#47 Boro Mekhla – traditional

This is a traditional drape from Assam. But I am demonstrating it with a modern 6 yard sari. Traditionally the sari used is 3 yards long and 4feet high. But I don’t have any. So I took the tallest sari in the house. It belongs to my mother and its a beautiful blue Pochampally silk. It just so happened to be 4 feet high. So I folded it in half and that made it approximately 3 yards long. Tada!
