Pretty Up Your Blouse With Embroidery And Stone Work From This Tiny Shop On Comm Street
Small it may be but Reshma Tailors on Ebrahim Sahib Street is a favourite with the ladies thanks to their ability to take saree blouses to the next level. Elegant embroidery and stonework is their mainstay.
What Makes It Awesome
A hole-in-the-wall shop right below Dupatta Centre, Reshma Tailors sits beside this blouse trinket shop. Through the day, it sees a steady stream of customers, all women, who come by to get their saree blouses embellished. This place is ideal if you want traditional or slightly, blingy designs etched on that blouse that you are planning to wear for a wedding or some other grand outing.
The shop mostly deals with silk blouses but you can always find the occasional netted ones. You can come to them with an idea and they’ll help you build on it or you can pick directly from their catalogue. During our many trips here, we have spotted blouses sporting ornate peacocks studded with stones as well as geometrical patterns. Their floral designs too are popular and they range from simple strings of buds to big blooms that really stand out.
Many customers prefer to only have the embroidery work done here and then take their blouses for stitching to their usual tailor. But, the shop does take up tailoring work too. Prices begin at INR 1,500
