How to use old chiffon sarees in 8 fantastic ways

As we all know that many of our sarees have some sentiments attached to them and are very close to our heart, but at the same time we find them torn at many places which makes us feel sad. Today I will mention some beautiful reuses of these torn sarees. If your old chiffon saree is torn from the pallu or edges you can attach a silk border at the edge to get rid of the torn part. You can also use Kundan work borders, Katha stitch borders with some nice hangings at the edges. This gives a completely new look to the saree.

You can use your old sarees to make nice Kurtis, as we can use the pallu part for the top and the inner part to make salwaars or palazzos. Even a layered dhoti style salwar can be made with your saree. This idea works really well as the layers would fall beautifully with this material. For the dupatta you can use another chiffon saree with contrast design or color. The attire as a whole will give a modern look to your image.

If u do not have enough material/ cloth for your entire outfit you can just make a chiffon lehenga and team it up with a silk dupatta, after using in lehenga the rest part can be used to make a blouse or a small lehenga for your daughter.
