Indian Choli sewn convertible skirt.

Supplies: Thrifted Indian Choli. 


I got this in the Halloween section of a thrift store. It was 50% off so I got it for basically nothing. The beading was amazing along with the vibrant colors...I made pockets with the sleeves so I didn't have to cut the beaded work. Sewed the back up with a zipper and wah la! 


Before it was a lovely Indian Choli...I didn't take my scissors to it so I can still wear it as a cropped blouse.
When thrifting I always look for unique fabrics like this!


Up close! 


Oh I love it…

  3. It looks like an Indian Choli (top) to be worn either with a sari or a ghagra, but I love your version :)

  4. It is traditional Indian blouse..also called called as choli..usually worn with equally elaborate and rich and heavy flowy skirt all the way to your feet..also called as lehenga..
    To westernize it..it can be worn as a crop top with flared denims.
    But this is an unexpected awesome twist.
    Great job!

  17. You are unreal!! I have been sitting here in my kids' room, trying to get my youngest munchkin down for nap, and have read through a ton of your tutorials... I welcome any afternoon where he fights sleep and I have to sit with him with your blog open on my laptop! Awesome renovations of sweet thrift store finds. I don't know how you make the time to create such rad stuff. I sew also, and am constantly turning my clothes and too-little tanks/tees into aprons and skirts for my daughter (when I get a sec to do it!) but I want to try every one of your designs so I can keep some of my cast-off clothes for ME! Awesome. You're my fave.

  26. All these services will be affordable, meaning they can be intended for anyone people regardless of the their income may perhaps be. A prevalent perception is definitely that exclusively wealthy people today employee carpet cleaners, however that isn't true. There are plenty of cleaning companies who sadly are inexpensive so that they can allow sometimes those for minimum wage to acquire their ironing and also cleaning done one or more times a weeks time. deep cleaning services dubai
