This Tailor Can Turn Your Worn-Out Silk Saris Into Stunning Lehengas

Maanya posted on 1st January

Ten-Second Takeaway

Shahpur Jat’s lanes are full of secrets and I can let you in on one – Shop no. 155 belongs to a masterji who can stitch up a storm.

Sewing A New Beginning

And giving a fresh lease of life to clothes that are worn, damaged or just not as trendy anymore, this tailor is now my go-to person for a quick upcycling job. I took my nani’s old silk sari to him, this Diwali, and two days later I had a brand new lehenga.

There’s two reasons this made me happy – the first was that it felt wonderful to wear something that my grandmother had loved and cared for, all these years. More importantly, Diwali is about celebrating a new beginning and watching that olive green sari turn into a more contemporary silhouette gave me immense satisfaction, instead of just buying something new.

Here's What To Do

Finding his shop can be a little tricky, but a good landmark to remember is Ganpati Medicos. Carry your sari {or whatever else you’d like to have altered or remade} and a reference image of what you’d like the final outfit to resemble.

He’s happy to discuss fabrics and ideas with you, but I’d suggest you go with a fairly clear idea of what you’re looking for.

Re-stitching the saree set me back by INR 2,300, which is quite a bargain if I may say so myself. Forgive the cliche, but the feeling of wearing my new lehenga was priceless.

So, We're Saying...

Let masterji give your wardrobe a simple, yet effective, update and you now know where to take all those beautiful sarees.
