes!  The blouse appears to be of embroidered velvet, the jewelry simple.  She was a complex woman; a singer with a mysterious background and life, very famous at the turn of the 20th century.  When I find a new image of her I feel as though I have discovered something about an old friend.
