Wanted to know if anyone every saw an out of the ordinary wedding dress. I dont mean that it was huge and extravagant with a looong tail. I mean something that wasn’t a typical ball gown dress and yet you can still say that it could be a wedding dress. For example, I saw a very intresting dress of a friend’s wedding who is an Indian Jew (from India) and made a gorgeous dress from a sari yet it didn’t look so much like a sari. (It was white with a lot of embroidery). Ever see something like this, and what do you think about the one I just mentioned?May 25, 2011 2:05 am at 2:05 am #771987cvParticipant
Sari is not a dress. Sari is 5 to 10 yards of fabric, which draped on a body of woman without sewing (pins used instead). Under this draped fabric woman wears pants made from the same or matching material and a short ( till waist line) top with very short sleeves. If you will take off pins, which hold the drapes, you will get back long piece of fabric.May 26, 2011 1:13 am at 1:13 am #771988
yes, I know what a sari is, thank you. (I was once an Indian for purim and wore a real sari for my costume). BTW, you dont have to necessarly wear pants with the sari. Usually you wear a long skirt, and sleeves could be long (though generally you are right that they are mostly short sleeves). It’s only recently with modernization that the sari dress/style has changed. Google some pictures and you will see all kinds. I think you are confusing the pants to the outfit of the salwar kameez and the ghagra choli.
What I meant was that she used the fabric of the sari to make her wedding dress. Sorry for not being clear enough.May 26, 2011 2:45 am at 2:45 am #771989cvParticipant
I learned a history of costume in a college. Probably Google is more reliable source.May 27, 2011 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #771990
Well then, I guess they misinformed you. I’m sure you can find some reliable sources on the internet. Just dont go to wikipedia because that is definatly not reliable.
