MMJ8 – Sari Sensation

When the sun turns out to play, the saris being worn at Walthamstow market really come into their own. They are absolutely glorious and this photo in no way does justice to Nheed’s outfit with the intricate sequin embroidery and floating chiffon in saturated turquoise.

Here’s another local sari photo I took last June:

Doesn’t she look fabulous?

Talking of fabulous… Yep, I’m wearing another Pendrell blouse, my NHS Direct Top. This is my favourite make of the three I’ve (so far) completed. Look at it. I may as well be carrying a sign asking, ‘Do I make you feel happy?’ The cotton print is gorgeous and reminds me of Kestrel Finds and Makes recently completed Crescent Skirt. Clearly, red flower prints are the way to go with Sewaholic patterns.

As I type this, the rain’s set in. It had better clear before tomorrow. How can I wear my purple sunglasses in a rainstorm?

    I love that lime and turquoise sari!
    I’m desperately waiting for my ebay money so I can buy the Pendrell. I’ve had the fabric picked out since Goldhawk Rd!

  2. I love saris! You can definitely wear your sunglasses in the rain, I was just wearing mine inside! I wanted to try them out after having bought them online

    You’ve had a great me-made week! I love the pendrell top – the colours of this one are really lovely. I also love the sari pictures – I always think that they look so beautiful and colourful.

    I thought you were going to say you made a Pendrell out of sari fabric, which might not be a bad idea! With a matching wrap skirt? Love the sunglasses!
