T-shirt and saree : fashion or faux pas

You know my love for saree and  how comfortable and beautiful they are.I did wear one for our annual costuming picnic for the last two years I believe.

Last year I wear a pink t-shirt that perfectly match the color of my saree.The fabric is cotton , strong even if it's thin.Making a traditional choli would be delicate.I try to make one in the green silk and I have difficulties with adjustment , as always.You have one chance or you make holes in the fabric.

I always wonder if it was a faux pas or somehow an insult to wear a t-shirt with my saree.This year again I plan to wear a t-shirt for a question of time and easier to breastfed .

Yesterday I found this article on Utsavpedia .What a nice surprise : it's totally fashion to wear a t-shirt to replace the choli (blouse) , it's call t-shirt saree.I was in and don't even know it.

Ladies if you want to try a saree but don't want to make the classic look , follow the fashion and try your favorite  or a matching t-shirt. Don't be afraid , you know now it won't be a faux pas or an insult to the indians traditions.
