First my idea was to just gather it at one side and make a simple gathered skirt. But then that would give me the maximum flare of 5m (length of saree minus its pallu). I thought why not make a 8-part gored skirt which ways I'd make the flare at the hemline about 6m! So that's what I did!
Mauve maxi skirt: Bhushavali
Earrings: Thrifted from a Flea Market in Chennai
That's the seal of the State Govt with our logo and with the details that the product is a freebie and some codes etc. I thought that's too cute(!) to discard. So I made it as a little charm like thing that hangs near the side-seam. So how's that skirt??? Btw, remember this top? I wore it here & here. I chopped off its sleeve to make it a very short sleeve so its made sense to me, than an elbow length half sleeve! The purple applique work in it matched with the mauve skirt and yup, that made the pair!
The photographs were taken in 3 different locations. The first two are from a pre-historic iron age rock art site near Hampi at a place called Onake Kindi in Anegundi. The last 2 two pictures are from Vittalla Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The others were clicked at Orange County Resort in Hampi.
