Step by Step guide on how to take measurements for a Ready made Saree

Step 1: Get a Friend to Help you and measure over your undergarments.

FULL BODY HEIGHT - Stand with your feet slightly apart and your back to a wall. Measure from the floor to the top of your head. ex:- 5.3", 5.7"

Step 2: Waist - Measure your waist :- 29, 30 , 26 , 21 in Inches.

Step 3: FULL HIP - Measure over an undergarment over the point where your hips protrude the most. Measure around the fullest part of your hips, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.  ex:- 39.00, 40.00

Step 4: WAIST TO FLOOR (Wearing position) - Hold the tape at the waist (point where you normally wear pants). Measure downwards to the heel. - In order to stitch the Saree according to your body height and waist take the measurement from where you would like to wear the Saree - Like in the Pictures shown below K1, K2 or K3.

K1- On the Waist
K2 - One Inch Below the Waist

K3- One Inch below the navel

Step 5:  HEELS - If you want to wear the Saree with heels, include the height of your heels.

Once you have taken these measurements you can easily get your Saree stitched by your tailor according to your body and height measurements. All you have to do is get it altered according to your height and waist and then Stitch it like a ordinary Skirt. You can also get a customised In-skirt made or you can opt for a lining instead of it. Stitched Saree's are a Revolution and only take 2 minutes to Wear!!. You can Dance, Run, Walk but you won't trip over. I got my Lehenga Saree stitched for my birthday at my boutique "Ambiance Kreators" it was the best decision I ever made. I purchased this Lehenga Saree from unfinished and unstitched.

It took me 1 HOUR to do my Make up and Hair and only 2 Minutes to wear the Saree and Blouse :). The Blouse was Stitched as "A Backless Padded Blouse". It was extremely comfortable to wear this blouse and was absolutely hassle free. No need to wear a clear strapless or transparent/clear back bra's.


I hope that this little article helped and you were able to understand how Stitched Saree's are made? and how convenient they are to wear!!

Dreamzone Vibes 360 degress Fashion Show at Chennai Trade Centre in 2013

Dreamzone Vibes 360' Degrees Fashion Show At NIFT Chennai in 2011


My Experience in the first month at Dreamzone:

It's been a Month since I joined my Master's in Fashion Design at Dream zone and it has been an experience to remember and I will remember these days all my life. Designing is not a Kid's job it is "Real Hard Work" for "Real Men and Women" and let me tell you that it everything but not easy. You really need to have an artistic talent to make this happen!

In the first month of fashion design I learnt some really interesting things and that took me straight back in time of my kindergarten days  "Playing with colours" and how beautiful and mysterious colours can be Making colour wheel with poster colours was very interesting!! Colour Wheels Answers the Question- How are Colours Made?...It was very amazing to find that 6 primary colours Red, Blue,Green,Yellow,White &Black can give you 108 tints and shades (Light and Dark). Just one drop of White or Black changes the tints and shade of the colour.

Add a drop of Black to Yellow = you get Lemon Green :)
Mix one drop of Red to Yellow= you get Tan Shade
Mix two drops of Yellow to Blue = you get Turquoise Green

How Interesting!!!.........

Other things that I learned except painting?...Yeah!! Block Figures, Fleshing and Sketching!!...all the basic things fashion design is made of. You can see some of my work in the pictures.

If you are wondering why I am blogging less?.. this is why,  I have been too busy studying designing as it requires a lot time and dedication and only by hard work and determination you can excel in this field and another reason - I was really sick this month :( - cough, cold and fever. I never felt this weak in years.....
god help me!! :)

But yes, I am recovering and feeling better day by day. The weather is very unpredictable here in India these days. April is meant to be a Hot Month however there has been a major fluctuation in temperature this time and sometimes it hot, it rains and just now theirs dust storm ..therefore lot of people are falling sick.. it's bound to happen!! people are facing breathing and wheezing issues...  :(  and my best wishes to all those people around who are sick...GET WELL SOON!!

Here's some of my work ---


I am sure that I will be able to do better in future!!

My Dog Sohrab
Handsome as ever!!
Enjoying on the Couch!!

Hi, My Name is Sohrab A.K.A. Maddog Tannen as Surabhi and Anirudh nicknamed me. I am a Black Labrador, I am very naughty and playful. I love to eat and I am very greedy about food, I will puke all the food out but I won't stop eating. In the morning I eat eggs, milk and bread. I don't like to eat the bread by myself so my family members feed me by hand. They sometimes complain that I have royal habits but I can't help it. My family loves me a lot they give me pretty nice things to eat like, curd, chicken, paneer,biscuits and sometimes I dig into halwa...

I broke the dining table and ate dad's cashbook and porsche design glasses but everybody still loves me. I tease the neighbourhood dogs and make them go furious that's just one of my hobbies. I love to play ball, catch and hide and seek. I have been vaccinated and taken to doctor regulary but somehow I just can't stop being naughty!

Bye Bye (Woof) (Woof)

I am sure you must enjoyed Sohrab's introduction. He is one of the most naughtiest dogs I ever had. Infact I can vouch for it that he is a menace just like the dog in the movie "Marley and Me". He even ran away with my necklace once, I was so scared that he would gulp it down, I had run around the house to retrieve it back from him. I was lucky that he did not swallow it down otherwise I would been standing with pipe to clean his poo next morning!! :)

He is Naughty and a Beautiful dog and We all love him. Have you loved your Dog or Cat today????

Love them Show that you care!
Love Surabhi
