Hi, were the saris silk? (as is common) if so, how did you cope with the floppiness of the fabric??

No the sarees were not silk but a poli blend. I stabilized the fabrics so they would act like the cottons I was using.

I have brown saree and green saree fabric on my shelf and it never occurred to me to use it as you have. Your top is looking like a marble floor and I LOVE the patches with scallops and squiggles, especially the green at the top center. I am thrilled for you; your work glows.

Thank you so much. It has special meaning to me as I got the fabric in India.
