Saree Blouse : The Classic style Indian Saree Blouse is a form fitting top and is worn with the saree. The blouse is essentially is midriff baring garment. One can explore various unique designs and styles of sleeve like- sleeveless, half sleeves, three fourth sleeves or full sleeves and also try various neck options like- Square, Deep U, boat neck, V- Neck to name a few. Sakhi has experimented with the modest Indian blouse and created modern designs in this traditional format. The Blouse can be very demure to very glamorous depending on the design.
Petticoat : A petticoat or underskirt is a layer of clothing worn by women underneath the saree. The petticoat is a separate garment hanging from the waist. Saree petticoats must match the color of the saree and are usually made of comfortable cotton fabric, new additions are in san-Crepe, lycra and others. Special to Sakhi is Hakoba petticoats and Cut work embroidered petticoats in various colours.
Pallu : The fanciest patterned end or loose end of the saree. It falls over the left shoulder onto the back of the wearer so that the design is fully appreciated. The pallu normally is 1 meter in length and can be either neatly pleated or left loose with one end secured by safety pin.
Fall : Saree Falls is an inner cotton lining used to protect the lower end of the saree.
