I made a saree for my oldest daughter this summer. The blouse was pretty basic, nothing fancy. Because she is so young, I didn’t even have to do darts or any shaping. The fabric is silky and frays a lot, so I put used french seams to keep things together and make it not itchy for her (and so I wouldn’t have to line the whole thing).
She is still getting used to wearing it, and prefers the salwars and lenghas. But I think she still likes the bright pink and gold, and how grown up she looks in it.
