Beaded Silk Sari Gown
- Design: Denise Gribble
This gown was commissioned to be made from a heavily beaded 6 yard Indian Sari…..gold metallic embroidery and beadwork in traditional Indian style on silk georgette…..into a contemporary style. Silk Saris are only 36"/90cm wide and the beadwork and patterns of the sari change along its length – placing many limitations before the designer/dressmaker. Some of the beadwork on this sari had to be re-worked on the final garment and produced a gorgeous gown – and one I enjoyed making very much! Click on an image for an enlarged view of the gown.
