The girls have been studying ancient India this past week. Sarah always is very interested in the clothing of the cultures we study. This time instead of making a costume for herself, she decided to make a Sari for her doll Kit. This was a good choice as a Sari for a woman takes about 12 yards of fabric. Wrapping that much fabric around ones body is not easy, even doll size, so we went in search of some help. We came across a site that had simple directions explaining how to wear the Sari. You can find the directions here http://www.exoticindiaart.com/howtowear/2/
The hardest part was making the pleats and tucking them into the petticoat. Believe it or not, that is how they hold all that fabric up! We also found a video on youtube that was really cute and helpful. Unfortunately I can't find that link anymore.
Well, here is Kit in here finished Sari.
Sarah you did a great job!
