In reply to: O/T Where to buy Indian clothing and cushion covers, etc... posted by Erika on July 23, 2002 at 18:32:31:Way back when I first was dying for a sari but had no clue where to
buy other than the super expensive Saree Center up the road, I
happened to be wandering in Walmart and came across a bin of cheap
material. I got a lovely sheer plaid in shades of green and blue that
was a dollar a yard. I've been in nice fabric stores that have
expensive trim for double the price at Walmart (same looking trim
too!) Though, admitedly, Walmart will be sort of plain versus an
actual sequined, beaded, embroidered sari with pallau. But you can
embellish to your heart's delight.
As for an actual sari or salwar kameez, if you are an ebay user I can
*HEARTILY* without hesitation recommend seller email@example.com.
Her sari's are of excellent quality, she is fast and very courteous.
The link below will show one of her current auctions. Be sure and
tell her txilar sent you!
Oh, and pillows, same thing, inexpensive fabric, sewn in a square
with a bit of trim on the front sides, down the center along with
some nice filmy drapes. Mmmmm sounds nice!
: I've run into people at parties asking if I would come "in costume"
: to make the hennaing (is that a word?) more of an experience. I'm
: looking at creating a whole atmosphere with Indian fabrics and
: pillows. I'd like to know where I can buy sari type clothing,
: pillows (or cases) and fabrics...as cheaply as possible. I'm
: defintely not into spending $25 for one pillow.
: P.S. Does anyone have photos of a set-up like i'm describing? I'd
: be interested in getting some ideas.
