Silk sari fabric project

IMG_0861

I mentioned in an earlier post (Vintage textiles) that I had plans for an old silk sari….here is an update.   I am using this gorgeous sari fabric to cover a coolie shaped lampshade using traditional techniques for silk shades.   I have lined the inside using ivory silk & the sari fabric is tightly pleated around the frame which is a time consuming process & uses so many pins!   Once the pleated silk is pinned into place I will sew it in place to the frame & lining…Silk sari fabric lampshade
