Upcycled an old kurta in to a shrug and happy with how it looks. Little story about this kurta:
During my diploma days (4th Sem) at the National Institute of Design I made friends with the loveliest bunch from textile design department.
If you have friends in the textile department while at #NID, you are going to get the best deals with clothes, they know where to source the fabric from and best places to get them stitched. So I got this fabric from Sanskruti, we went for the cut pieces lot, as students one tries to save every single penny. I got this stitchted at "Amrapali Tailor" near Ellis Bridge #Ahmedabad. Take a peek in the wardrobe of any old NID faculty/Alumni (Aditi Ranjan and such.) and you would get atleast one dress made at his shop. Legend has it that, the master tailor, didn't take mesuresments for your piece and still would stitch the best fitting cloths. Loved this kurta and wore it so many times but the body changes in seven years, it stopped fitting me anymore and I had a hard time letting it go. I am happy that I can wear this again. I am a sucker for nostalgia and all things old.
